Five Melbourne attractions you have to experience
Melbourne has plenty to keep visitors on the go, including a superb range of world-class attractions.
Here are five of the must-dos during your visit.
Eureka Skydeck 88
Eureka Tower soars 300 metres into the Melbourne sky and its distinctive architecture is instantly recognisable from across the city. Keep an eye out for The Edge poking out from the top of the building. It’s a glass cube where the floor literally dissolves in front of your very eyes! From Eureka Skydeck 88 you’ll enjoy absolutely spectacular views of the CBD and many of Melbourne’s famous landmarks.
Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)
Nothing beats experiencing a sporting match at the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), but if you don’t have that opportunity during your stay, you can still explore the ground inside and out on a guided venue tour. Go behind the scenes and see the player change rooms, players’ balcony, Bill Lawry Cricket Centre and the Long Room, and take a walk on the hallowed turf (all subject to availability). The MCG is also home to the National Sports Museum, which offers an amazing range of interactive experiences.
Melbourne Star Observation Wheel
Melbourne Star Observation Wheel offers absolutely sensational views as you soar 120 metres into the air. From the peak you’ll be able to spot Mount Macedon, the Dandenong Ranges, the Docklands precinct and of course — the magnificent city centre. Star Observation Wheel is located in The District Docklands, which offers a plethora of shopping and dining options.
Werribee Open Range Zoo
Encounter the wild animals of the Serengeti on the outskirts of Melbourne at fabulous Werribee Open Range Zoo. See giraffes, rhino, antelope, zebras, Australian natives and more on an African-style game drive through the zoo’s extensive open grasslands. There are lots of other furry and feathered inhabitants to meet back at the main precinct. Werribee Open Range Zoo offers a fabulous day out for the whole family.
Colonial Tramcar Restaurant
Enjoy an unforgettable meal in sumptuous surroundings on Melbourne’s iconic Colonial Tramcar Restaurant. Climb on board an authentic and immaculately restored heritage tramcar for a four-course lunch or a three-course early dinner/five-course late dinner, served to your table as you glide through the streets of the Victorian capital. Australian wine, beer, spirits, soft drinks, and tea and coffee are all included. This experience is not to be missed!
