• Check out what’s happening at the Arts Centre

Melbourne is a city which has to be experienced, so if you’re lucky enough to have more time here, reap the benefits. Meander along the city streets and take the time to chill out and soak up this amazing city.

Explore the back alleys and stumble across the coolest bars and cafes that are hidden from those less adventurous than yourself.

Eat, drink, shop and explore the following culturally diverse areas; Victoria Street, Sydney Road, Lygon Street, China Town and Smith Street.

Immigration Museum, The Melbourne Zoo, Old Melbourne Gaol are also well worth a visit if you have the time.
