Living in Melbourne for four months, I’ve managed to pretty much nail the tourist thing. I’m leaving in a couple of weeks and have compiled a list (and a few pics) of where I’ve visited.
Suggestions for rainy days, big day outs, markets, national parks…etc, so here we go..
Old Melbourne Gaol
National Gallery of Victoria
Sea Life Centre
Hoyts Cinema (‘cheap’ seats on Tuesdays)
Yarra Valley (Wine Tours)
St. Kilda & Albert Park
Market Arts Centre
Queen Victoria Market
Chadstone Shopping Centre (biggest in Australia)
St. Kilda Beach
Squeaky Beach (Wilson’s Promontory)
*The mister’s photos, I unfortunately wasn’t able to go Grampians*
Chinatown (especially dumplings!)
8Bit (cheap burgers)
San Churro’s or Max Brenner (for hot chocolates)
Acland Street, St Kilda
Bay Street, Brighton
Hawthorn Road, Caulfield
*Avoid Hardware Lane if you’re hungry, it is a tourist trap*
Obviously I haven’t gotten around to every thing, I’d still like to visit the Hot Springs, Philip Island and other places but I hope this list either helps with your travels to Melbourne or inspires one!
