About Melbourne Tourism
Nestled along the eastern coast of Australia, Melbourne is the capital of the famous state of Victoria, which is home to many indigenous Aboriginal residents of the country. Hence, Melbourne is also famed as a cultural and fashion capital of Australia. Other than Sydney, Melbourne is the most happening city of the country. It is so prominent in the cultural field as well as in terms of traveling, that people hold Melbourne in the same standard as that of Sydney.
Nature in Melbourne:
In spite of being one of the most urban cities of the world, Melbourne, Australia is in touch with a lot of natural bounty in and around it. In the city itself, there is a famous Melbourne Zoo and the Royal Botanic Gardens to enjoy an excursion. One is devoted to the animal kingdom and another to the plant kingdom, both of these attractions are home to more than enough species of each type. Outside the city’s immediate limit, there is Healesville Sanctuary, where one can feed the kangaroos and the koalas. There is the Werribee Open Range zoo as well, which is like a small part of Africa with its Savannah-type grasslands all around. Moving away from the wildlife, Port Phillip Bay has some mention-worthy beaches to swim like St Kilda. Port Campbell National Park and its Twelve Apostles are perhaps the greatest attractions for natural beauty near the city of Melbourne, Australia.
Unique Adventure Activities in Melbourne:
Unlike Sydney, Melbourne tourism does not have a long list of adventure activities. But it has some of the most unconventional ones. Three of them are very prominent. One is the protruding glass cube from the Eureka Skydeck on the 88th floor, which makes you feel like suspending in the air. Another is the shark diving and Oceanarium visit to the Melbourne Aquarium. The last one is skydiving. Two other very popular places are the Great Ocean Road and St Kilda Beach.
Major attractions in Melbourne:
1. Flinders Street Station
This colonial era, yellow coloured building is the oldest railway station in Australia, and till date, it ferries more than 105,000 people every weekend. It is the central station of the city and a major attraction in Melbourne, Australia. The vintage architecture lends the historic charm to the busy station.
2. Federation Square
There is nothing much to see in Federation Square on your Melbourne travel. But the cultural institutions host some event or the other every day – be it a play, a musical concert or something else. It is a great place to appreciate art and people-watching on a leisurely afternoon.
3. Queen Victoria Market
Queen Victoria Market is the main marketplace in Melbourne. From organic products and groceries to clothes, jewellery and other souvenir items, this place has it all. For one month each in winter and summer, there is a night market here which has the most eclectic blend of gourmet food you have ever seen.
4. The Docklands
The seaside promenade area has cruise boats leaving the harbour in the water. But one the land, it is lined up with numerous restaurants, bars, shops and entertainment places. The Docklands is the perfect place to spend an evening to know about Melbourne.
5. Yarra River and Cruising
Yarra River is the lifeline of Melbourne. It is around this river that the Aboriginals had built their civilization. There are many cruises which can be enjoyed on this historic river. The usual public one during the daytime is cheap and follows one route only. Private cruises at night can be rented for a more lavish experience.
Popular foods in Melbourne:
Famed for great coffee, one can hop on to some amazing cafes in Melbourne to sip a hot coffee over long chats with their loved ones. Visit to Top Paddock for Ricotta Hotcakes, Belle’s Hot Chicken for Baller Bucket, Din Tai Fung for deserts, Jinda Thai for Boat Noodles, and other famous food spots to enjoy a brunch, lunch or dinner.

Tusharchawla's 7 days trip to MelbourneI I have raised my concern regarding charge of 85 AED to me at Aquaventure for availing locker facility. However no satisfactory response is received as on date. I was constraint to pay 85AED at the Aquaventure to keep my fresh clothes in the locker there and this amount is paid by me over and above the cost already paid to you for the entrie trip. There is nowhere mentioned in the internary nor we were told in advance that we will have to bear such unexpected and huge cost. The internary only mentions about taxes to be paid to the hotel at the time of check-in and we paid that. No other charges were to be paid in addition to the cost of the trip. I seek refund for the same since i have received no satisfactory response to this. In case you are unable to give a valid reason, i hope this trip to be last with your Company looking at your inconsiderate attitude. You must suppose to know that if one visits to water park, the person will carry fresh pair of clothes. Please give explanation why this amount is charged over and above the cost already paid to you and why this was not mentioned in the internary.
Shridhar's 2 days trip to MelbourneIt was a wonderful trip to Australia. Raunak was very cooperative towards the entire trip.I had no issue with the visa and the entire team was extremely supportive towards the same. I would definitely recommend people contact them for your trip.

Madhavi's 7 days trip to MelbourneFabulous. Travel Triangle and Wanderbird had booked hotels at prime locations. Very well coordinated with hotels, cabs and all entertainment parks. Had no problem whatsoever at any place. The beautiful view from our balcony of our room at Hotel Mantra, GoldCoast.
Saurabh's 9 days trip to MelbourneIt was my first international trip with my wife and I am very thankful to Wanderbird and Travel Triangle for arranging such an amazing trip. Raunak from Wanderbird has customized the trip as per our requirements and also gave genuine advice of what to include and what not to. Raunak has helped us in each and every thing, booking all the activities, flight tickets, internal movements and all stays and everything was spot on. We were a bit scared if we will get visa or not but he calmed us and also did all the visa formalities for us. Best part of Raunak is that he is very supportive and always available for any query that we have. He is also talking to us while we were on our trip and asking if everything is going well. Best part of the trip was Skydiving and Hamilton Island which was only suggested by Raunak. Thanks a lot Raunak for planning such an amazing trip. I will definitely be booking all my future trips from Wanderbird Holidays team and will also refer you to my friends and colleagues.
Subramanian's 8 days trip to MelbourneRaunak from wanderbird had arranged every single trip in a very planned manner, which helped to get most out of this trip. Would recommend to everyone to use his services. Not only just the travel arrangements, but he helps you plan the trip from your personal basis and provides inputs on what to expect and how to go about things. Hamilton Island was the best part of our trip. It was suggested by Raunak and we are glad we chose to see the Great Barrier Reef from there and not Cairns or Gold Coast.
