Holidays To Melbourne

From secret bars down winding laneways, to endless rows of boutique shops, and a serious sporting passion; Melbourne holidays are hard to beat. 
Enjoy the best of this sophisticated hotspot while taking advantage of Melbourne holiday packages—after all, if you're visiting a city renowned for its shopping, restaurants, and entertainment, it can't hurt to save a little extra cash on your flights and hotel.

Things to Do in Melbourne
All Melbourne holidays must start with coffee—it's practically mandatory in a city packed with so many cafes. Downtown is known for its charming laneways filled with cosy coffee spots and trendy shops. Many hotels in Melbourne are in this area, letting you stay in the centre of the action. Architecture buffs will love nearby Flinders Street Station, which is an iconic landmark as well as a major train station. Get a taste of history and check out the museum in the majestic Old Treasury building on Spring Street. To really get around, though, look into reserving a Melbourne car hire so you can see the sights at your own pace. After you've explored downtown, consider hiring a car to check out Melbourne's suburbs, or grab a tram over to the beach at St Kilda, home to Luna Park, the famous fun fair.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
Melbourne shopping caters to all budgets, whether shoestring or sky-high. Downtown's shopping hub is Bourke Street, an open-air mall packed with boutiques, large department stores and high-end chains. Around the corner is Emporium, a luxury shopping centre. If you're keen to explore some of the smaller unique boutiques, travel east to Prahran, one of Melbourne's most affluent areas, which hosts the Chapel Street shopping precinct.

When you're getting hungry, you may start to feel sorry for Melbourne residents - how on earth do they decide where to eat every week? The choice can be overwhelming, with every cuisine imaginable at all price points. Start downtown, where you'll find both Michelin-starred restaurants and vibrant gastropubs. Head south to the Yarra River, the city's bustling waterfront packed with restaurants that are perfectly positioned for people-watching as you eat.

When you're ready to really get the night started, intimate, cosy bars serving artisan cocktails and craft beer can be found in East Brunswick, a suburb just north of the city. Larger dance clubs are located around downtown, but you'll also encounter quieter establishments tucked into the nearby laneways. Melbourne, like many Australian cities, is replete with pubs—you'll find a variety in nearly every suburb, many with leafy beer gardens to enjoy in the warmer weather.
