Known as Australia’s coffee capital, Melbourne brims with a sophisticated urban vibe with sports, culture, arts and dining reigning supreme here. The city offers a wide variety of sightseeing options for tourists, but Melbourne tourism is extremely diverse and will ensure that you have enriching experiences throughout your stay.

A day trip to Yarra valley, Victoria’s wine region, will bring an immeasurable sense of tranquillity as you take in the rolling hills, lush greenery and the gently undulating vineyards all around you. Every weekend, the cellars of some of the most famous wineries in the region open up to the public and some of highly recommended dining destinations come from here.

Melbourne tourism also brings quaint shopping laneways such as Degraves Street where you will feel a definite Parisian vibe with plenty of shopping and cafés. The laneways are great places to buy handmade jewellery or simply to browse through the quirky shops or nibble on some of the delicious treats available along the way.

Melbourne’s National Gallery of Victoria is the oldest gallery in the country. With several exciting international and local exhibition and events, this gallery houses more than 70,000 works which will surely leave you spellbound. Melbourne’s theatre scene is also very active and if you’re lucky, you can catch a classic play at the Astor.

Melbourne’s events calendar is also jampacked with a variety of events such as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival which takes place in March/April every year or the AFL at Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Melbourne’s appeal lies not just in its sophisticated environs but also in the old-world charm of the smaller laneways. The bustling city known for being the second-most populous city in Australia certainly brings a smile to every face, be they local or tourists.
