Melbourne is set around the shores of Port Phillip Bay. The city itself, laid out in a large rectangle and boasting a lively and cosmopolitan pulse, sits on the northern banks of the Yarra River, about five kilometres from the bay.



Melbourne is a city with something for everyone. From chic fashion stores to buzzing laneway cafes and trendy bars, botanic gardens to sports stadiums, elegant Victorian-era streetscapes to Manhattan-style skyscrapers, film and food festivals to galleries and opulent theatres, Melbourne has an activity and attraction that will interest you.


Where else can you enjoy Australia’s best eating and drinking? Explore historic arcades and laneways lined with cafes and boutiques? Or see sporting spectaculars, art exhibitions and performing arts productions throughout the year? Melbourne, that’s where.


Some features:

Federation Square
 
Highlights

  • Visitor Information Centre
  • Striking architecture
  • Restaurants and bars
  • Dynamic arts attractions.
Conceived as a tribute to the first 100 years of Australian nationhood,  Federation Square opened on 26 October 2002. Standing in the heart of central Melbourne and linking the city centre with the Yarra River, Federation Square fuses art, architecture, hospitality and promenading into a distinct and striking public space. Visitors can stroll around Federation Square's expansive desert-toned plaza, which affords commanding views of Melbourne's riverside and cityscape, or enjoy food and wine at one of the 20 captivating restaurants, cafes and bars interspersed throughout the square.

Visitors can also take in a comprehensive collection of Australian art at the Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, or walk next door to see the state-of-the-art Australian Centre for the Moving Image. Federation Square is also home to the Melbourne Visitor Centre - a one-stop shop for visitors to learn all there is to see and do in Melbourne and Victoria.

Adjacent to Federation Square and en route to Melbourne’s sports precinct is Birrarung Marr, the first major park to be developed in central Melbourne since the city was originally laid out over a century ago.


How to get there
By train: Flinders Street Station, part of the city loop metropolitan train service, is opposite the square.
By tram: Take any tram along Swanston and Flinders street



Shopping in Melbourne


Melbourne and shopping go together like zip-up boots and rainy days or sling-back shoes and summer. Fashion, of course, is part of the appeal but there’s plenty more besides. The question isn’t what can you buy but what can’t you buy, and while choice is a big attraction, the joy of shopping in the city is also about atmosphere. The web of narrow streets, beckoning laneways, wide boulevards and lovely old arcades make shopping nothing less than a pleasure.


Melbourne is home to leading fashion houses and has produced some of the country’s top designers, including Bettina Liano, Scanlan and Theodore and Vixen (Georgio Chapman). It’s also renowned as a bargain hunter’s paradise with factory outlets offering the best brands at hugely discounted prices. For more eclectic tastes and smaller budgets, Melbourne’s multitude of markets offer an extensive array of new and pre-loved shoes clothes and accessories – try the Chapel Street Bazaar and the Camberwell and Queen Victoria markets.



Theatre and performing arts in Melbourne
 

Dozens of theatrical productions are staged each week in Melbourne, ranging from mainstream musicals to experimental works.

Make sure you secure one of the city's hottest tickets as the Regent Theatre gets set to farewell the Melbourne season of The Lion King, one of the largest musical theatre productions ever to be staged in Australia.




Melbourne Zoo


Opened in 1862, Melbourne Zoo is the oldest in Australia. More than 350 animal species from around the world are on display in the zoo’s attractive enclosures and botanical settings.


Visitors can wander through an African and Asian rainforest displaying gorillas, pygmy hippopotamus, mandrills, tigers and otters, or see an extensive collection of Australian animals including koalas, kangaroos, wombats and platypus. Other highlights include the steamy Butterfly House (where hundreds of Australian butterflies alight upon visitors), the Wonderful New World of Bugs, the Trail of the Elephants and regular meet-the-keeper opportunities throughout the day. You can get close to life-size animals, or at least several touch and feel statues that let you feel the size and shape of a number of animals, including the Australian platypus.


During the summer months, the zoo stays open until 9.30pm for ‘Zoo Twilights’, when live music, concerts, meals and longer animal displays take place.


Guided tours are available daily between 10am and 3pm, and are operated by Friends of the Zoo volunteer guides, who are extensively trained and qualified to answer your questions.




Melbourne Museum


The modernist Melbourne Museum is the largest museum complex in the southern hemisphere. Spread over six huge levels, half of which are below ground level, the museum draws on the latest technology to give an insight into Australia’s flora, fauna and culture.


Highlights include the Science and Life Gallery, which explores areas such as digital technology, biodiversity and geology, and how they have changed our perceptions of the natural world; Bunjilaka, a living cultural centre for the Koori community of south-eastern Australia; and the Australia Gallery, focusing on the vibrant history of Melbourne and Victoria – from Australia’s iconic racehorse Phar Lap to the kitchen set from the Neighbours TV show. Also of interest is the Evolution Gallery, which features life-size dinosaur skeletons and looks at how life changes over time, the Children’s Museum, where the brightly coloured cube-shaped ‘Big Box’ provides a fun and stimulating environment for children from three to eight years old, and ICE, Australia’s only interactive arcade-like cinema game.


One of the museum’s most striking exhibits is the Forest Gallery, a living interpretation of Victoria’s tall temperate forests, which features around 80,00 plants from more than 120 different species. It’s also home to more than 20 different vertebrate species, including snakes, birds, fish, frogs and hundreds of different insects.


Adjoining the museum is IMAX Theatre, which boasts the world’s largest movie screen – two levels high and featuring state-of-the-art visual technology, along with surround sound. A variety of 2D and 3D films are projected here each day.
