Things to do

Home to a thriving arts scene, you won’t be short of a unique culture hit with headline exhibitions at the National Gallery of Victoria or masterpieces at Heide Museum of Modern Art and the best names on the comedy circuit at The Comic’s Lounge. Shop till you drop at the glittering Melbourne Emporium, Chadstone Shopping Centre for big names in international and Australiana designs. For clothing with more vintage bent, there’s no beating Chapel Streets Windsor end, Victoria Market or boutique stores through the laneways surrounding De Graves Street.

If you're partial to easy on-foot exploration, wander through the Royal Botanic Gardens then let your feet take you across the river to the nearby Melbourne Cricket Ground and National Sports Museum. No trip is complete for the sporting enthusiasts who visit Melbourne without entering the hollow turf of the MCG to watch a game of Aussie Rules, the home of Australian Football. Stumble across some of Melbourne’s hidden laneway pubs, hole-in the wall cafes or rooftop bars – it’ a big part of the city's enduring charm.
