Things to do in Melbourne

There’s so much to see and do in Melbourne:

For sports fans: Melbourne is known for its world-class sporting facilities so why not catch a game of AFL football (if travelling during autumn/winter) at the iconic MCG? Rod Laver Arena is also famous for hosting The Australian Open tennis championship each year while AAMI park is another great sports centre. 

For art and theatre lovers: located in St Kilda Road, the NGV is known for bringing world-class art exhibitions to Melbourne. Meanwhile, there are numerous theatres located in the CBD where people can catch a musical.

For families: there’s nothing like a visit to the Melbourne Museum in the CBD or the Planetarium for those who consider themselves stargazers. Fed Square is another fun destination for the entire family.

For foodies: who doesn’t love to eat? Melbourne has earned its reputation as one of the most stunning food destinations in the world. From French restaurants such as Vue De Monde, to the iconic Italian Lygon Street stretch of restaurants, cafes and gelaterias to the more hippy Brunswick/Fitzroy areas, there is some seriously good food to be enjoyed in this city. 

Best time to visit

Ideal times to visit Melbourne depend on what you plan to do. Take note the AFL football season does not run through summer, whereas the cricket season runs all summer long. In terms of weather, Autumn (March through to May) is generally the best time of the year to visit Melbourne – if you’re not keen on cool weather, it’s wise to avoid the cooler months of July and August. Be aware that temperatures can get quite hot and into the forties in summer.
