Melbourne – Things to do

Melbourne Attractions

Phillip Island Nature Park

Melbourne is a nature lover’s dream come true, and there are ample opportunities to get up close and personal with local wildlife. A trip to Phillip Island Nature Park will see you penguin watching along the pale sandy shores. Feed kangaroos and wallabies from the palm of your hand, and observe koalas at tree level from the raised board walk. The park provides a natural home environment for more than 30 other species of animals.

Great Ocean Road, Victoria

Drive the Great Ocean Road

No holiday to Melbourne is complete without a Great Ocean Road trip. With Hayes and Jarvis, you can enjoy a unique experience like none other. Head down Gibson steps at low tide (weather permitting) and you will find yourself in the perfect spot for unrivalled views of the twelve apostles. Stop off at the most southern point of the trail to admire the Cape Otway light station, for some spectacular sunset views.

Margaret River vineyard

Yarra Valley Visit

Less than an hours’ drive from the city, you will find yourself in wine country. Yarra Valley hosts over 460 vineyards and winemakers, and 270 restaurants, making this a fantastic trip for gourmet foodies as well as wine lovers. Deliciously crisp mornings are a treat for hikers and cyclists who can enjoy the sun rising over the valley through the fog from one of the many vantage points.
