Melbourne and Victoria

With its historic buildings, tree lined boulevards fine parks and gardens, Melbourne is very much a ‘grand’ city, but the café and beach culture and laid back Aussie lifestyle are never far away. There’s plenty to see and do, or head out of the city to discover the beautiful National Parks, country towns and fabulous coastal scenery of Victoria.

Our Melbourne hotels and apartments are superbly located within the city or at St Kilda’s beach, a short tram ride away.

About Melbourne and Victoria

Australia’s second largest city has a delightful Victorian feel, with grand, elegant buildings, fine parks and gardens and a historic tram system that’s been the mainstay of city transport for 100 years. 

Melbourne is a cultured and cosmopolitan city, with excellent museums and galleries and world class theatre. There’s a thriving street café scene, superb restaurants and great shopping. Along the Yarra River, the lively Southbank arts and entertainment area makes an ideal place to dine in the evening.

You’ll find plenty to do during the day as well, explore the Botanical Gardens, chill out in Federation Square or visit Captain Cooks Cottage, rebuilt in nearby Fitzroy Gardens. Be sure to visit colourful Queen Victoria Market, and for soap fans, there’s even a ‘Neighbours’ tour.

One tram ride you must take is the 15 minute journey to St Kilda, Melbourne’s beach suburb. Here you can enjoy a dip in Port Phillip Bay, a ride at Luna Fun Park or your choice of coffee along Fitzroy Street, known locally as the ‘cappuccino strip’.

Melbourne’s impressive stadiums also host many of the country’s major sporting events, including the Grand Prix and Australian Open tennis. Accommodation can be limited at these times, so it’s important to book early. 

Away from the city, Victoria is the perfect touring destination, with spectacular mountain and coastal scenery, fertile plains and well kept National Parks. Look out for relics of the great Gold Rush that doubled the population of the state in the late 1800's. The town of Ballarat has an excellent living museum where you can still pan for gold. 

The Yarra Valley vineyards produce some of Australia’s best wine, whilst further south are the fine sandy beaches of the Mornington Peninsula. Nearby Phillip Island is home to thousands of native fur seals, koalas and the enchanting Fairy Penguins that march up the beach each night to nest in the sand dunes.
