Highlights of Melbourne
If you're visiting Melbourne, these are things you won't want to miss:
Arcades - Melbourne
has arguably the best arcades of any city in Australia, with a
mix of quaint shops in historic buildings and small cafes in dimly
lit laneways. A walk through the Block Arcade, in particular is
Southbank - This development beside the Yarra River
has quickly become the main focal point for the city area. Here
there are up market restaurants, food courts, interesting shops
and a fabulous promenade along the river bank.
Crown Entertainment Complex - Originally renowned for being the biggest
casino in the Southern Hemisphere, the Crown complex is now regarded
as a major entertainment centre.
St Kilda - Another must for visitors to Melbourne.
This elderly bayside suburb has it all - history, fantastic beachside
setting, sidewalk cafes, a street famous for its cake shops and
one of the best kept secrets in Melbourne - the fabulous St Kilda
Gardens - Melbourne
has some of the finest gardens of any city in the world, many
of them within a kilometre of the CBD. A morning in the Royal
Botanic Gardens is one of the great treats of visiting this city.
The Bay - Port
Phillip Bay is big and one of its attractions is driving along
the road that skirts around its south-eastern shores. A bicycle
path runs from South melbourne, near the city, to Mordialloc,
on the southern peninsula.
