Flights to Melbourne

Ask anyone to name their favourite city in Australia, and it’s likely that they’ll choose from the two largest: Sydney and Melbourne. There’s a friendly rivalry between the two, and while Sydney might be the biggest, Victoria’s state capital has plenty to offer travellers too.

For one thing, it’s got one of the most exciting arts and culture scenes in Australia. In many ways, it’s also the country’s cultural capital, boasting institutions such as the National Gallery of Victoria, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and sporting events like the Australian Open tennis tournament. And that’s without mentioning the Australian Football League (AFL) team, Melbourne FC. The fans are some of the most passionate you’ll ever cheer with, so be sure to try and catch a game.

Melbourne is home to a bustling street art scene, a vibrant community of filmmakers (and film lovers), plus a strong economy that keeps the money flowing and the restaurants and nightlife venues full of happy patrons. The city’s chefs are constantly experimenting; Melbourne's location between East and West, Old World and New World allows them the flexibility to imagine dishes you won't find elsewhere. Dining in Melbourne can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be, and that's all part of the fun. Whether you're willing to try anything on your plate or happy to stick to the basics, there’s a restaurant or five for you.

There’s a thriving cafe culture too – in fact, the city is home to some of the best cafes in the city. Ask the locals – they’ll definitely have strong opinions about where to go for your morning cup. In the afternoon, head for the coast; Melbourne has some brilliant beaches, from rugged Bushrangers Bay to family-friendly Mothers Beach.

The hotel options in Melbourne are as endless as the views in the Aussie outback. The inner city has recently experienced a revitalisation as hotels invade the central business district that's also experiencing a population boom. If you're after something completely different, check out Neds Gully Campground for a true Outback experience.

All things considered, the city has enough luxury hotels, exciting attractions and hidden gems to keep the most enthusiastic visitors entertained. And it’s not just tourists who love Melbourne – in fact, you might find that a short stay turns into something much longer. It routinely ranks among the most liveable cities in the world; no wonder over four million people currently call it home.

What to do in Melbourne

Visit the Lightning Ridge Opal Mines

Diamonds are so last century. Opals are the new hot gem, and Lightning Ridge has a wealth of them in store at all times. They come from nearby mines, meaning you're supporting the local economy while getting your loved one (or yourself) an excellent gift.

Take a drive to the 12 Apostles

We'd all like to feel like we’re in a postcard now and again, and the 12 Apostles in the Southern Ocean is the best place in Melbourne for doing so. It's a gorgeous 275km drive south, passing through some of Australia's wonderful natural terrain. Try to time your arrival for either dawn or dusk.

See the views from the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel

Take the 30-minute enclosed ride on the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel for the best perspective of the city, and with up to 20 of your closest friends. You'll be able to view sites up to 40km away, including Port Phillip Bay, Mount Macedon, and the Dandenong Ranges. All you have to do is stand still and keep your eyes open.

Where to eat in Melbourne

Flower Drum Restaurant (Cantonese)

This is fine dining Cantonese cuisine in the heart of Melbourne. Flower Drum is a fixture in the city's Chinatown, originally serving as an outpost that drew people to the under-used area but which now operates as a focal point in the busy environment.

Vue de Monde (European)

Chef Shannon Bennett's brilliant establishment isn't just one of the best restaurants in the city, it's one of the best in the world. It's the view that adds to the wow factor – you'll be tucking into your dinner from 55 storeys above Melbourne, looking down at the city below.
