During our Australian trip we had the pleasure to stop in Melbourne 3 times ( as an entry to Aussie, between Tasmania and Great Ocean Road, at the end). Even with our efficiency we didn’t manage to visit everything (next time 🙂 ).
First time our hotel was located outside of the city. To get to the CC we had to take a train about 30 minutes. After arrival first thing which we have done was exploring the famous Botanical Gardens. The gardens have a wide variety of plants with special sections such as the Australian Forest Walk, the Tropical Glasshouse and the Arid Garden.
That’s one of my favorites places in Melbourne. This promenade is perfect to relax after a busy day in town. Sitting on a balcony with a riverside view, you can have dinner at one of the many restaurants or a quick drink.
St Kilda and Brighton beach
We were very lucky with weather (39 degrees in March). After whole day in the city we needed some refreshment. I heard a lot about St Kilda and Brighton beach so the choice was easy- Let’s go there. Those are perfect places to cool down after a busy day in the city.
Brighton beach is well known from colorful beach houses where many tourists come to make a photoshoot.
