With varied experiences in this vibrant city no matter what time of year, the Victorian capital really puts on a show. Wander around the green, leafy parks or head to energising, engaging locations like Lego Learning Centre and Scienceworks—all within touching distance of the CBD. If you time your trip right, the entire family can chuck on the scarf and beanie of your favourite footy team and cheer all day at a game.
When it comes to where to stay in Melbourne, booking accommodation in the CBD gets you near easy and efficient public transport links for visiting the Melbourne Zoo, Federation Square or the cricket ground. Enjoy rooftop pools with panoramic views of the city, in-room MP3 players for fun family nights in, and TVs with all the kids’ favourite channels. And for parents? Reliable hotel childcare services let you duck out for a romantic night alone in the Paris of the South.
