    Tram for overview, beautiful site with a lovely variety of flora and fauna. Gentle slopes and paved paths make for a perfect city escape in a city with beautiful parks and waterways.

    Amazing tram driver. It’s free!!! We were travelling in Melbourne on our mini vacation. It’s an incredible experience and free tram with young children is cherry on top

    A fantastic experience! We visited the MCG and toured the ground with our excellent guide Graeme. Graeme was helpful, knowledgable and enthusiastic about the MCG and found we learnt a lot about the grounds history. The ticket was reasonably priced with entry to the sports museum included which was great for young children. We fully enjoyed our time at the MCG

    This was by far the best war memorial we've visited in Australia and New Zealand. It is well laid out and filled with stories of men and women from Victoria and other parts of Australia and hundred of artifacts supporting or explaining these stories. There are a lot of audio-visual presentations in the various hallways and display areas. The displays are well lit and easy to ready. The staff is very helpful and friendly. There are ample number of clean bathrooms and a nice gift shop. The view from the balcony gives a nice overview of the very large property as well as the Melbourne skyline. We spent 3 hours there and enjoyed every bit of it.

    I walked to this lovely bazaar from my hotel in the central business district of Melbourne. This is a vast collection of tiny shops, selling everything from Australian leather goods to iPhone accessories. I couldn’t resist buying several things here - a leather belt, quite unique greeting cards, and an old-fashioned telescope. There are also a large fresh produce market as well as restaurants (where I had lunch after some strenuous shopping). A lot of fun, just like Khan Khalili Market in Cairo - you never know what you’ll stumble upon. Don’t miss it if you have a couple of hours to spare.

    I had only one hour to visit this famous arts museum and decided to visit their international gallery (on the south side of the Yarra River), which was having a triennial exhibition of new works from around the world. It was a dazzling exhibition and made me want to come back again. Especially to see their copy of “The Great Wave off Kanazawa”.
