Melbourne offers an array of entertainment and luxury accommodation
Melburnians value three things above all else: good coffee, good food and good football. And in a city where the barista is king and the bright lights of the MCG stadium burn ever brightly, visitors can expect an eclectic mix of culture and sport to keep them thoroughly entertained.
With easy to navigate tree-lined avenues, as well as Melbourne’s famous trams and the local down-to-earth charm, it’s little wonder the nation's second largest city is continually ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities. It’s also one of Australia’s most loved weekend destinations, especially when the sporting calendar is full. Kicking off the year in style, the Australia Open takes hold of the city every January and tennis fever can be felt far and wide. This is followed by the start of the AFL season in March; choose your team before visiting, it will impress the locals. Tickets to weekend matches are usually available at the stadiums, unless it’s a grudge match and then you’ll have to retire to one of the many heritage pubs dotted around the city to watch it on the small screen. Not to be outdone by the sporting world, the city’s art galleries, museums and theatres take centre stage throughout the year with world-class exhibitions, artists and musicians.
Hidden restaurants and tiny gin bars lie tucked away behind unmarked doors, down alleyways and in warehouses; half the fun is finding them. And the Victorian capital is a hub for fashionistas as well, with Melbourne Fashion Week and Melbourne Fashion festival on every year. It is an equally charming place for visitors who are wooed by its European café culture, colonial architecture and vibrant street scene.
Spoilt for choice, there’s a diverse range of accommodation to suit all travellers with Melbourne's swathe of boutique hotels and chic apartments allowing visitors to stay among the action while still escaping from the hustle and bustle.
