Popular Tourist Attractions
Melbourne Cricket Ground - The sporting capital of Australia houses the Melbourne Cricket Ground, a state of the art stadium that is worth a visit. Often described as the beating heart of the city, Melbourne cricket ground is nearly as old as the city itself. Established in 1853, the ground was established less than 20 years after the birth of Melbourne. Travelers can take a tour of this historical stadium or watch a game of Cricket or Australian Rules football. Thought to be the birth place of test cricket, tourists can still enjoy a tour of Melbourne Cricket Ground on non-match days.
National Gallery of Victoria - Located at St Kilda road, National Gallery of Victoria is spellbinding not just in the art displayed but also the architecture and decorative furniture used alongside the exhibits. The city’s artsy vibe is amplified inside this art gallery as visitors often feel lost in the amazing exhibitions. When in NGV, do not forget to lie down in the Great Hall and admire the exemplary stained glass ceiling. The Australian art section of NGV is housed in the Ian Potter Center and contains aborigine work as well as the works of famous Australian artists.
Melbourne Zoo - A Zoo that doesn’t treat its animals like a zoo, Melbourne Zoo is one of the most animal loving and eco-friendly locations on the planet. The oldest zoo in Australia, it recently became the first carbon neutral zoo and tries its best to simulate the animals’ natural habitats. It even allows its inhabitant animals to hide in its respective shelters, if that’s what they want to do. We hear the Gorilla is extremely shy! What makes this place a lot more attractive is that it houses the cutest living thing on the planet (yes, cuter than golden retriever pups!) - The Koala. So, hop on a low-cost flight to Melbourne and see the cutest animal on the planet up close.
Federation Square - What village squares used to be for villagers in medieval times, Federation Square is for Melburnians. Filled with a plethora of activities and people, you can hear just about every major language in the world being spoken around you. For tourists and locals alike, Federation Square is etched in the city pages as a place for social gatherings and cultural assimilation. The square hosts performances, events, exhibitions, and tours of the city regularly. Federation square also houses several prominent art galleries as well as cafés. It is truly hard to imagine Melbourne without Federation Square.
St Kilda - To be honest, St Kilda deserves a write-up of its own. St Kilda is a sea lover’s wish come true. Vast sandy beaches, panoramic views of the sky, serene water, and a multitude of activities and water sports around - St Kilda will steal your heart. Tired after a whole day of sports, you can jump into the water to let off some steam or just chug beer at one of the niche restaurants around.
