Feel like shopping or sampling a local restaurant? It’s a long way to walk, but you can drive or catch a tram down Burke Road. Down the Camberwell end of the street is Camberwell Shopping Centre, a collection of more than 400 shops spread across Burke Road and The Junction.
At 260 hectares, Yarra Bend Park is the biggest area of natural bushland left in Melbourne. The city’s famous Yarra River flows through it and the views include woodlands, parklands, river and sometimes the Dandenongs. If you feel like teeing off, Yarra Bend Golf Course is part of the park too! Pay a visit and you’ll see why this tranquil piece of nature attracts about 1.5 million visitors a year. But that’s not the only spot of lush greenery in Kew. Let your dog (and your family) off the leash at Victoria Park, which has a sports ground, play equipment and BBQ facilities perfect for a family sausage sizzle at dusk.
Of course, the city of Melbourne hardly needs any introduction. From its laneways to its libraries, its art galleries to its parks, Victoria’s capital is a liveable city that offers plenty of day and night activities. The shopping is limitless, from Burke Street Mall to the Queen Victoria Market. The dining and nightlife both have something for everyone, and the city is filled with popular attractions like the Princess Theatre, the MCG, Luna Park, the Melbourne Museum and Royal Botanic Gardens.
