You may think Bruce Wayne was the original Batman, but before he enlisted Lucius Fox to build him a bad-arse weapons cache, there was John Batman, founder of Melbourne (awesomely, the city was almost named “Batmania”). And yes, there are actual bats here as well, along with loads of other cool stuff. With world-famous markets and underground scenes that will make you wish you lived here, holidays to Melbourne are always worth the trip—or several trips! Whether you’re here for a weekend or plan on sticking around for a while, you’ll never run out of things to see and do in this vibrant metropolis.
The city’s location makes it a super-convenient Australian destination for quick trips—Melbourne to Sydney holiday packages are always bargains, and it’s a short flight from cities like Brisbane, Canberra and Adelaide, too. If you’ve got a long weekend coming up, 3-night Melbourne holiday packages are all the rage, and you’ll have the perfect amount of time to get the main attractions under your belt.
Maybe you’ve got a few more days left in your holiday in Melbourne maybe you’re just the type of traveller who loves to live like a local. And who wouldn’t in this city? Any resident will tell you it’s Australia’s sporting capital, fashion capital, and coffee capital too! (Don’t tell the Sydneysiders.) Try these under-the-radar scenes on for size:
Melbourne holiday activities aren’t limited to the city centre. Drive 15 minutes in any direction and you’re bound to hit something interesting. Put your wheels from that Melbourne car hire to good use and get out there!
