Things to do
Parkville is home to one of Melbourne's major attractions – the Melbourne Zoo. Sitting in the lovely Royal Park, the zoo is home to a large number of unique animals. It is fascinating to see the different species playing, eating, and even sleeping! The zoo is a huge hit with people of all ages, but is especially loved by kids of all ages! Sports fans can see where the athlete's village was situated during the 2006 Commonwealth Games, and the nearby Royal Park Golf Course is perfect for a leisurely round or two. The University of Melbourne is located in Parkville, giving the area a great vibe and exciting energy. There are plenty of places to eat and drink, with a good diversity of cuisine on offer. The student population helps to keep prices relatively low, which is an added bonus for those on a budget.
Enjoy a boat trip along the Yarra, visit the many galleries and museums of Melbourne, and see iconic sights such as Flinders Street Station, the Eureka Tower, Federation Square, the Old Melbourne Jail, the Parliament House, and the trendy Docklands. Make sure you check out Queen Victoria Market if you are on bargain hunt!
