Southbank holidays will begin when your flight lands at Melbourne Airport (MEL), 25km from your luxury hotel in Southbank. Get yourself a South Bank car rental through Wotif and cruise the city streets. If you don’t want to drive around, no problem; this small neighbourhood is very easy to walk around. Don’t feel like using your feet? Rent a bike, take the bus or hail a taxi. Believe us when we say you won’t have a problem exploring.
Once you’ve gotten settled into your hotel, get out and about! Familiarise yourself with the history of the state at the National Gallery of Victoria. Let your eyes feast on the exhibits at the Indigenous Art Collection, get right up close to ancient Apulian red-figure ware in the Antiques Collection, and drool all over Greek and Roman marble sculptures in the Sculpture Collection. And that’s only three of the galleries.
We all know the most important things in Australian culture are cold beer and cricket. At least, that’s the rumour… but we’re willing to bet it’s right. Of course you’re going to pay homage, so make your way to the Melbourne Cricket Ground. “The G”, as it’s locally known, isn’t just home to the Melbourne Cricket Club, but also the National Sports Museum, which has exhibits detailing the history of the popular sport. You can visit a lot of places during holidays to Southbank, but The G needs to be high on your list.
How do you feel about getting the daylights scared of out you? Into it? Then head over to the Eureka Tower—the second-tallest building on the continent!—and make your way up to the Skydeck on the 88th floor. You’ll be able to see from downtown Melbourne all the way to Timbuktu!
And now for the scary part. Check out The Edge, a glass cube that extends 3m out from the building and will make you hope the architect knew what he was doing. You’ll probably even be able to see some of the hotels included in our various Southbank holiday packages.
If you want to catch some rays during your trip, book a Wotif Sunshine Coast holiday package and make the 1764km trek north. Catch perfect waves at First Point Noosa, play with animals at the world-famous Australia Zoo, and take a beautiful bushwalk through Mary Cairncross Reserve.
Well kids, you’ve read it all. You know what to do and where to go. All that’s left to do is to book one of our incredible Souhbank package deals and be on your way. Cheers to you!

Great location modern facilities and staff were really helpful when an early checkin was requested. Only thing was it was not made clear that when i booked a 2 room apartment that is was 2 seperate rooms not a 2 bedroom apartment. But thats not a biggy. Overall great stay.
Amazing location and short walk to public transport and great restaurants along South Bank. We had city views and the rooftop had great seating, a spa and all. Rooms were extremely clean and the kitchen was perfect! Will stay again!
Friendly, helpful staff. Great location, close to everything. Good amenities. Excellent buffet breakfast 😊
The apartment is well located, though it is one of those buildings built for investment not for living. The property smalls of smoke, no doubt from those permanent residents who do smoke. Views are into neighbouring apartments. the apartment could do with a good clean, bathroom and carpets very ...
