First-Timers Guide to Melbourne

First-Timers Guide to Melbourne

As Australia’s cultural capital, Melbourne delivers with a cutting-edge restaurant scene, contemporary street art and museums, and historic architecture. If you’re visiting the coffee-shop capital of Australia for the first time, here are a few experiences you can’t miss. 

Admire the Street Art of the CBD

Melbourne is famous throughout Australia for its street-art scene, which spans political statements to kaleidoscopic murals. The best way to discover both well-known and hidden art is on a walking tour that covers Hosier Lane and Caledonian Lane in the Central Business District. 

Cruise the Yarra River

Admire Melbourne’s green spaces and sleek skyscrapers from the water during a cruise on the Yarra River. Choose between a sightseeing cruise with sparkling wine or coffee, or opt to drive the vessel yourself with boat rental. 

Ride the Puffing Billy Steam Train

The route taken by the historic Puffing Billy steam train is considered one of the most scenic in Australia. The open-air train takes you past rugged bushlands and ancient woodlands, and a round-trip ride to the first station can be limited to a few hours, making it ideal for time-pressed travelers. 

See the City from the Eureka Skydeck

Get panoramic views of Melbourne in its entirety from the Eureka Skydeck 88, home to the Edge and Vertigo—two exhilarating experiences not for the fainthearted. The wait time to get in can exceed one hour, so book skip-the-line admission to save time. 

Discover the Great Ocean Road

No trip to the state of Victoria would be complete without a day trip along the Great Ocean Road, home to the world-famous 12 Apostles rock formations. Taking a tour leaves the driving and navigation to someone else and allows you to spend more time admiring the scenery. 

Spend the Day at Brighton Beach

The brightly colored bathing cabanas of Brighton Beach offer some of Melbourne’s best photo ops. Combine your visit with a trip to Phillip Island, home of the Penguin Parade, to maximize your time outside of the city center.
