Melbourne

Crazy for coffee, fanatical about football and alive with art – everything you have heard about Melbourne is true. With stunning gold rush era architecture, an energetic food and wine scene and characterful suburbs, it’s easy to see why this city wins over so many travellers. Whether you are discovering a secret bar down one of the city’s famous alleyways or joining 100 000 spectators to cheer on an AFL game at the MCG, Melbourne offers thousands of options for fun and entertainment.

But don’t make the mistake of falling in love with Melbourne and never venturing beyond the city. There are plenty of day trips to destinations around Victoria that will impress you just as much as the vibrant capital. From the incredible coastline of the Great Ocean Road to the world class wine region of Yarra Valley, some of Australia’s most amazing country regions are just on Melbourne’s doorstep.

Best Melbourne Tours & Day Trips

No trip to Melbourne is complete with visiting the Great Ocean Road and Phillip Island to see two of Victoria’s icons – the Twelve Apostles and the Penguin Parade. Enophiles should pry themselves away from Melbourne’s distinguished restaurants to sample the top drops of Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula on wine tours from the city. For a Melbourne day tour off the beaten track, head to the Grampians for some of the most spectacular scenery in Victoria.

Visitors with younger kids in tow can entertain them on a day trip to Sovereign Hill in Ballarat or Puffing Billy in the Dandenong Ranges. Ski bunnies will enjoy the chance to hit the slopes on a day trip to Mount Buller and experience the snow at Victoria’s premier ski resort.
