Outdoor activities in Melbourne

Experience the best of Australia

Trendy, artsy Melbourne is the capital of Victoria, as well as, its business and administrative center. Tourists flock to Melbourne in hoards to experience the warm and inviting atmosphere it is well known for. If you are planning a vacation and looking for hotel apartments, Melbourne will not disappoint; right in the heart of the central business district, you will find Oaks On Collins, a stylish urban oasis, along with a number of other lodging options.

Take to the streets on foot to immerse yourself in the beauty of the urban parks, meticulously kept lawns and charming old buildings including the State Library of Victoria, Flinders Street Station and the Old Treasury Building to name a few. A picnic lunch in the Royal Botanic Gardens is a lovely way to pass a few hours, before strolling along the banks of the Yarra River to admire breathtaking city views across the water. You could sign up for a walking tour to learn something of the city’s history, sample classic Victorian wines or even track down some ghosts! If walking does not suit your mood, why not rent a bicycle? There are several scenic cycling trails and tours to choose from.

Special occasions that call for something truly memorable, could be marked with a sunrise balloon ride that takes you floating over the wine country before you sit down to an indulgent champagne breakfast. The city is also a golfer’s dream destination. All the championship courses have been designed by acclaimed architects including the two Royal Melbourne courses, Kingston Heath, Victoria and several others. If you fancy a day on the beach, Melbourne’s most popular beach is St. Kilda Beach, where you can take a dip in the ocean or mosey along St. Kilda Pier to observe the water lit up in fiery hues at sunset.
