If you are spending your holiday in Melbourne, there are some nice places to see.During the 19th century, gold was discovered in an area that would be Melbourne, and from then on, people from different parts of the globe were lured to this teeming heart of Victoria. Now, the gold is long gone, but Melbourne’s magical attraction lingers on. In case you’re one of those magnetized by its wonders, make sure you’ll never forget the following.
First, be reminded that in Australia, the sun can be very harsh if you are visiting during the summer months around November – March. Melbourne often experiences heat waves so if you don’t like the heat it may be better to visit in winter. The first three months of the year spell the warmest season in Melbourne, so never forget your sunscreen, hats and sunglasses.
Second, Melbourne might be the second largest city in Oz, but never be afraid of getting lost. Once you get into your hotel and into the centre of Melbourne, moving around will be easy, as most attractions are just walking distance apart. Trains, trams or buses are readily available to bring you to where your heart desires. Just keep a Metcard ticket at hand and rest assured of a worry-free journey all over the city. Moreover, why not stretch your legs for some cycling or walking along the city’s heritage trail by the historic YarraRiver? Also, opt to travel around by ferry and experience Melbourne’s water landmarks.

You might wish to meet and greet the majestic Twelve Apostles along the Great Ocean Road. Who are they? It is up to you to discover! When touring around Melbourne it’s good to have accommodation in the city, to save on time, and so you can be amongst all that the cosmopolitan Melbourne lifestyle has to offer.
