by Tony Haslam

Melbourne is one of the most beautiful places in Australia, and when it comes to travelling this spectacular city, there are certainly lots of activities to enjoy. Not only is there a number of free tourist attractions, but the culture of the city itself is a joy to behold – in 2012 it was named the world’s most liveable city!

With a population of just over 4 million, Melbourne was founded in 1835, and remains one of the world’s popular metropolises. Often referred to as the ‘Garden City’, Melbourne is the cultural capital of Australia, and also a major centre of contemporary Australian music.

Second only to Sydney, Melbourne is an enormous city, with parks and dynamic buildings dominating the land. Whether you’re an international, local or interstate visitor, Melbourne has an abundance of sightseeing opportunities, so if you’re thinking about travelling down under, take a look at some of the best places to go!

If you’ve got young children, then ArtPlay will keep them entertained for hours! From painting to drawing, sand castles to rock climbing, your kids will be able to explore and create to their hearts content. It’s best to book your day at ArtPlay well in advanced, as places get snapped up pretty quickly.

Not only does Flight Experience put you in the hot seat, but the program is also based on one of the most popular and successful aircraft – the 737-800. Placing you in a fully-enclosed simulator, the team at Flight Experience Australia will train you up to start up, take off and land your very own plane. They’ll also introduce you to a number of procedures that the pilot and co-pilots have to adhere to, so make sure you book your place on this amazing activity!
