Hosier Lane

If you’re an art enthusiast, then it would be a good idea to check out the works of Hosier Lane’s street artists. The first thought that would probably come to your mind as you set eyes on each artwork is that “it’s beautiful”—maybe saying it like the hypnotized people in the movie Bird Box. The colorful walls are photo-worthy, and admiring them will definitely brighten your day.

Yarra River

Sometimes, taking a walk can be the solution to boredom. However, taking a walk along the Yarra riverside gives you more than just excitement. Take it all in as you move along its sides, and watch it glistening as the sun rays touch its surface. You’ll also enjoy looking at the greenery surrounding it and the faraway buildings.

If you get there early, you’ll be able to get an idea of a typical Melbournian’s morning. That time of the day features people jogging, cycling, boating, or taking their dogs for walks. Tourists have the option of booking a guided tour with Yarra River Cruises.

Eureka Tower

This tower has a view special kind of view to offer you. It’s like a special on a fine dining restaurant’s evening menu. When you get to the 88th floor of the Eureka Tower—the tallest in the city—an awesome wide view of the city is what you’ll get. The view is better than what photographs will show you.

It’s best to get there some minutes before sunset, so that you can catch a day and night view. It’s really something to see the well-lit city buildings at night from a vantage position.

A far better view is afforded by “The Edge” at Eureka Skydeck. Of course, this is for those who aren’t afraid of heights. The Edge is made of glass in the shape of a cube. The walls, ceiling, and floor are also made of glass. You’ll be about 300 meters from the ground while inside it.

The Royal Botanic Gardens

Are you looking for tranquility somewhere in the city? Then the Royal Botanic Garden might just suit your needs. You can have a picnic with loved ones at this venue or just take a quiet stroll around. It can be the perfect place for a solo tourist too who just wants to have a place to think or admire the well-kept gardens. This site features numerous plant collections, Ornamental Lake, Shrine of Remembrance, and so on.

Pick Melbourne as the destination for your next tourist adventure, and you won’t regret it. It’s a wonderful city with a heart. We recommend not forgetting to go to the 88th of floor  of the Eureka Tower to give the love for this city a chance—by taking in that amazing view—of course.
