    This floating museum was a brilliant place to bring our scout troop. The on board museum and the volunteers that ran the tour were great and very engaging. Would recommend.  more »

    This Corvette has been restored entirely by volunteers, donations and the small $6 adults and $3 kids entry fee. Not great if you are disabled as you have to climb the ladders between the levels. Set ...  more »

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
