  • Beautiful building and wonderful collections for this Australian arts museum. It is conquered from the entrance, with this hall to beautiful proportions in which are exposed to the monumental contemporary sculptures. Free access, but a smiling hostess explains the Organization of the Museum and the location of the elevator, escalator and stairs. Exciting discovery of varied works - photos, paintings, sculptures, furniture - display in clear rooms with sitting areas furnished of beautiful leather sofas. The most exciting section is certainly one that is dedicated to Aboriginal art, with touching video showing Tiger Palpaja painting as he comments on his work. Beautiful paintings of Paddy Bedford and Shorty Lungkata Tjungurarrayi, among others.

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.
