In a city that's a commercial and cultural hub of Victoria, things to do in Melbourne include many options for visitors of all ages, tastes, and budgets. Nature and animal lovers can admire plants and animals exhibited at Royal Botanic Gardens and Melbourne Zoo. Boasting a collection ranging from Aboriginal to contemporary art, National Gallery of Victoria attracts both art and history buffs. To experience the city from above, go up to the top of Eureka Skydeck 88, the town's highest vantage point. On top of all that, you can always take a walk down the cobbled laneways at the city center, treating yourself to a cup of coffee or a bit of shopping.

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.
