Laneways, coffee, galleries, boutiques… Australia’s shopping and sporting capital offers an eclectic array of experiences. An exciting and ever-changing metropolis, every visit is a chance to discover something new with plenty of sophisticated charm and surprises to enjoy.
MELBOURNE FOOD & WINE DISCOVERY
Australia’s coffee capital, multicultural Melbourne does food and wine with chic international style. Tour the city’s iconic cultural and sporting sights, then enjoy a gourmet dinner as you circumnavigate downtown Melbourne on the ruby-red Colonial Tramcar Restaurant. Beyond the city, ride the famous Puffing Billy steam train through the chardonnay vines of the Yarra Valley, Australia’s premiere cool-climate wine region.
CITY & HISTORY
Melbourne architecture is cutting-edge, but wonderfully preserved reminders of the past are everywhere. Explore character-filled laneways and arcades and tour the city’s key historic sights: the Melbourne Cricket Ground has as many stories to tell as Parliament House and the Shrine of Remembrance. See the city from the Yarra River on a boat tour, and catch ‘gold fever’ at nearby Ballarat, the hub of Australia’s 1850s gold rush.
EUREKA 89 & EUREKA SKYDECK MELBOURNE
Every great city has its icon, its point of recognition, the gem in its urban skyline.
For Melbourne, it’s the Eureka Tower, a 297 metre gold plated skyscraper by the Yarra River in the heart of the Southbank precinct.
Located on the top floors, Eureka 89 and Eureka Skydeck offer unparalleled views across metropolitan Melbourne, both with their own truly memorable and unique experiences.
Eureka Skydeck is Melbourne’s greatest viewpoint, and one of the most stunning observation decks in the world. Eureka 89 offers a degustation dining experience with glorious views through floor to ceiling windows.
