Start the Melbourne city day tour from the City Centre, which is the shopping capital of Australia – all the leading brands and products can be found here. Unfortunately, there is no shopping break here, but you’ll definitely know where to come back to!
Melbourne also takes pride in its sporting heritage and is rightly known as the sporting capital of the country with stadiums for football, cricket, tennis and even motorsport with an F1 spec track. You definitely don’t need to be a sports-nut to appreciate this rich love and passion the city has for sports!
You pass the Parliament House next, an imposing structure dating back to the 19th century and a fine example of period architecture. Remember to take photographs after of this majestic structure, that will help you revisit the time you were here. The coach moves to a well-loved icon of the city, the Queen Victoria Market, one of the largest open-air markets in the world that has been around since the 19th century.
Head to Fitzroy Gardens next for a walk in the park, strolling the beautiful gardens spread over 26 hectares. Visit the Conservatory for the incredible floral display and also peek into the past at the quaint Tudor Village. Cook’s Cottage is also nearby, though you have to pay an entry to explore the cottage. The original home of Captain James Cook’s parents, it’s another period landmark from the 1700s that has maintained its originality, in terms of decor and surroundings.
End the tour at the Shrine of Remembrance, which honours the men and women of Australia, who served in World War I. Paying your respects at Melbourne’s most recognisable landmark, it is a fitting end to the day!
