Posted by Jeremy Storer on February 22, 2013

Here are my top 5 tourist attractions in Melbourne.

1) Visit the lane ways in the Melbourne central business district

Melbourne is know for its diverse and spectacular cuisine. Through the lane ways you will find some of the most spectacular restaurants, cafes and shops.

2) Enjoy a meal at South Bank overlooking the Yarra

Overlooking the Yarra from South Bank on a sunny day is a perfect way to spend your day. The view back across the river to Flinders Street Station, Federation Square and many of the skyscrapers of Melbourne is stunning. There are many restaurants of all sorts of cuisines lining the banks of the Yarra at South Bank. Alternatively, head to St Kilda to the abundant restaurants there.

3) Check out the Eureka Skydeck

At almost 300 meters the Eureka Skydeck is the highest public platform in the Southern Hemisphere. Located in South Bank, it’s a great place to see the views from.

4) Visit the Melbourne Aquarium

The Melbourne Aquarium is one of Melbourne’s start attractions. A highlight is the 360 oceanarium which is the home to many a sea creature including sharks.

5) Learn about the Indigenous Culture

A popular thing to do is check out the Aboriginal Heritage Walk at the Royal Botanical Gardens. The guides will teach you about Aboriginal history and the botanical gardens.
