During the summer months, there is nothing better than being able to get out and explore everything Melbourne has to offer. Melbourne serviced apartments allow you to have the convenience of a home away from home, and be centrally located to make the most out of your trip.
The most challenging thing when visiting a city is deciding where to go and how to spend your time. With summer well and truly here and so many things on offer, it can be overwhelming when trying to research the top things to see in Melbourne. It is important to do the touristy day trips but also to make sure you take the time to see how Melbournites enjoy the city too.
It felt like winter lasted for such a long time this year, which is why we have been looking forward to the summer months. That is the reason we wanted to put together this list of our top ten things to do in Melbourne this summer.
Visit a winery
Enjoying a day hitting up the wineries in Victoria is an absolute must. Looking out onto the green vineyards and sampling the best wine Victoria has to offer is certainly a day well spent in my eyes.
Have a day at the beach
Although Melbourne beaches aren’t necessarily as good as the ones that Sydney has to offer, the vibes at the beach are certainly not to be missed out on. St Kilda is a great place to have a beer and chill on the beach listening to music.
Picnic in Edinburgh Gardens
A lazy afternoon at Edinburgh Gardens is a fun and vibrant way to spend any sunny day. With hipsters and families galore, people to watch, you won’t get bored.
Watch and relax at the Rooftop cinema
Teaming a icy cold cider with a good film overlooking the city is one way to spend a Thursday night. It’s great for a chilled but engaging evening.
Stroll around the Botanic Gardens
Have a walk around the gardens and take in all the smells and colours. It will be the best garden-themed stroll of your life; it really is an escape.
Enjoy a cocktail at Madame Brussels
With a cocktail menu to die for, and an atmosphere that is like no other, Madame Brussels is a venue that everyone should check out.
Alfresco dining at ‘Naked in the Sky’
‘Naked in the Sky’ is a rooftop bar on top of Naked for Satan, the view is as cool as the trendy cats that frequent this bar.
Cycle around the city checking out the graffiti
Cycling around taking in the artwork sprawled across the city is an easy way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The colourful laneways and creative walls dotted around the city are just astounding.
Take a day trip to the Dandenong Ranges
To truly see the expanse of Melbourne, why not take a short drive out to the Dandenong Ranges. A gentle hike will take you to a viewpoint where you can look down on all of Melbourne.
Go to the markets
With Melbourne being such a great place to enjoy the finest foods, the markets on the weekends are the perfect way to buy high quality produce and give directly back to the local farmers.
Good luck finding the perfect Melbourne adventure for your summer! Happy holidays!
