Best Time To Visit: Melbourne is a year-round destination, though the prime cruising season is October to April.
Key Cruising Areas: As well as its own unique charms, Melbourne is well-placed for a cruise of the southern Australian ports including Adelaide and Sydney, and the island of Tasmania. For a longer sail, the east coast offers many interesting options including the Great Barrier Reef at the north.
Don’t Miss: The Eureka Skydeck is a thrilling, unique way to view the city. Sitting in a glass box projecting from the 88th floor of the skyscraper will test the strongest of nerves! However, the 360° view of the city from the highest vantage point in the Southern Hemisphere is an absolute must.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: The dining scene of Melbourne is world-renowned. Whether you fancy brunch at a rustic café, a stylish dinner with a view from the top of a skyscraper, or a trendy lunch in a rooftop bar, you will find it in Melbourne. The only difficulty will be deciding which of the hundreds of restaurants to try! A good place to start is the beautiful setting of Vue de Monde at the top of the Rialto. Stunning city views, delectable food and perfectly matched wine promise a wonderful fine dining experience.
