Fun things to do in Melbourne

There are so many things to do in Melbourne, but really, that’s an understatement. It’s no secret that this city is the cultural capital of Australia, with Sydney coming up as a close second (shhhh, don’t tell them). There’s a plethora of art galleries and performance spaces scattered all over town, so much so that you’ll never be at a loss at what to do in Melbourne. But you don’t even have to visit a gallery to be totally immersed in art. All you have to do is walk down a side lane to discover an installation piece, stylistic graffitti and beautiful architecture – all of these on your way for a bite to eat! As you can imagine, the places to visit in Melbourne are endless, and don’t all reside in the CBD as most would think. Its neighbouring suburbs are equally adventurous like Fitzroy and St. Kilda.

There are nooks and crannies of goodness everywhere you turn, everywhere you look. And the most fun things to do in Melbourne are the spontaneous activities we find ourselves doing. But for a more planned day filled with exhilarating Melbourne activities, our range of fun things to do will keep you busy all day long! Even the locals find that heartfelt gift for family and friends in popular Melbourne tourist attractions. And why not?! More often locals take for granted all the exciting touristy activities, but they’re designed for everyone to enjoy themselves and take home some excellent memories, no matter where you normally reside. Take for example a RedBalloon helicopter ride? What better way to celebrate a loved one’s birthday or to propose to your partner than high above, overseeing the incredible Melbourne city.
