Trendy Melbourne is an absolute ‘must-see’ on your tailormade Inspiring Travel Company Australia tour, with so much to experience both in the city and beyond its bounds.
This attractive city boasts a stunning skyline, set on the banks of the Yarra River and bursting with trendy suburbs like the famous St Kilda with its Acland Street Cake Shops, bohemian Fitzroy, Chapel Street and South Yarra.
Exploring on foot is a great way to see the architecture and pop down the secret side streets to visit one-off boutiques. But when your feet grow weary, you can always jump on the tram, perhaps to South Melbourne Market for some scrummy dim sum.
Don’t miss the new development at Federation Square and Southbank during your exploration of Melbourne, as well as the lush Royal Botanic Gardens and Queen Victoria market. If you’re lucky enough to be visiting during a sporting season, we can arrange tickets through our sister company to the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Australian Grand Prix or Melbourne Cup horse race.
Then there’s the excellent dining too, with the city a gastronomes heaven! Famous Attica, rooftop bars, authentic pubs, fish and chips on the beach, creative cocktails and Aussie wines can all be a part of your amazing stay in magical Melbourne.
