Discover the kangaroos and festivals of Melbourne
Fancy a relaxing city trip? Book flights to Melbourne and take a trip to the city’s welcoming Federation Square. This is the beating heart of Melbourne with lots of shops, restaurants and bars. Stroll through Chinatown or go see the kangaroos at Melbourne Zoo. Just outside Melbourne you’ll find the 12 Apostles: limestone rock formations that have been separated from the mainland by erosion. You can be there in a couple of hours driving along the stunningly scenic Great Ocean Road. Surfers will find some phenomenal surf spots along the way!
Combining culture and the beach
Victorian terraced houses, Renaissance buildings and sleekly designed skyscrapers form the landscape of Melbourne. Amidst this special mixture of architecture there’s so much to do. Visit the National Gallery of Victoria and take a wander around Australia’s biggest open-air market: the Queen Victoria Market. Seen enough of the city? Then head for the beach at St. Kilda, where you can walk along the Pier and see the blue penguins waddling back to their nests at sunset. This is also the place to be when it comes to the many festivals for which Melbourne is famous. Melbourne is the ideal destination for a city trip and the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in Australia. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Melbourne now!
Nature in the city
Residents of Melbourne love natural surroundings. Albert Park surrounds Albert Park Lake, where you can rent a boat and enjoy spotting dozens of different birds that live here. The Carlton Gardens may be Victorian but today you can walk, cycle or jog here to your heart’s content. This park is also home to the Melbourne Museum of natural history: a futuristic building with 6 floors full of interesting exhibits. And you won’t be able to miss the complete skeleton of a blue whale!

ARTS & CULTURE
Federation Square was inaugurated in 2002 to celebrate the centennial of the Australian Federation. Located between the Central Business District (CBD) and Melbourne’s South Bank, the square is a tribute to the art and culture of the country. Its construction resulted in a true revival of downtown Melbourne, which continues even today.
East of Melbourne, just one hour away lies the Yarra Valley, the beautiful area where many of Australia’s famous wines come from. The Yarra River flows gently towards Hobsons Bay, winding its way through the fertile land that is home to some of Australia’s wonderful wildlife. The intriguing platypus is just one of the animals that lives here.
