1. Melbourne Skydeck

Featured: Classic Great Ocean Road Tour with Rainforest Walk

Towering 88 floors above the CBD, you can’t miss the Eureka building. It’s distinctive gold crown is instantly recognisable and houses Melbourne Skydeck — one of the city’s most popular attractions. The 360-degree views are epic, and you’ll be able to spot many famous landmarks. If you’re game, take a walk on The Edge — a glass cube that slides out from the side of the building (prepare yourself for the dissolving floor!).

2. Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)

Nothing beats experiencing a sporting match at the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), but if you don’t have that option you can still get up close and personal with the ‘G’ on a guided venue tour. Go behind the scenes and see the player change rooms, players’ balcony, Bill Lawry Cricket Centre and the Long Room, and take a walk on the hallowed turf (all subject to availability). The MCG is also home to the Australian Sports Museum, which offers an amazing range of interactive experiences.

3. Puffing Billy

A ride on Puffing Billy in the Dandenong Ranges east of Melbourne is a chance to step back in time to the era of Victorian steam train travel. The fully restored heritage locomotive meanders along between Belgrave and Gembrook, and has been enthralling visitors of all ages for decades. The Puffing Billy railway came into service at the turn of the 20th century as part of a drive to develop rural parts of Victoria. Today the service is one of the state’s premier tourist attractions, and one that appeals to all ages.

4. Phillip Island Penguin Parade

Around 500,000 people make the 90-minute trip from Melbourne to Phillip Island every year to see the Penguin Parade at sunset. The little penguins’ mad dash up the beach to their rookery follows what can be up to four weeks of fishing in Bass Strait. Watching the penguins arrive home has been popular with tourists for almost a century. Hire a car and head down to the island under your own steam, or book a penguin tour from Melbourne.

8. Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium

Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium is absolutely awash with amazing things to see and do.

See rays, jellyfish, sharks, penguins, turtles, a huge saltwater crocodile and myriad colourful tropical fish. Your ticket includes keeper presentations and the chance to see animal feedings throughout the day.
