Melbourne's most amazing attractions

  • Phillip Island Penguin Parade
    With the wobbly gate of a drunken sailor, and the charming black and white attire of a gentlemen’s tuxedo – it’s easy to see why the Little Penguins have lured millions of international visitors to Phillip Island.
  • Federation Square
    The social hub of Melbourne is a grand silver building, jutting up into the sky. Federation Square opened in October 2002 – as one of Australia’s most ambitious construction projects.
  • Crown Entertainment Complex
    A night out in Melbourne often begins or ends at Crown. Frankly, it's the city’s hottest entertainment spot, boasting more than a dozen nightclubs and bars and Melbourne’s gaming heartland.
  • Melbourne Zoo
    You can''t visit Melbourne without spending a day at Australia's oldest zoo. Located deep within leafy Royal Park, the Zoo sprawls over a 22-hectare area, offering twilight visits with live music over summer.
  • Queen Victoria Market
    Don’t leave home without souvenirs for the family. You’ll find the best of them at the Queen Victoria Market, one of the largest open air markets in the Southern Hemisphere.
  • Melbourne Museum
    See Australia’s champion horse Phar Lap, the kitchen set from the hit TV soap Neighbours and learn about local Aboriginal history and culture.
