Want a little more adventure?

If shopping isn't your thing, there's plenty more to keep you busy in Melbourne. You can discover why Victoria is called the "Garden State" or if you're a sports nut, be sure to check out the famous MCG! You can also just jump on a tram and get lost in the maze of laneways and much, much more!
