Queen Victoria Market
Loud and packed, this open-air market was opened in 1878, but is surprisingly still with the times! It’s popular among locals and tourists alike and is definitely a must-visit when you drop by at Melbourne. The market is closed Mondays and Wednesdays, and during summer and winter, be sure to visit the Night Markets that are held every Wednesday. Just 5 minutes from Avani Central Melbourne Residences is where you’ll find this infamous market!

Great Ocean Road
If you’re looking to reconnect with the ocean, then a drive down Ocean Road is ideal for you. As one of the most popular tourist destinations in Victoria – enjoy undisturbed views of nature and the sea. It’s a four-hour ride without any stops, so make sure you’re geared up for the long ride!

Explore Melbourne’s cafes!
Melbourne is famous for coffee, so energize yourself with coffee when you’re here! If you’re based at any of the Broadbeach hotels, you won’t be disappointed as there are plenty of cafes around this area!

World-class shopping
The city of Melbourne is truly a shopper’s paradise, another reason to visit! The biggest shopping centre, Chadstone Shopping Centre is located 20 minutes from the city centre. A free shuttle bus service runs hourly from the city centre to Chadstone, so you don’t have to worry about getting there!
