The Eureka Skydeck

You can start your night out by enjoying an amazing view of the cityscape by visiting the Eureka Skydeck. If you’re up for it, you can also climb onto a glass cube that will net you n unobstructed 360-degree view of Melbourne at night.

Catch a Show

If you’re staying at one of the hotels Southbank has to offer – for instance, the WRAP on Southbank – you should definitely consider going to see one of the many shows in the city. These range from musical operas at Her Majesty’s Theatre to blockbusters at the Regent.

Go on a Ghost Tour

One of the spookier things you can do here at night is to take a ghost tour at the Old Melbourne Gaol. Built in the 1800s, this building once held some of the country’s most dangerous and notorious criminals.

Visit the Night Market

Of course, there are plenty of great shopping opportunities to take advantage of here in Melbourne and the Queen Victoria Night Markets are among the best. Here you can shop for everything – from new clothes and threads to fresh produce and souvenirs.

Best Places to Picnic in Melbourne

As the demand for al fresco dining increases, picnics have become fashionable again! Here are some of the all-time favourite local spots for a picnic.

Royal Botanic Gardens

Nestled on the outskirts of the city on approximately 100-acre land is the popular Royal Botanic Gardens. Throw your blanket next to a historic building – or, even better, on the banks of the Yarra River.

St Kilda Botanical Gardens

Located within an 11-minute drive from properties like WRAP on Southbank via State Route 3 is St. Kilda Botanical Gardens. These gardens have charming lawns overlooking an ornamental pond. You could even have some fun on their massive chessboard after eating.

Lysterfield Park

Home to a gorgeous lake with striking views, Lysterfield Park is a splendid location for a picnic – there are a plethora of places to settle cosily with your basket of treats.

Werribee Park Formal Garden

During your stay at one of the Melbourne CBD hotels, you could head down to Werribee Park Formal Garden. Here, you could easily find a place to comfortably have your picnic thanks to its well-maintained grounds and shaded spots.
