Melbourne is a beautiful City. There is loads to see and it is a struggle to see it all sometimes in such a short space of time.
He’s my 1 day walking city guide to make the most of Melbourne.
PS There is an optional Tram ride to extend it out of the CBD 🙂
Lets Begin – Start At Flinders Street Station
Then onto Federation Square
The Jump across the Street to Federation Square, there’s always functions going on so have a walk around
St Paul’s Cathedral
Whilst you’re there take some pics of St Paul’s Cathedral
Walk down Flinders street and turn down Degraves Street – which is a Mecca for Coffee Lovers, a perfect stop for Breakfast! There’s loads of choice here from, juice bars to espressso; burgers to Pho.
Melbourne Central Mall’s Shot Tower
Explore the lanes around this area, then walk up Swanston street towards the Melbourne Central Station. In the Mall above, there some more shopping to be had but most importantly there’s more instragram opportunities!
GPO – The New H&M Building
Take a pic of the Historic CBD Shot Tower – more info on this historical building can be found here – http://www.melbournecentral.com.au/our-heritage In the Mall there is also a food court, Cinema and a Pub if you need a top up! Head back down Elizabeth Street, past the GPO the new H&M Flagship store – which is on the Corner of Elizabeth / Burke.
Take some time to wander through the Inner City Malls on Burke Street. Then head back down towards the river and visit the Immigration Museum on Flinders Street and hear stories about how people used to arrive and why they left their homes to travel to Australia.
Cross the River and check out the Glamourous Bars and Restaurants along Southbank
Pay your Respect at the Shrine of Remembrance
Carry on walking down the Yarra River towards the Royal Botanical Gardens and pay your respects at the Shrine of Remembrance.
Explore the City by one of its Famous Trams
Grab a Tram and head down to St Kilda Don’t forget the Trams are Free in the CBD but outside you need a ‘Myki’ card you can buy with a day pass from all the 7/11 Stores
Head down to St Kilda
Check out St Kilda Pier
Check out this Iconic Amusement Park
Acland Street – St Kilda
Then wander down Acland Street, with all the shops, bars and Bakery’s
There you go, that’s a pretty hectic day! but a great way to explore a lot of what Melbourne has to offer. The only thing left to do is to hit up one of the Bars on Chapel Street and enjoy your evening.
