Melbourne

Food, wine and a spectacular coastline to discover


Melbourne is a vibrant, modern city with the scent of freshly roasted coffee wafting down its many alleyways. Come here if you want to experience top-notch brews, quality cuisine and contemporary Australian culture.  

You could easily spend a week exploring every nook and cranny this city has to offer, but if you’re only here for a weekend we recommend going for brunch at one of the city’s many cafes, exploring some of its museums and galleries, and doing a spot of shopping at some of the boutique stores. There are vintage, arts & craft and produce markets, creative street art, rooftop bars, and a myriad of sporting events to enjoy as well. If you’ve a little more time to spare take the quintessential road trip along the Great Ocean Road and witness the natural marvel of the Twelve Apostles. Award-winning wineries, great surf and wildlife sanctuaries aren’t too far away either and make for a wealth of great day trips. 

World Travellers consultants are here to help you plan the Melbourne getaway you’re after, whether you’re looking for a romantic weekend away, a family holiday or anything in between!
