Your tips Visit or stay at the Langham Hotel - wonderful hospitality! Ride the tram to St Kilda beach for the sunday markets or Ackland Street cake shops. Experience a game of AFL at the MCG (Olympic Stadium in 1956). Visit Collins Street for designer shopping such as Tiffany & Co, Armani, Gucci & Dior.
I love this place - Melbourne is always busy. It has a reputation as the sporting capital of the world - Australian Open Tennis, Formula 1 Grand Prix, Million Dollar spring Horse Racing carnival plus AFL Australian Football during winter. Along Southbank river-walk there are many great restaurants and bars to explore. Crown Casino has entertainment for all ages. The Regent Theatre stages regular Broadway shows whilst a short walk away Federation Square is a nice meeting point for Melburnians.
