If you are still wondering why you need to explore this city at length, I'll give you four main reasons: Food and Wine, Nature and Wildlife, Sports and Art and Culture.
Experience the eclectic food and wine scene with a visit to authentic Australian food markets and indulge in wine-tasting sessions
From restaurants to quaint cafes by celebrity chefs Melbourne is your one-stop destination to savour the best that Australia has to offer. After all, it is not called the food and wine capital of Australia for nothing! Step into Australia's oldest continuously running food market, Prahran Market, proudly being in operation since 1864. Shop for cheeses, organic fruit and vegetables, beef, pork, poultry and fresh seafood. Or visit Queen Victoria market, an iconic Melbourne destination, and the largest open-air market in the southern hemisphere, a great place to enjoy a meal, grab one of Melbourne’s best coffees and enjoy a truly unique shopping experience. And if the thought of over 600 shops and stalls seems a little daunting, you can opt to go for a two-hour Ultimate Foodie Tour, designed for the foodies.
