Welcome to the latest video in our Australian Video series where we look to provide you with guided insight into the striking Australian State of Victoria.
The scent of roasting coffee beans wafts through the air in Melbourne, Australia. This city is serious about its coffee, and if you’re game, you can base an entire Melbourne tour around sampling the offerings from local cafés.
If you’re looking for a little more than a caffeine buzz from your Melbourne sightseeing, you’re in luck. Melbourne sits on the banks of the Yarra River, and you’ve got your pick of cathedrals, parks, and giant buildings to explore, as well as an extensive streetcar network to help you get from one place to the next. Ready for a delicious meal? Take the tram to the Southbank neighborhood, where you can enjoy lunch at a café along the riverfront.
Melbourne’s locals love art, and the inner city laneways are jammed with street artists painting over the external walls of buildings. Don’t worry; these artists have a permit and are sanctioned by the city. You can spend hours examining the artwork and talking to the artists about their inspiration, and then follow it up with a trip to Queen Victoria Market. You’ll find hundreds of stalls here devoted to selling delicious fresh produce, local crafts, and yes, more coffee. We hope you like caffeine.
Cap off the day with a little bit of history when you visit Luna Park™. This theme park, established in 1912, features one of the world’s oldest roller coasters and a number of additional vintage rides. Just make sure you let your lunch settle before you ride—the old coaster really gets rolling!
