Where to Stay
Melbourne is a huge city, with that being said we stayed in two different areas while we were there and would 100% recommend that others stay in those areas as well. The first was a hotel near Chinatown, very centrally located with plenty of incredible places to eat just around the corner. The second was near the Southbank River Walk, a little fancier and a tourist hub due to its' proximity to the many museums. Below we've gathered some other hotels in those areas, as we think they are great, central locations to base out of!
Places to Eat
Our favorite part of staying at the ibis Melbourne Central was that it was so close to so many good spots to eat - and we hardly scratched the surface! We would love to go back one day and continue adding to this list of our favorite finds in Melbourne! Near the Riverbank, places can be a bit spendier, however we did find some great eateries there too!
Things to Do
Like we mentioned above, there is seriously so much to do while basing out of Melbourne. Whether you want to get out of town or spend your time exploring the city center museums, there is truly something for everyone! Our ultimate favorite thing to do near Melbourne was seeing the penguins at Phillip Island - but we highly recommend anything on this list!
