Top Things to Do in Melbourne

Arts, culture, and culinary excellence; Melbourne is truly a unique city with a lot to offer any budding traveller. However, with all of these exciting things to try and taste, it can be a little overwhelming for someone new to the city to work out what they should spend their time on. So, to help you make the most of your time in this bastion of creativity, let’s take a look at the top things to do in Melbourne!

The Caffeine Capital

If you’ve ever taken even the slightest interest in Melbourne, then you know that it’s one of the world’s leading locations in high-quality coffee. This can be seen throughout every alleyway and street corner, as Melbourne is home to thousands of cafes all vying for the attention of caffeine connoisseurs looking for their next cup. This means that it’s surprisingly difficult to find a bad cup of coffee in Melbourne, as the number of premium-quality choices and options have made a touch of coffee snobbery the norm for many Melbournians.

So, naturally, try out cafes wherever you can during your Melbourne stay. It may be slightly pricier than some other available options but with the impeccable food, coffee and ambience, it’s more than worth it.

Street Art Central

Melbourne’s general aesthetic shouldn’t work as well as it does. Yet, as a tapestry of modern architecture with heritage buildings spun together with an endless flurry of street art that can be found on every wall and surface, Melbourne is a piece to behold in and of itself. Melbourne’s street art culture is such a draw for tourists that the city council has designated certain areas as street art-approved, with art that is constantly shifting as more artists add their mark to the stylistic landscape.

For anyone that enjoys wandering around and appreciating the scenery, Melbourne couldn’t be more perfect. However, if you want to experience Melbourne’s street art scene more directly, there is even a Melbourne street art tour that is run by some of the city’s more passionate artists in the field.

The City’s Alive With the Sound of Music

There’s almost too much live music happening in Melbourne. From arenas that host some of the world’s largest international artists to small bars and restaurants offering acoustic sets by local legends, a music lover will truly be spoiled for choice when it comes to getting their fix. Plus, there are certain areas in the city that have mainstay buskers constantly playing for the masses, meaning that good live music is practically inescapable. Do your research, or just turn up to any bar with a stage, and you may end up finding some hidden gems along the way.
