Melbourne Life Time Experience

Melbourne Life Time Experience

In March 2014 I travelled to Melbourne along with my friend and it was indeed a life time experience. Melbourne has many great venues, places to watch, learn, inspect, exhibit, show, play, laugh, drive, race, rock and listen. There is so much to see and do in Melbourne, whether you are a local or international visitor. We went to Federation Square, Queen Victoria Market, Eureka Skydeck 88, Great Ocean Road, Melbourne Star, Melbourne Zoo.

Here are my 3 top attractions which I found really as must see places in Melbourne.On the very first day we visited Puffing Billy and Yaara valley. 

Yaara valley is the main attraction of Melbourne.
We only had one day to spend in the Yarra Valley for this Yarra Valley wine tour. We had gourmet lunch inside yaara valley and also visited 4 wineries and also visited the Dairy/ cheese factory. After that we explored the Yarra Valley further and visited the Chocolate factory along with The White Rabbit brewery. It was just great to taste a huge variety of Wines there and surely it was an amazing tour. I would recommend it to every visitor. I think this is one of the best things to do in Melbourne. It has lovely wineries where you can get plenty of wine to taste, the cheese and chocolate tastings are also lovely and the scenery is just fabulous. The wineries, chocolate and cheese factories were great and made the whole day so much fun,
Just a perfect day of wine food and fun. 

The second main attraction is Puffing Billy.Puffing billy is a short but cooling ride on a shaking, noisy, wooden train.The scenery was beautiful and green. 
Nice experience, and something different to do. It is pretty unique experience.The train ride was a very enjoyable experience for us. It was a Wonderful experience from start to end. It was so much fun, especially being able to ride with my legs out the windows.I liked the forest over there, it was really a very nice way to get away from the city and see some classic Melbourne.
I would say that  Australians are really lucky to have something so unique in their backyard.!!!

The Third main attraction is Queen Victoria Market Here one can get fruit and vegetables along with local and imported gourmet foods, meat, fish and poultry to hardware, clothing and authentic Australian souvenirs.
It is a typical market place and one can find everything whatever he/she is looking for. It is great place for a snack or lunch.We just wandered through the market and enjoyed talking to the stall owners.We really had a lot of fun there.So many places to eat, great street entertainment....lots of specialty stores and fresh produce stores. In summer,on every Wednesday evening there is a night market that is set up inside Queen Victoria Market. A really must visit place with great entertainment, a great vibe and excellent street food from all over the world.

It is a great magnet for visitors and  an iconic place of Melbourne.
It would be easy to spend a few hours each day there without getting bored. Definitely something for everyone. A must-do in Melbourne.

We explored Melbourne ourselves by using local transport like trams and shuttle service. The Melbourne Visitor Shuttle is a great way to explore inner city. The Ride is very comfortable while listening to stories about the city's colourful past and current happenings. One can get a copy of shuttle route service at the Melbourne Visitor Centre. We also visited The Shrine,Royal Botanic Gardens, Harbour Town-Docklands, Melbourne Museum and Carlton Gardens and Fitzroy Gardens. One can find a lot of shopping locations in center Melbourne near to Bourke street, Swanston street and Collins Street. Travelling to Melbourne was one of the best experience of my life!!
