This facility is one of the highlights of Melbourne's sporting culture. It covers an enormous variety of sports and allows visitors to either just immerse themselves in the history or get interactive with lots of sporting challenges. Great for adults and kids.

We used A Tour With A Difference to see GOR. It was my 16yo son and me. I recommend them highly; they use smaller buses (about 15 passenger) and make frequent stops to sightsee, have a snack, etc. At one stop we got to walk around and see koalas and very inquisitive parrots in the wild. They also have hikes at Otway Rainforest, Loch Ard Gorge, and 12 Apostles. Unlike the huge buses, ATWAD spends enough time at each stop so you can walk down to the beach from the bluffs instead of a quick...More

Month long trip to Melbourne planned for April 2016. (23 Replies)
We are in the early stages of planning a month long trip to Melbourne in April 2016. 'We' are a couple in our mid-fifties in good health and reasonable level of fitness. Our main interests revolve around museums/ galleries, architecture, the great outdoors. We aren’t interested in shopping or fine dining. We have travelled fairly extensively in Australia during two previous month-long visits, but mainly in the West, North and north-east of the continent. The main reason behind the timing...More

Hi Andy. I'll leave most of the advice for others but for accommodation you should seriously consider air b and b. There are some whole apartments that are an absolute bargain for a long stay. Some under $100 a night. You might even enjoy staying with a local host. Get into a neighbourhood near the city and feel more like a local, St Kilda, Fitzroy, Richmond, Sth Yarra etc. That'll also be easier for parking if you have a car for a few days. Have a great trip! ...More
