    It was beautiful see Melbourne from a different angle. You can walk around and have a 360o view of the city. Sunset is amazing and you can enjoy a good coffee as well.

    I managed to convince my son (11 years) to go have a look, he agreed. We spent over an hour here and both loved the learning experience. We also decided to play Cluedo which was a great way to help my son learn more. Overall we both had a great morning there and highly recommend.

    My wife and I visited this important place in the morning before heading to Jardin Tan Restaurant for High Tea.

    We walked up the flights of stairs to the Balcony to enjoy the surrounding views from all directions. After that, we walked through the various rooms to see the impressive displays and the Crypt.

    We also walked around the perimeter of the external grounds to admire the size of the Shrine and the architecture. We walked inside the Terrace Courtyard to admire the plants and the serenity of the area.

    We visited the Conservatory today as part of our walk through the gardens. Our daughter was married in the Conservatory in 2000 so it brought back many memories.
    The floral displays inside this delightful are wonderful and the temperate environment a welcome relief from the chilly winds outside.
    Entry is free and this really is a must visit attraction. I have posted some photos which show how delightful it is.
    The immaculate upkeep of the grounds and the Conservatory is a credit to the city.

    This lovely area on the banks of the Yarra River in the heart of Melbourne is a great shopping and dining precinct. Great place to stroll along and choose from the large number of eateries or browse the shops. From Southbank you can also board the ferries to Williamstown or join one of the river cruises.

    Went for Robbie Williams concert and found the venue one of the best for concerts ive been too. Facitities were plentiful, very clean and modern. The only down side was lack of staff (none actually) to help people find their seats and the piss poor transport arrangements for people leaving after. Sorry two thumbs down for Melbourn post concert transport organisers.

    Melbourne Central is more than a shopping centre. It has one of the major stations on the City Loop underground system. The Shot Tower is a very tall structure encased in a glass tower; it dates from the 19th century. There is a small museum at the base of the tower, which hosts an outlet of RM Williams, the Bushman's Outfitter. There is a carillion, with a Seiko clock playing Waltzing Matilda, Australia's national song, on the hour. A number of mechanical parrots also appear. Melbourne Central, with its combination of retailing, transport and office space is certainly the centre of the City.

    The Street Art of Melbourne is of a high quality and in some cases paid for by the City of Melbourne for specific purposes. This in itself is a contentious issue and has caused great debate amongst street artists and others.

    They make political statements, honour those who have died and showcase beauty in the form of portraits / cartoons.

    I enjoy walking and photographing here various times of the year as the Street Art is very fluid - ever changing - with the exception of a few larger murals. This makes for an exciting trip each time - what am I going to see today?

    Kudos to the the incredible street artists and their sheer talents. Spend time looking - up, down, in the side alleys, on windows and rubbish bins so you don't miss the small - large intricacies available for the human eye to feast upon.

    You can book a guided Street Art / Laneways tour or grab a map about all the laneways from the Melbourne Tourist centres.

    Simply stunning and beautifully spiritual place. A quiet place to reflect right in the city centre. I don't practice religion but this place is amazing. It has such beautiful architecture which alone keeps you captivated. Warmly welcomed by the staff inside you can spend as much or a little time as you want in this stunning place and there is a small chapel where you can pray privately. Amazing mosaic floor tiles too!

    A stunning building used for son's graduation. Beautiful place to celebrate such an occasion! The outside area was great and during the night had a great feel about it with lots of people hanging out and enjoying the night.

    AC/DC has a street named after them. Not many rock and roll bands can make that claim, but there are very few bands like AC/DC, the world's greatest hard rock band. Fan will love seeing AC/DC Lane, it's worth the trip,
