Hello jtex4,

Start off by examining www.visitmelbourne.com.au as that official site will give you a very good idea of what is available here, though it can't possibly cover everything that might interest you. And therein lies the problem for anyone attempting to help you. You know 'NOTHING' about Australia, we know nothing about what might interest you, so come back with specific questions after studying the site given and we will be glad to help.

Something must have inspired you to come? Do you want to see the city, do you want to experience the culture, do you want to see natural scenery, do you want to see local fauna and flora, do you want to do adventure activities? You don't really have time to do very much and we know nothing about your priorities.

Get on the free tourist bus that runs around the city. You can hop on and off at your leisure.

Try the City Circle tram - also free. It will take you past some of the most impressive Melbourne buildings like the World Heritage listed Royal Exhibition Building, Parliament House, Treasury Building, State Library, Flinders St Station and the new Docklands.

If you go to the Information Centre in Federation Sq you can pick up pamphlets that offer you scenic walks around the city such as the Golden Mile.
