24 Hours in Mel­bourne

Let's Travel - - AUSTRALIA -

Re­cently, at the end of a very en­joy­able coach trip from Syd­ney to Mel­bourne with AAT Kings, I de­cided to ex­tend my stay in Mel­bourne by an ex­tra night. It is Australia’s best state cap­i­tal af­ter all. My ‘South­ern Cap­i­tals – City Meets Bush’ tour with AAT Kings had taken me to places I had never been to; places like Can­berra, Beech­worth and the his­toric town of Glen­rowan. We got to see the mighty Snowy River project and look over the ski fields of Thredbo (with­out snow un­for­tu­nately) and to gaze upon Australia’s high­est point… Mt. Kosciuszko. At only 2,228m you can see why Australia is the flat­test con­ti­nent on the planet.

With in­ner-city precincts rang­ing from the fa­mous city cen­tre laneways to the bay­side chic of the south and eclec­tic north - Mel­bourne is a city of con­stant dis­cov­ery where fash­ion, food, sport and en­ter­tain­ment, shop­ping, her­itage, the arts and good living all come to­gether to cre­ative a life­style en­vied by many around the world.
