6 nighjts in MEL

Hi all!

My friend and I are currently in Mel, staying here untill the 17. We have already been to the botanic gardens , shrine of remembrence, and generally walking around Douth yarra, st kilsa and the city. What would suggest we do in the remainder of our time?

BTW, at the moment we're staying in south yarra, and tomorrow we're moving to Spencer st.

We are carless at the moment, but on the 17 we'll get a campervan, and start driving north torwards Cairns

Thx!

Why not do a short day tour to the Great Ocean Road or Philip Island.

For sport have a look on the MCG calendar - its cricket season.

You can easily take a train from Southern Cross station (on Spencer St) to Belgrave station for a trip on Puffing Billy steam train through the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, or to Ballarat to visit historic Soverign Hill.

If you like your sport, then I would highly recommend a tour of the Melbourne Cricket Ground and or Rod Laver Tennis center - the home of the Australain Open.
