I’ve been to Melbourne several times. Most of those times were in transit at the airport but I also drove through it on my way across Australia a couple of years ago, however I’ve never had the time to stop and have a look around, so I’ve always considered Melbourne to be a city that I haven’t visited. That was a fact that I needed to change and so I booked a flight for a quick getaway to the city. I only had two days and nights to explore, but it was enough to give me a taste of what Melbourne has to offer. I stuck to the CBD and really enjoyed wandering around the city’s streets and lane ways. It has a fantastic dining scene and in places I even felt like I was back in Europe, and the trams only added to that atmosphere. I can definitely see why so many people love the city. I’ll be back for sure.
As usual, I took lots of photos during my stay. Here are some of my favourite photos of downtown Melbourne.
