Sports

If you go to Melbourne during the cricket season, you must watch a game feeling the atmosphere of Melbourne Cricket Ground. The same ground host Cricket in Summer and AFL matches during the winter season. The stadium is an Australian icon and also the largest cricket ground in the world by capacity. Even for those who are not very fond of sports, this is an unmissable attraction. Melbourne is also home to Australia Open Tennis Competition.

The Magnificent MCG also called The ‘G’

Transportation System

Melbourne city is very well connected by public transport, so unless you are living in the suburbs and travelling to another suburb, I won’t recommend taking out car. You don’t want to deal with traffic or parking troubles, do you?

‘E’ class Trams, Built in Melbourne, For Melbourne

The optimal means of public transport is a tram. You can travel free by tram in Central Business District. Some of the tram routes are through amazing scenic areas. So it is not only convenient and well connected, but fairly easy way to cover many attractions within the inner city.

Gastronomic Paradise of Australia

Melbourne is often called a gastronomic paradise of Australia as the city has cozy cafes, restaurants and restaurants almost every step. The price in street cafes and restaurants is quite affordable. If you don’t want to get out of your hotel, try food delivery websites. With amazing restaurants and great cafes, food options are unlimited.

Shopping in Melbourne

Going to watch a Cricket ground requires a bit of preparation. Don’t forget to carry, a broad brim hat, a pair of sunglasses, a sunscreen lotion, a mobile phone with a good camera. You never know you might meet a cricketer on the ground, and a perfect opportunity to get their autograph may arise. You might regret not carrying an Autograph bat along. Find a Cricket Store in Melbourne to shop any cricket related gears.

You need to be mindful that the city will be crowded if any sports are being played in MCG, AAMI Park or Etihad stadium. Trains run till late so you are covered there. Though Melbourne is 6th safest city in the world, caution is always advisable. Low crime doesn’t mean No Crime, so avoid walking alone in night.

Weather

Tourists visiting Melbourne must be ready to embrace its infamous ‘four seasons in a day’ weather. It is a good idea to carry, an extra layer of clothing in case it gets cold in the summer season, and an umbrella for unexpected rain.

Top Attractions in Melbourne – fantastic architecture and monuments

Victoria State Library, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Rod Laver Arena, Rialto Towers, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and many others, all of them become objects of the world’s cultural heritage and remain emblematic monuments for Melbourne Open.

The city houses many significant historic buildings. The Central Business District is laid out as the Hoddle Grid and is best travelled using Public Transport or by walk.

Eureka Towers, Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, Great Ocean Drive, Melbourne zoo are one of the many famous things to experience.
