Accommodation in Melbourne Central Business District

You’ve been working in your cubicle too hard for too long. Set your out of office reply and book a holiday to the Melbourne CBD as soon as you’re done reading this. In the span of a few hours, you can explore the National Gallery of Victoria, shop at the Queen Victoria Market, and stroll through the historic Fitzroy Gardens in East Melbourne. Still have questions? We have answers.

How long does it take to get from Melbourne Airport to the city?

Melbourne Airport (MEL) is also known as Tullamarine Airport and is the second busiest airport on the continent. From Melbourne Airport to the city is 22 km and will take you about 22 minutes via car. You also might have heard there is a Melbourne airport train, but it’s really a bus that links the terminals to the CBD. It runs 24 hours a day, but if you need a rest, check out our Melbourne Airport hotels and take a break first.

Where is the Melbourne Mall?

The Melbourne Central Shopping Centre (aka the Melbourne Mall) is easy to find: it’s located right in the CBD. There are electronics stores, high-fashion joints, health food stands, and a whole bunch of other goodies. Of course, if you’re here to shop, you have to visit Queen Victoria Market. With a hotel in North Melbourne, you won’t have far to go to bring all your goodies home.

What is the main street in Melbourne?

The city is intersected by heaps of streets, but there’s one you should definitely know about. Melbourne’s Bourke Street mall is a must-visit. When you want to eat you go to Bourke Street. When you want to shop you go to Bourke Street. And when you want to drink, well, you get the picture.

Enough is enough, already. Tell your boss you’ll be back in a week or two and book a holiday to Melbourne’s CBD now. Expedia.com.au will help you every step of the way.

Melbourne’s central business district delivers everything you should expect from a city centre. Thriving restaurants, ample opportunities for shopping, and busy thoroughfares are all a part of what makes Melbourne CBD pulse with life. Still, despite the many businesses that have made the CBD home, you will find the tram weaving though tall trees and along city parkland. Spend your morning here perusing what Bourke Street Mall has for sale, your afternoon on a downstream river cruise, and your evening in Chinatown indulging in a savory meal.

Things to Do in Melbourne

The city of Melbourne offers an eclectic array of activities that are sure to delight visitors of all lifestyles. To get a good look at the plants and animals native to this land, take a trip to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne Zoo, or SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium. Alternatively, witness the local creatures in a more natural habitat by spending some time at the Healesville Sanctuary or the Werribee Open Range Zoo. If nature’s not your thing, the National Gallery of Victoria—Australia’s oldest public art museum—features an expansive collection of paintings, sculptures, and other works by the country’s most famous artists.

Wine tasting is another popular attraction in Melbourne, and the nearby Yarra Valley is home to several vineyards and wineries that offer tours and tastings all year long. If you’d rather spend your time bushwalking, Dandenong Ranges National Park presents trekkers with a variety of trails, including one which features more than 700 steeply stacked steps across 2.5 kilometres of land. And, of course, you can always stop by any of Melbourne’s most famous landmarks, including Eureka Tower, Queen Victoria Market, and St. Paul’s Cathedral, among many others.

Weather in Melbourne

Melbourne is famous for having weather that changes so rapidly, it can leave visitors and inhabitants with the feeling that they’ve experienced all four seasons in one day. During the majority of the year, Melbourne’s climate can be classified as temperate, making for sultry summers, brisk winters, and relatively balmy spring and fall seasons that are virtually indistinguishable from each other. Temperatures generally hover around 25 degrees Celsius in the summer months, while in winter the mercury only falls to about 14 degrees. And as for rainfall, visitors can expect regular precipitation throughout the year, though the city tends to be wettest from September through December.
