Best destination to visit in Melbourne

Melbourne is one of the two most developed cities in Australia. If Sydney is vibrant and modern, Melbourne will bring a more peaceful and classic beauty. There are many interesting sights in Melbourne waiting for you to explore and at the end of your journey you will understand why it has been named “The most livable city in the world” for many years.

Experience on the City Circle train

City Circle is a typical train system in Melbourne that still maintains its ancient design, identified by the exterior as red, brown, yellow and green. The interior of the train will remind you of the trains of the previous century.

In the City Circle tram system in Melbourne, the most famous is Line 35. This is a completely free route, mainly serving tourists, taking visitors through major shopping and sightseeing destinations like the old Treasury Building, the National Assembly Building and the Princess Theater … and you can even hear historical explanations of each passing place.

National Library of Victoria

Your first stop is one of the most magnificent and beautiful libraries you will admire. To get to the National Library of Victoria, get off at the City Cirlcle Tram when you go to La Trobe Street, and the National Library of Victoria is at the corner of La Trobe and Russel Streets.

One of the most remarkable places at the National Library of Victoria is the La Trobe reading room with its majestic dome. You will really be overwhelmed by the beauty here. But remember to make a gentle smile to keep silent in the library.

Flinders Street Station

The next stop on the journey is the Flinders Street Railway Station, located at the corner of Flinders and Swanston Streets. If you take the City Circle train around the city center then Flinders Street Railway Station is among your stops, and this is a must-see.

Flinders Street Railway Station is the oldest station in Australia opened in 1854. It was also the busiest railway station in the southern hemisphere. Inside the train station, you will admire the ancient architecture with the iconic arched dome in Melbourne.

St Paul’s Church

Located directly opposite Flinders Station, St Paul’s Church is an English Catholic building with ancient European architecture. Coming to Melbourne, at all way you should not miss St Paul’s Church!

It is not difficult for you to recognize St Paul’s Church from afar, the church with a magnificent spire standing in the heart of Melbourne. Standing across the street, you can admire the whole project and hear the bells ringing from the inside. Step through the large doors to get inside, the magnificence of St Paul’s Church seems to open up in front of the eyes, the Gothic-style church with its tall dome makes me feel very small.

Federation Square

Federation Square (also known intimately as “Fed Square) is located near Flinders train station and St. Church. Paul’s, right at the intersection of Swanston Street and Flinders Street. Completely opposed to the ancient Victorian style of the surrounding buildings, Federation Square has a liberal and modern architectural style with a bold structure, asymmetric angles.

This is Melbourne’s main public and community space, where you can participate in many events, activities, explore museums or simply watch the flow of people. Fed Square is a great place to relax in the heart of Melbourne. To be honest, I can sit here for the whole sightseeing, not boring because there are countless activities going on around, especially performing arts. Sitting at Fed Square you will feel how free and artistic a city of Melbourne is.

Hosier Lane

Steps from Fed Square, you’ll reach Hosier Lane, the alley between Flinders and Collins streets. What’s so special about Hosier Lane that I’ve come here? If in other cities it is forbidden to paint in public in any form, then in Melbourne there is an area for artists to express their art. That is Hosier Lane – street art space, where you witness many colorful graffiti.

You will certainly find Hosier Lane familiar because it is one of the hottest check-in places in Melbourne (apart from the seven-color houses on Brighton Beach). Coming to Hosier Lane is really nice to have. You can “owned” yourself hundreds of virtual live photos here. But don’t forget to stop and enjoy these street art works!

Docklands Esplanade

In the evening head to Docklands, where the Yarra River flows into Port Phillips Bay. Docklands Esplanade is extremely busy at night. Here, you will see the panoramic view of the Yarra River and the two banks of Melbourne at night, extremely sparkling. And there is nothing more relaxing than a stroll to the Docklands Esplanade at night to see the wind and enjoy the scenery.

If you come to Melbourne in winter (July), you will admire the fireworks festival at Docklands port.
