7 Perfect Days



Description:

I'm heading to Melbourne and desire 'a week in the life of...' experience. Explore Melbourne's culinary led culture, see and be seen at one (or, a few) of the thousands of cafes and bars, watch a movie in the park and finally, do the Aussie thing and head up to the beach.

Day 1 - Melbourne


On your first day in Melbourne, you'll be delighted by the offerings surrounding your hotel. Take a stroll along the St Kilda beach foreshore and you'll realize that Melbourne is an active, family friendly and multicultural city. The beach is surrounded by cafes, bars, restaurants and of course, the mandatory beach volleyball game. For the evening, I'm heading to the conveniently located Circa (dinner) and Mink (drinkl). Enjoy!
