As Melbourne is the capital city of the state of Victoria, in Australia, Melbourne has long been a popular tourist destination. Melbourne is well-known for its beautiful parks and gardens within the central part of Melbourne. Melbourne features several world-class museums, art galleries and theatres.
Some of Melbourne’s best attractions are free, but many have an entry fee which can be expensive especially if you want to visit all the attractions during your stay in Melbourne. However, it is definitely worthwhile checking out some family discounts or discounted tickets that are available before visiting any attraction in Melbourne. Some attractions also have annual pass options which offer unlimited visits over a year period so they are great value for money if you plan on visiting more than once during your stay.
Special Melbourne Tours
If you are a visitor from interstate, overseas or the country travelling to Melbourne with your children for a holiday why not consider opting for one of Melbourne’s specialised Melbourne tours that have been designed specifically with families in mind. These Melbourne family tours offer your children the opportunity to explore Melbourne while being guided around Melbourne by knowledgeable tour guides who will answer all your questions about what you are seeing and learn about Melbourne’s fascinating history. An added bonus for parents is these Melbourne family tours run at times when general public access is restricted so there will be fewer visitors on your tour which makes it much more enjoyable if you want a less crowded experience. Many of these family-friendly Melbourne tours also stop off at some fantastic restaurants along the way where you can stop and catch your breath and perhaps enjoy a snack. Melbourne tours that take in Melbourne’s best attractions are then picked up again later in the day at specified times, so no waiting around for public transport or trying to navigate Melbourne’s city life on foot with tired kids in tow.
