Things to do in Melbourne

Melbourne: A city to fall in love with

I was born and bred in Melbourne and still visit the city regularly – there’s never a shortage of things to do in Melbourne.

Each time I go back I like to discover something new, so I’ve been on many different experiences in Melbourne over the years. A DC3 flight to King island; a helicopter to Levantine winery for a delicious degustation; a seaplane to Sorrento for lunch; a light plane from Moorabbin airport. 

But I haven’t just experienced this vibrant city from the sky – I’ve done walking tours sampling everything from dumplings to coffee and chocolate, to Turkish delicacies and street art. I want to know the city inside out, and there’s no better way to enjoy it than in the streets and laneways. I’ve also put my creative self to work with a candlemaking course with my mother for Mother’s Day. I’ve sampled many dining experiences – from the meat lover’s experience, to the progressive dinner and a Thai degustation menu.

There are always so many more experiences to discover in this wonderful city – here are some of my favourites.

Scented Soy Candle Making Workshop

I had so much fun with my mum on this experience. We created something beautiful together.

Melbourne Walking Art Tour - 3 Hours

We met our guide in a small laneway bar and she showed us a side of this city I’ve never seen before.

Melbourne City Dumpling Walking Tour

If you want the best dumplings in Melbourne, I know where they are after this experience.

Turkish Food Walking Tour with Lunch

My daughter spent a semester in Istanbul and misses the food so I took her on this tour — she loved it!

Overnight Stay at The Larwill with Car Hire and Sparkling

Perfect location close to the city, close to the airport — it’s the ultimate home away from home.

Helicopter Flight and 8 Course Degustation at Levantine Hill

This is the ultimate date experience! I took my husband and he absolutely loved it.

Seaplane Ultimate Scenic Flight - For 2

A beautiful outing with my husband where we landed in Sorrento for a delicious and decadent morning tea.

Melbourne Lanes and Arcades Chocolate Walking Tour

I figured that if I was walking whilst eating chocolate, everything would be okay.

Shark Diving at SEA LIFE

Swimming with the sharks is definitely not for the faint hearted! What a fantastic experience.
