					                         Why Melbourne Should Not Be Missed

Melbourne is often seen as the little brother to Sydney and rightly so. Despite the fact that
Sydney has all the big attractions like the harbour bridge and the opera house, Melbourne
still has everything a tourist could want in a place and more. You can sight see and take
walks around the city, visiting some of the sites that have particular historic value to the
country. If you are a wine fanatic, then you will be pleased to know that just outside the city
limits there is more wine country than you could ever imagine. The Yarra valley is well
known for producing some of the world’s best wines and you are in for a real treat if you
decide to make a day of it. Once you get started out there, there is no telling where you
might end up.

The first thing you need to do is find a place to stay that is comfortable and convenient. If
you are particular about your accommodation you can stick a chain like hotelurban.com.au
where they have branches in a number of cities. That way you know what to expect at each
hotel because the service and quality is even across the board. You can hire a single hotel
suite or you can check into a fully serviced apartment where you have everything you need,
including the kitchen sink. Once you have acquired suitable lodgings for yourself, you are
free to plan the rest of your visit. There is plenty for you to do there so you need to have a
few ideas in mind before you get there. You can go shopping for new clothes and then relax
by a cafe bistro enjoying an espresso while you wind down from the day. Take a trip up to
St Kilda, where you can visit the bohemian styled amusement park and walk through the
mouth of the famous clown face. Winter is always a good time to be in Melbourne because
of all the festivals. They have Christmas in July, the Melbourne writer’s festival and icehouse
winter skate festival, all of which are perfect for the cold weather and great for getting
outdoors for a change to do something different. If you are fortunate enough to experience
an Australian summer though, you are in for a serious treat.

There is more fun in the sun than most people know how to deal with, and as long as you
are prepared for a good time, there is nothing to stop you from having one.
