Known as the cultural capital of Australia, you won't know where to start as you disembark your charter yacht on to the docks. Instantly being surrounded by a metropolis which hosts a population of 4.5 million, the city of Melbourne creates an initial impact that you’ll never forget.
On arrival you may feel inevitably drawn to one of the hundreds of cafes or restaurants. With cuisine from practically every corner of the globe, there is a taste to suit every visitor to the capital. Many of the best eateries are hidden away on side streets, so be sure to take the time to turn a few extra corners to find the hidden gems of the Australian culinary world.
After filling up on a hearty breakfast, visit some of the extraordinary markets and boutiques that Melbourne has to offer. Tucked away in the Victorian era architecture you will come across many unique products to steal your heart as well as all of your favourite brands from back home. Shopping is more than a hobby in Melbourne, indeed just like in Sydney, it's part of the lifestyle.
Lifestyle in Melbourne will continue to impress you with the many art galleries and museums around you. Travelling around on the efficient tram system you will be able to visit as many cultural exhibits as you like before indulging in one of the various festivities which enlighten the city on a regular basis. From outdoor shows to formula one racing, there is something for everyone to enjoy when visiting this magnificent capital city.
In addition to the shopping, Melbourne is also famous for its incredible wildlife. Start off by making a journey to the Phillip Island Nature Parks. Any trip to Melbourne cannot be complete without introducing yourself to one of the most iconic Australian species of wildlife, the koala. Get up close and cuddly with these tree hugging creatures in the Koala Conservation Centre before furthering your nature experience by watching the nightly penguin parade across the beach.
As if that wasn't enough for your animal encounters in Melbourne, before setting off in your charter yacht stop off in the midst of the Port Phillip Bay to enjoy the experience of swimming with dolphins. The friendly aquatic favourites will play and swim with you before performing their tricks in their own habitat.
