No matter how long you’re planning to stay, there’s plenty to see and do in Melbourne on a superyacht vacation. Take a look at our tips on the very best things to do in this extraordinary city on a luxury yacht charter.

The second-largest city in Australia, Melbourne presents an abundance of possibilities for an Australia yacht charter. Indeed, whether you’re visiting by sailing yacht or motor yacht, there’s a wealth of opportunity to be found in this coastal capital.

From cruising grounds punctuated with awe-inspiring spots to a series of annual fixtures ideally suited for event charters, the destination is simply brimming with premier attractions.

In order to get you inspired, take a look at four of the best things to do whilst enjoying a private yacht charter in Melbourne.

1. Attend The Australian Open

Marking the beginning of the Grand Slam season, the Australian Open brings the world’s best tennis players to Melbourne every January.

Hosted at the highly innovative Melbourne Park, spectators are sure to be as amazed by their surroundings as they are the talent competing in front of them.

The perfect excuse for charterers to step ashore the mainland, the Australian Open has a long standing tradition of entertaining only the most discerning of crowds.

Situated in the heart of the city, Melbourne Park is only five minutes from a number of leading restaurants and bars, allowing charterers to enjoy a highly luxurious meal to round off their experience.

2. Explore The Mornington Peninsula

Resplendent with wineries and rolling landscapes, the Mornington Peninsula provides even more possibilities away from the vibrant city.

Populated by a host of friendly dolphins, the peninsula is easily accessible from Melbourne’s state of the art marinas and provides some exceptional cruising grounds for charterers to take in.

An ideal alternative to the fast pace of Melbourne, a variety of sequestered beaches provide just the right amount of tranquility to indulge before making a passage back to the mainland.

Whilst the beauty of the Mornington Peninsula is wholly undisturbed, a small selection of boutique spas are available to fulfil any necessary desires.

3. Attend The Melbourne Cup

Whilst England has Royal Ascot and France the Arc De Triomphe, Australia has the Melbourne Cup.

One of the the most prestigious races the world over, the distinctively Australian atmosphere which surrounds the event makes it a wholly unique experience.

Conduced at the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, charterers will also be treated to ‘Fashions on the Field’, a tradition which has emerged over the course of many years, awarding substantial prizes for the best dressed men and women.

4. Hit the Town

Illuminated by the bright city lights, a number of world-renowned eateries call out to be sampled before heading out for a memorable night on the town.

From Richmond to Carlton, the attractions on offer are seemingly infinite and are sure to satisfy the tastes of every visitor.
