Melbourne Activities and Programs
Melbourne boasts an exciting line-up of activities, from floating in a hot air balloon to creating your own street art or tasting Australia’s finest pinot noir.
With a sophisticated and inventive culinary identity, Melbourne is home to a myriad of restaurants and bars, while the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula wine regions are a short drive away.
The city is known as a cultural and sporting hub and offers a range of festivals and events throughout the year that you can incorporate into your program.
Try a new Melbourne menu by heading to fine dining establishment Di Stasio Città, voted best new restaurant in the Australian Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Awards 2020.
See Melbourne from above
Fly high on Melbourne’s giant observation wheel and take in the 360-degree views from your spacious clear capsule, day or night. Book one of the special experiences for your group to enjoy canapes and wine above the city skyline.
Learn to surf at Urbnsurf, a two-hectare (four acre) man-made surfing lagoon next to Melbourne Airport, which uses next generation technology to produce the perfect wave every time. The precinct can host 2,000 people and is also home to the latest outpost of Australian dining institution Three Blue Ducks.
