What’s on offer from Events Travel?
Melbourne is the capital of Victoria and sits on the banks of the Yarra River. It’s home to many of Australia’s best-known landmarks including Melbourne Cricket Ground, NGV and Royal Exhibition Building. Melbourne’s growth was largely thanks to the discovery of gold in Victoria in mid-1851. Diggers rushed to Melbourne causing a large population growth and heightened wealth. With this came a need for public infrastructure; large public buildings were erected including Parliament House, the Melbourne Gaol, the State Library, Melbourne Town Hall and St Patrick’s Cathedral.
The city continued to boom throughout the late 1800s, with Melbourne quickly becoming the richest city in the world. After World War II Melbourne expanded again due to immigration from southern Europe and the Mediterranean. Collins street became popular with boutique shops and open-air cafes, now locally known as The Paris End of Town.
Melbourne today is a dynamic cosmopolitan city with a laid back atmosphere, yet is stylish and forward-thinking. The city is renowned for creative arts, world-class dining, amazing galleries, shops and spectacular sports and events. Venture into the CBD to find hidden laneways brimming with street art from the world’s best, or head north to find bohemian shopping strips and the best Italian food outside of Italy. Just outside the CBD is the world-famous MCG and Melbourne Park, which hosts the Australian Open and is a short stroll or free tram ride away from the city. Intrepid travellers can spend days exploring wineries, nature areas and coastal drives all within one to two hours drive from the CBD. Melbourne has something for everything and is waiting for you.
The 2021 race will be held in spring, a popular time of year to visit Melbourne where parklands are green, flowers are blooming and optimism is high heading into summer and the festive season. Expects highs of 22ºC and lows of 12ºC. Rain is a possibility in November, more so than the traditional March dates for the race.

Established in 1846, the tranquil Royal Botanic Gardens are must-see when in Melbourne.
