The city that has been voted the world’s most livable – six times – is also one of the best to visit, as it offers a diverse range of attractions. A giant observation wheel, sacred sports ground, museums, historical prisons and the oldest building in Australia are just some of the 20 must-see attractions in Melbourne.
Prominently positioned opposite Federation Square and diagonally across from Flinders Street Station, St Paul’s Cathedral was consecrated in 1891 and rests on-site where the first Christian service in Melbourne took place in 1836. Designed by William Butterfield, the gothic-style Anglican Cathedral was visited by Pope John Paul II on 28 November 1986.
Melbourne is famous for its trams, so no trip to the city would be complete without riding the City Circle Tram. This free service allows passengers to travel through the city on the historic burgundy W-class tram, hopping on and off as they wish. The entire journey takes an hour to complete and passes many places of interest around the city.
