MELBOURNE, Australia - Whether it's your first time to Melbourne or you're a local wanting to explore the hot spots in under 24 hours, the DoubleTree by Hilton Melbourne - Flinders Street team has you covered. From the best brunch spots to accommodation tips, the below list of '5 Melbourne Musts in under 24 hours' ensures you experience the best of what Melbourne has to offer.
1. First things first, let's find a bed! For those who don't live in Melbourne, finding affordable and convenient accommodation can be a difficult process. Melbourne's a big city, so it's important to ensure you don't get trapped too far from the action! As we've all heard before, location, location, location. Here are our three tips when sourcing accommodation:
2. Brunch-in, brunch-out. Melbournians are famous for their smashed avo, breaky burgers and fritters, but who does it best? Cumulus Inc. have been identified as the 'brunch connoisseurs' by Melbourne locals, making it a must try! Located on Flinders Lane, this place oozes trendy and serves up some stellar dishes. If you can't make it for brunch, it's also open for lunch and dinner - #winning.
3. See the city. Literally see the city. The Melbourne Star is a must for every local, newbie and tourist. The Star projects seriously amazing views of Melbourne, overlooking the Yarra River, stunning city skyline and iconic buildings, allowing you to see the city in less than 20 minutes!
4. Get the Melbourne experience. The city is covered in art, and it's vital that you take the time to see some. Head to Centre Place or AC/DC Lane and get cultured (Melbourne style). These lanes boast some of Melbourne's best street artists and will also provide an awesome Instagram photo (yes, we know what you're really after).
5. EAT. AGAIN. Melbourne has been identified as the food capital of Australia, and with this title, comes an array of top quality restaurants. With so much choice, selecting somewhere to dine that falls under the budget can be difficult. Platform 270, located in the heart of the CBD, is a buzzing restaurant that dishes up an authentic taste of the city. Known for their high-quality steaks and other Aussie comfort classics, this is a must try for anyone ready to devour some modern Australian.
