What do you know about Melbourne ? If someone would have asked me this question few years back then I wouldn't have had much to answer except a few friends testimonials,who went there to study, that the city has a wonderful life.
As I started my blogging journey, I came across many travel bloggers and learned about many fabulous places in Melbourne which a person can visit. I also followed a blogger who used to post about random places and random people in Melbourne, which gave me a greater insight about the places in the city.
While going through the blogs, I also came to know about a dedicate website, Tourism Victoria website , to help people who want to visit Melbourne and Victoria. From the day I have visited their website, I have become more intrigued about knowing more about the city. I am listing down few of the places which fascinated me -
Philip Island - The place which attracted me the most about Melbourne was Philip Island. Australia is known for its bio-diversity and we find some really unique flora and fauna there which can't be found in any other place. I am an animal lover and this is definitely one of the most attractive place for me. Experience wild life personally would definitely be an amazing experience.
I have never got the chance to see penguins in there natural habitat. It would definitely be a great experience if I get to see them.
Melbourne Cricket ground - I think there can't be any Indian who would want to miss experiencing MCG in person. We are a cricketing nation and we worship our cricketers. We also love all the cricketing facts and stories. Hence it is a must to experience MCG.
St. Kilda Road - This place is the heart of Melbourne's culture. It has national gallery of Victoria and arts centre market.
Flinders quarter - This place contains bars, design stores, writers' studios, galleries and boutique fashion outlet.This is the home foe Melbourne creative elite.
