Amongst the abundance of history, gardens and thriving laneway cafes, Melbourne boasts some of the most breathtaking moments in its many free things to do. Located inside the CBD and surrounding areas, this city is the perfect getaway option for those on a budget.

The National Gallery of Victoria

With an impressive collection of pieces from the likes of Drysdale and Constable, there’s an array of spectacular works to be seen in this exclusive gallery. Located at the infamous Federation Square, the NGV includes some of the most awe-inspiring artworks from across the globe.

Get on your bike

Melbourne’s government-backed bike scheme was launched in 2010 and gives visitors and locals the chance to hop on a bike and tour the city as they please. The first 30 minutes are free – enough time for you to make it to the other side of the CBD – cruise along the Yarra River or whizz over to Southbank.

St Kilda Beach

The gushing waves, the picturesque surroundings of Luna Park – what’s not to like about St Kilda’s beaches? For those who quickly tire of the city scene, heading out to St Kilda can offer a lot more than just sand and water. Stroll through the Sunday markets or head out into the Adventure Playground (perfect for the “big kids” too)

City Circle Tram

As a true Melbourne icon, this tram offers a free journey around the CBD’s city loop, with informative commentary to back it up. Enjoy the waterfront environment and experience the Docklands – all from the comfort of your seat on board this 1923 heritage treasure.

The Royal Botanic Gardens

Nothing quite says Melbourne like these stunning grounds. Dating back to 1857, these gardens boast an abundance of beautiful flora, including man-made creeks and a lake in the centre.  Perfect for a family picnic on a sunny day out.
