With our service allowing you to be dropped conveniently at a destination of your choice, Stream Shuttle can help coordinate your day or night out. So without further ado, here’s our 5 favourite things to do in Melbourne.
#1 See a New View of Melbourne at The Hills Rooftop Bar
This gorgeous little setting isn’t a far-off destination, needing only a short stroll down La Trobe Street & a journey up a few flights of stairs. If the weather allows, you’ll find yourself atop an old complex situated above a theatre and a bar.
The decor of The Hills is a little crafty, with furniture made from apple crates, picnic tables & lounge chairs. This is perfect match for the quaint atmosphere it offers, pair that with the 360 degree view of the city and you’re sure to find the peace and quiet you need in the heart of the CBD.
#2 Take a Punt in the Royal Botanic Gardens
If nature is more your thing, then you can’t beat a relaxing boat ride through the Royal Botanic Gardens. This one is perfect for the couple’s holiday as they have a minimum two adult booking in place. It’s hard to describe the beauty, but we can guarantee it’s one you need to experience.
From $50aud you can take a private boat ride throughout Ornamental Lake situated right within the Royal Botanic Gardens. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, needed some downtime or just want to relax, then the serene boat ride will be ideal for you.
#3 Put the World at your Feet with the Eureka Skydeck
If you’re afraid of heights, then this one might not be for you, however it could also be the perfect place to face your fears. Eureka Skydeck is the highest public vantage point in the Southern Hemisphere and it lives up to that expectation. Up on the 88th floor you’ve find a spectacular view of the City of Melbourne plus a special viewing deck with glass floor, which is the ideal place to put everything in perspective.
If experiencing grand heights isn’t your thing, then you can head one floor up and be treated an incredible dining experience provided by the team on the top floor of the Eureka Tower.
#4 Experience the History of the Cocktail
Looking for something a bit more extravagant? Well then go no further than 1806 Bar. Named after the year that “Defined the Cocktail”. With an excellent attention to detail, the staff and venue put on a fantastic display for all the senses. Having won the award “The World’s Best Cocktail Menu”, you know you’ll be in the right hands.
