7 Perfect Days

Destination(s): Melbourne

I'm heading to Melbourne and desire 'a week in the life of...' experience. Explore Melbourne's culinary led culture, see and be seen at one (or, a few) of the thousands of cafes and bars, watch a movie in the park and finally, do the Aussie thing and head up to the beach. read more about 7 Perfect Days

Melbourne's Zoo, conveniently located just minutes from the CBD, is the third oldest in the world and one of the city's most popular attractions. Cages are rarely used as most of the animals are in large open compounds, and the botanic garden type setting make it an relaxing stroll for families in particular. There are over 320 species on view, including iconic Australian animals such as koalas, kangaroos, platypuses as well as those from further afield such as gorillas, elephants and lions. Animals lovers should try the "behind the scenes" encounters where they can assist in feeding and cleaning animals. A special highlight and ideal for a BYO picnic is that in the summer months from January to March live music performances are held on the zoo grounds. read more about Melbourne Zoo

With a focus on exhibiting rather than collecting, the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) is dedicated to the promotion of innovative, evocative, creative and challenging art.

Designed by Melbourne based architects, Wood Marsh, the building itself is an iconic masterpiece, the rustic steel mass a landmark in Melbourne's inner city art precinct.

ACCA hosts five exhibition seasons each year by both local and international artists. Their exhibitions remain innovative through commission; artists are allowed encouraged to produce new work specifically for ACCA, a process that fosters creativity and experimentation.

Be sure to visit the ACCA shop to peruse current art journals and publications and even take a little piece of art home with you. read more about Australian Centre for Contemporary Art

Snuggle up to your sweetheart, or possibly a possum, for some outdoor cinema at Melbourne's Moonlight Cinemas. If the on-screen action isn't enough to capture your attention, enjoy the skyline views and the lush surrounds of Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens.

An eclectic film program showcasing cult classics as well as new releases, the Moonlight Cinema is the perfect place to welcome summer with a picnic spread, some champagne, and a rented beanbag if you're ill prepared for the garden floor seating arrangement.

The sweet rose breeze definitely pushes a romantic element, but the Moonlight Cinema is also frequented by larger groups of friends, enjoying a sunset six-pack and the permission to eat noisily and whisper during films without the glare of someone in a black beret in the next row down.

Only a hop, skip and a jump from Melbourne's CBD, take the No. 8 tram from Flinders Street Station and remember your mosquito repellent. Tickets can be booked in advance or purchase at the gate. read more about Moonlight Cinema Melbourne
