Nice that the city it's on free trams, especially in a time when people are lining up for your money - for example try parking in the city!
There are a few reasonable parking buildings that will not fleece you, then you can ride the tram around to where you wanna go for free.
Also there's the nostalgic side. These are old well restored trams, a bit rickity and noisy, not exactly my style, but I can see lots of people appreciate such things, so has to almost be a must if your coming to admire the Victorian era of the city.

Fast cars, slow-food and spirited drives in the beautiful Yarra Valley, Victoria. Prancing Horse deliver an exhilarating range of supercar driving experiences featuring the latest Ferrari 458 Italia plus a range of different exotics, starting from the beautiful Yarra Valley in Victoria.

Reviewed By Ian-Annie - Melbourne, Australia

We had the drive and dine experience with the Ferrari 388. 300 km on the clock. Matt was very personable and relaxed, introduced the car thoroughly, then led us on a beautiful drive into the Yarra Valley hills. Lots of twisty roads and nice straight sections to fully experience the car. An amazing drive. Started nervously, became used to the house Car as we drove, and could have driven for much longer.
Followed this with a delicious lunch at TarraWarra.
Would thoroughly recommend.

Xcapade Escape Rooms

Escape Rooms are an exciting & challenging real life experience that enable small groups of people to use clues within and sometimes beyond the room to solve puzzles that allow them to escape the room.

Reviewed By afamlonga - Melbourne, Australia

We had such a great time trying to decipher the riddles and clues. The clues themselves were very well thought out, and I am surprised we actually cracked all of them, as they were so clever! Great thing to do with a family, an hour...MoreHi Afamlonga, Thanks for taking time and reviewed us!! We glad to hear you all had an amazing time in our escape room and we hope to see you again soon.

We have been to many wineries in the Yarra Valley as we live closeby, but it was lovely to be picked up and driven by someone else. Our driver/ guide David was very knowledgeable and took us to a couple of wineries that we had never been to which was great, as well as others that were favourites. We had lunch at De Bortolis which is always wonderful food and service, we even tasted and bought some cheese from their special cheese room. It was a bonus that there was just four of us plus driver on the tour, so it was very personal and in a most comfortable vehicle. Communication with the company was reliable and timely. The other couple on the tour with us were from the US and they had booked it from there with no problem. Thanks to all concerned for a great day and especially my daughter for the gift voucher.

Diamond Valley Railway

Reviewed By phebianMelbourne - Melbourne

Brought our 5 year old grand-daughter here (and her older sister) for a birthday treat. After a reasonably long ride around corners, through stations, across Bridges and through tunnels; we asked our birthday girl what she wanted to do next. The reply was
"Please may we do it again, but on another train." We did and they were just as excited the second time around. What a fantastic place! There are picnic facilities, a children's playground, horse rides, and a van that sells enormous gelati ice creams!. Definitely worth a visit.

Trees Adventure

Reviewed By AshleighJade141 - Melbourne, Australia

The first thing I have to say is that the setting is simply stunning. It boasts amazing views during the activity course that make it completely worth it, even for someone with a fear of heights!
I've previously done the course at Arthur's seat; it was cramped, not challenging and clearly targeted towards short, young kids. The course at Belgrave was significantly better in every way; there was a wide range of difficulty levels, I wasn't uncomfortable or forced to contort my body in awkward ways, there was scenic views and more choice available.
10/10 would highly recommend!

Sun Theatre Yarraville

Reviewed By rjimlad - Melbourne, Australia

The Sun is a restored Art Deco suburban theatre; now a cinema. It has three (I think) cinemas of differing sizes and each are rather beautiful. The seats are new and are deep and comfortable with big wide arms to rest your drinks on.
It gets very crowded in the foyer and you need to book, especially on half-price night. Right outside the main entrance is a little piazza on the Yarraville strip where people have picnics or visit the adjoining restaurants. It's a great locality and the Sun occupies a central place in it.

We had a wonderful 3 day experience with Sea Kayak Australia, exploring beautiful Wilson's Prom. They were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and professional right from the beginning of our booking until the end of our trip. It was an unbelievable experience and couldn't recommend them highly...MoreI am glad you had a good time. Dane is great value and the scenery at the north end of the prom is remote and beautiful. Please come again on another sea kayak tour.

Victoria State Rose Garden

Reviewed By Mister8888 - Hong Kong, China

Even if you are not a flower aficionado (and I am not) this is an amazing place to take in everything that's amazing about roses. Variegated colours, amazing intensity of colours, small to big blooms, trees or bowers this has everything. Your camera will be clicking away. Just remember rises are seasonal do do your homework. Nice cafe here to close out the visit
