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.

Jewish Holocaust Centre

The Jewish Holocaust Museum and Research Centre is an institution dedicated to the memory of the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945.

Reviewed By BepeAustralia - Australia

Melbourne has the largest Jewish Holocaust survivor community outside of Israel, I believe, and this museum is an excellent showcase for the horrors experienced during WWII. Suitable for all ages with guides able to explain what you are seeing, including some who were even incarcerated. There are films as well as exhibits so there is something for everyone.

St Kilda Pier

St Kilda Pier is a Melbourne landmark and has traditionally been one of Melbourne's most popular tourist attractions. Providing panoramic views of the Melbourne skyline and Port Phillip Bay, the pier is a popular destination for strolling, cycling, in-line skating and fishing. St Kilda's Little Penguin colony is well-known for making the breakwater its home, and is a popular tourist attraction. You can view the Little Penguins from the viewing platform at St Kilda Pier or by charter boat. St Kilda Pier has safe wheelchair access, lighting, handrails, drinking Fountains, toilets, barbeques and a picnic and playground area. Only 5km from Melbourne CBD, St Kilda is well serviced by public transport. Take the tram from the heart of the city. Alternatively, car parking is available in the vicinity of the foreshore.

We had a great afternoon walk along the pier and the breakwater. I thought we weren't going to see any penguins during the day, but we saw two - and plenty of orange starfish, jellyfish, other marine creatures and birds. Be sure to bring a jacket or jumper though, because it can obviously get quite cool and windy.

Rippon Lea

Unfortunately we arrived too late to go on a tour of the house but had time to explore the Gardens. An excellently presented site with good botanical diversity and an amazing shade house. We are looking forward to returning and viewing the house.

St. Kilda Beach

Long, well-maintained and clean beach just outside Melbourne, lined with markets, amusement parks and nightclubs.

Reviewed By DUCOURAY - Brighton, Australia

St Kilda beach is a place to go on sunny week end if you like crowded beach with a lot of young people everywhere. Nice turf to lay at 50 meters from the sand. Good places to buy a refreshing can or ice cream and good paths to walk around. Check the program there is some events quite often. And just behinds you will enjoy gaming at Luna Park and shopping at Auckland street. Enjoy! Helpful/like me

Acland Street, St Kilda

Reviewed By tommomelbourne - Melbourne, Australia

We havent visiting Acland Street for several years now but have finally returned.
We dined at the lovely Velludo Restaurant which is near the last tram stop in Acland St St Kilda.
You will find many great restaurants, boutiques, supermarkets and the famous coffee shops with spectacularly presented sweets. Dining alfresco is very pleasant and a great place to dine, enjoy a drink and watch the local characters.
Unfortunately you will find beggars who will politely ask you for money whilst you are dining....most annoying.

Visit Melbourne's inner-city oasis. Over 10,000 plant species from around the world are presented in a kaleidoscope of colour and texture. Sweeping lawns, tranquil lakes and majestic trees are home to an amazing range of wildlife.

Reviewed By CupcakeSue - Melbourne

A stroll through Melbournes Botanical Gardens is a must. The beautiful old trees, swans on the lakes, manicured lawns and variety of specific displays create a beautiful serene ambience...a very manageable stroll or quick tram ride from Melbournes busy city.

Great stadium used not only for cricket but mainly for Aussie rules football. Tour the changing rooms, tactics room, ice baths etc. and get to walk through the hallowed Long Room. Great guide.
