The Royal Botanical Gardens
Are you a fan of nature? If you want to travel around the world, then the chances are that you're very much in love with it. There's no better place to visit in Melbourne than the Royal Botanical Gardens. It is a vast and safe haven of nature within the city of Melbourne. You will quickly get to the Royal Botanical Gardens if you visit the city. In this place, there are more than 8,000 different plant species. There are several lakes, as well. Its awesome expansiveness means there is enough room for just about everyone visiting. So if you want to be one-to-one with nature, you must visit the Royal Botanical Gardens of Melbourne. 
See the city from a hot air balloon
It's always a pleasant experience to see a city from above. Planes are known to go very high up, to a point where you can't see anything clearly below. If you can schedule a ride in a hot air balloon, you will see a beautiful vista in the form of the entire city of Melbourne. The best part is that given the time of day – or the time of year, Melbourne may seem completely different. So, you can enjoy the same experience multiple times and always see something new that you haven't noticed before.
Watch movies at the Astor Theatre
Are you a fan of art, in specific, of movies? If you are, you could have a fantastic experience visiting the Astor Theater in Melbourne. The reason why this movie theater is so unique is that it has been in operation since the year 1936. As such, it retains quite a bit of the charm of the old golden days of cinema. Depending on the day of your visit, you may get cheap tickets to see some of the great classics of cinema culture. It's the perfect place to go on a date.
Ride a tram
Do you think that riding through the city of Melbourne on a tram will be boring? Think again. Melbourne has a highly well-designed tram system that tourists will greatly enjoy exploring. The best part is that if you play your cards right, you can use the tram system for free! Exploring the city by riding a tram is an excellent way to see the many beauties of Melbourne.
Visit the Australian Open
This one is for the fans of sports – and the fans of tennis, in particular. The Australian Open is one of the most significant world-class tennis tournaments. Some of the best tennis players have been known to compete here, including Nadal, Djokovic, Federer, and many others. But it's not just about the sport of tennis, either. You can visit many venues where the tournament takes place, and the entire area is buzzing with activity, making it an exciting place to visit.
Having a Blast in Melbourne, Australia
The chances are that you've understood by now that the beauties of Melbourne cannot be contained in an entire book – much less in an online article such as this one. So the best thing to do would be to go and visit this glorious, beautiful city yourself. We hope that you will have a fun time doing so!
