There is nothing better than summer in Melbourne. There are endless options of things you can do but having that many options can make it overwhelming when having to pick what to do. But no matter what you like doing, you will most definitely be able to find something that will fill your heart with joy while walking the streets of Melbourne.

Visit The Beaches of Melbourne

See A Sport You Like

As we all know, Melbourne also goes by the name “sporting capital of Australia” and that is why you must at least see one sport that you like. The most popular spot that is hosted during summertime is the Australian Open as well as the Boxing Day Test. Even if you are not so fan of those two sports that doesn’t mean that you shouldn't take the opportunity to have fun. But if you don't want to spend money on a sport that you don't like you can have fun around the venue because they have free concerts near the arena during those times.

Have Beers In The Great Outdoors

Even though Melbourne isn't that blessed with beaches, it has some of the most amazing outdoor pubs where you can spend your summer days. There are so many different pubs you can hop between but the most popular ones are Madame Brussels and the Naked for Satan if you are more for a garden vibe then definitely visit the Corner Hotel. But if you are also interested more in some al fresco bars you can go down by the Yarra behind Federation Square in the city and have some fun.

Shop And Eat at The Queen Victoria’s Night Market

There is no better way to get to know a city than exploring its night markets. If it is too warm for you to go out during the day there is no better way to get to know Melbourne than going to the Queen Victoria’s Night Market and tasting amazing foods and buying little knick-knacks. It is the best place you can explore Melbourne’s culture as there are endless rows of food and fashion stalls as well as festival bars. After you have explored the market, if you are of legal age, make your way down to a Melbourne brothel and experience Melbourne in a whole different way.

Visit The Sealife Aquarium

If you are someone who likes sea life and visiting popular day time attractions Sea Life Aquarium is the place to be. There you will be able to see penguins, coral caves as well as beautiful mermaid gardens all while being able to interact with all the different sea life.

Go To The Australia Day Parade

Australia Day Parade is the best way you can experience Melbourne and its culture as well as lifestyle. If you are someone who likes crows and fun, spending the day with locals who will be dancing their way down Swanston Street in the name of celebrating the land they live on, it is the best event for you.

As you are going to be exploring Melbourne during summer, make sure that you are wearing appropriate clothing such as light dresses or loose cotton t-shirts as it is scorching hot.
