If you are someone who loves traveling and you plan on visiting Melbourne soon, then you should know there are plenty of things to see there. Many people who consider going into a relaxing vacation in order to recharge their batteries will pick Melbourne, because it’s a place that offers some unique attractions to visit. Below this article will let you know more about the best Melbourne attractions you should visit.

The Shrine of RemembranceThe Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne, Australia

This is actually a war memorial and it was built not only to stand as evidence to those who died in the Great Wart between nineteen fourteen and nineteen eighteen, but also in order to commemorate their lives. The memorial was built in 1934 and it was inspired by one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. When you will reach the visitor center you should know there are 2 galleries of regularly changing exhibitions, the Sanctuary which contains the Stone of Remembrance and the Crypt.

If there’s something you should certainly not miss out on, that is the Ray of Light Ceremony which takes places once in 30 minutes. In this ceremony a ray of light will shine on the Stone of Remembrance in order to are-enact the way light shines on it at eleven AM each year on November eleventh. After seeing this wonderful ceremony, you can choose to go up the stairs and be let in on a wonderful view of the city.

The Royal Botanic GardensMelbourne The Royal Botanic Gardens

When you will see these gardens and the wonders they hold, you will never want to leave this place. The good news is that they’re also easily accessible, being at a very short walk from the city’s center, along the Yarra river. If you have young kids it’s a must that you visit the amazing Children’s Garden and at the same time don’t forget to take advantage of the free guided tour that’s available every day.

Parliament HouseParliament House Melbourne, Australia

This is actually a building that was constructed in the time of the gold rush, so when you will go inside it you will be amazed of how much golden surfaces you’ll see. Each week there are forty five minutes tours here so you should not miss out on them when you come visiting Melbourne. What’s great is that after you arrive here, you may also visit the Queens Hall, the Library, the Upper and also Lower House Chambers.

Penguins at St Kilda PierPenguins at St Kilda Pier

I don’t know whether you will believe this or not, yet there are many people living in Melbourne who don’t know about this place. Basically, if you will go right to the end of the pier before dusk you will see many penguins coming home after they have fished all day long. These penguins are identical to the ones you pay to see at Philip Island, which takes a few hours to get to by car.

With that being said, it seems that if you want to visit Melbourne, these attractions should definitely not be missed, especially if you love exploring new and amazing places. Have fun!
