The capital of the state of Victoria, Melbourne is the second largest city in Australia. Also called the "City of Gardens," lush and filled with trees, Melbourne sits on the beautiful Yarra River, creating a stunning skyline where the sparkle and sheen of a modern city meets the flourishing beauty of nature.

Marvel at Sir Roy Burman Grounds's modern design at the Melbourne Arts Centre or visit the Rod Laver Arena, site of the Australian Open and named for one of the country's greatest athletes. Explore neighborhoods like the centrally located Chinatown or the Docklands situated on the city's waterfront.

High above the city on the 88th floor of the Eureka Tower, an observation deck will lay all of Melbourne out below you. A glass overhang called "The Edge" will give you a unique perspective of the city. It's definitely worth hopping off the bus at that stop.

Rainy Day
March 17, 2020
Rained heavily most of the day so we only got to see the Victoria Market as a foot excursion, spent the rest of the time staying dry onboard the bus

We used it several times in one day. Just what we needed. Used the handy map to get everywhere we needed to go. Great value!

A Very Nice Way to see Melbourne
February 01, 2020
The Hop-on Hop-off tour was better than we had expected because it was tailored for visitors from our ship and was therefore very convenient for us. For example, we did not have to finish the St. Kilda tour to go back to the starting point at Federation Square, but were taken directly there, with commentary on the sights along the way. We returned to the port via the initial route of the St. Kilda tour. The driver was extremely helpful and guided us as to times to meet a bus to return and where certain attractions were located. This was all for a very reasonable price. Federation Square and the walk along the River was very nice. I recommend this tour.

A little disappointing...
January 07, 2020
Melbourne itself was a very nice stop - Queen's Market was very interesting. However, the Hop-on-Hop-off bus was an old bus with wire mesh on the outside of the windows of the lower level. Unable to take pictures. Later when there was room, we moved up to the top level which was better.
