Private Jet Charter | Melbourne, Australia

Hire a private jet to Melbourne and experience the capital of Victoria. Known as Australia’s cultural – and coffee – capital, Melbourne has a thriving arts community, a wealth of attractions and jaw-dropping scenery.

Here are 9 great Melbourne attractions:

Queen Victoria Market

Located at the corner of Victoria and Elizabeth Streets and open five days a week (Tuesday, Thursday to Sunday) visitors will find leather goods, homeware, handicrafts, authentic Aussie souvenirs, flowers, clothing and much more. The Market also has the widest range of organic produce in the city, as well as meat and deli halls.

Royal Botanic Gardens

The Royal Botanic Gardens feature more than 10,000 species of plant life from around the globe. Take a picnic and enjoy the peaceful lawns, lakes and beautiful trees. Stop for lunch at Jardin Tan and savour French-Indonesian cuisine. Or take high tea at The Terrace café, which is also a popular wedding venue.

Eureka Skydeck 88

In just 38 seconds, ride the fastest elevator in the Southern Hemisphere to unbeatable 360-degree views across Melbourne. At nearly 300m high you’ll spot Port Phillip Bay, Albert Park Lake and even the Dandenong Ranges. Step into The Edge for an experience suspended in a glass cube 88 floors above the city streets.

City Circle Tram

The City Circle Tram is a unique – and free – way to see the Docklands, as well as Melbourne’s inner city attractions. There’s a commentary to help you spot Parliament House, Federation Square, Princess Theatre, the City Museum and much more. Hop on and off at the specially marked stops along the route.

Block Arcade

Modeled on the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, the 1892-built heritage Block Arcade is a popular listed shopping arcade located on Melbourne’s Golden Mile. Don’t miss the impressive mosaic floor, the magnificent glass dome and take time out for tea and cake at the Hopetoun Tearooms.

12 Apostles – Great Ocean Road

One of the best day trips out of Melbourne is a 275km drive to the famous 12 Apostles on the Great Ocean Road. These dramatic limestone stacks rise out of the Southern Ocean like grand sentinels, although gradual erosion means that there are only 8 apostles standing today. Take a walk down the Gibson Steps onto the sand for a full sensory experience of these magnificent monoliths.

Philip Island Nature Park

An easy two-hour drive from Melbourne, Philip Island is a spectacular day out. The sanctuary is a refuge to fur seals, sea birds and the famous fairy penguins. Wait until the sun goes down and watch the little penguins come out of the water and make their way along the sand to their burrows.

Melbourne Cricket Ground

The Melbourne Cricket Ground is a must for cricket fans. The famous MCG hosted the first-ever Test match, and the 1992 World Cup Final as well as the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games. Take a tour of the National Sports Museum with its priceless collection of Aussie sporting memorabilia.

Puffing Billy Steam Railway

Another superb day out is a trip on this vintage steam train to the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. Enjoy a traditional Aussie ‘billy’ tea while the Puffing Billy steam engine takes you through cool leafy forests and a stop at the Healesville Sanctuary with its resident kangaroos, koalas and wombats.
