Please use my five-day Melbourne itinerary as a jumping-off point if you're considering a trip to Australia but haven't yet. If you have already gone and, like me, are already planning a trip to see more of Melbourne, we hope this puts a bit more heat into all those plans to get you out visiting Melbourne CBD and adjacent locations.
There are numerous day tours and day trips in Melbourne to the Ocean Road, Phillip Islands, Yarra Wine Valley, and many other popular destinations. A short flight will take you to nearby destinations like the Barrier Reef or New Zealand.
Therefore, how many nights in Melbourne do you need? We recommend spending at least three days in Melbourne, but five days would be ideal for taking your time and seeing as much as possible without feeling rushed. In addition, we'll soon post a seven-day Melbourne schedule with even more flexibility to complement our Australia plan for five days in Melbourne.
FAQs About Melbourne
Yes, Melbourne is one of those places you need to get set for packing for four seasons in one day, every day!
We recommend including the following for your Melbourne outfit:
- Cotton t-shirts.
- Cropped jeans.
- Dresses or skirts.
- Cotton trousers.
- Comfortable walking shoes.
Jeans are always popular and will serve as a versatile base for your wardrobe. Wear them with cool layers such as a t-shirt and light jacket for the summer (December, January, February) or warmer ones, e.g. a long-sleeved shirt and sweater in the winter (June, July and August).
You'll need a jacket or a comfy sweater to stay warm in the cooler climate and something underneath so that you can peel off anything heavy when inside, in heated areas. It's a great time of year to escape to the alpine region, with snowfields as close as a 2.5-hour drive away.
According to a study published in the Journal of Happiness Studies, your vacations should be at least 8-14 days long, with the ideal length being eight days. The study looked at many respondent's experiences while on their vacations.
It's no wonder that Melbourne consistently rates as the most liveable city in the world. Numerous public transport options, low crime rates, plenty of career opportunities, a fantastic arts and cultural scene, excellent universities and a relaxed lifestyle makes Melbourne the place for anyone and everyone.
Advice on Your Trip to Melbourne
- You can arrive at either Tullamarine Airport or Avalon Airport. However, the former is the more convenient option due to its central location in Melbourne.
- Ride the Train and bus Airport Shuttle via Tullamarine Airport into the heart of Melbourne. Getting into the city in this manner is both swift and inexpensive. The Southern Cross Terminal and Southbank or Docks are both convenient drop-off points. There, a free shuttle will take you to your hotel. Stops for the SkyBus can be seen from here.
- Ride-sharing services and taxis are also available if you prefer not to use public transportation; the cost will range from AU$ 55 to AU$ 65, depending on your final destination. And you'll be happy to know Uber is readily accessible throughout Melbourne! So you're free to utilise them. However, we found their prices somewhat high.
- Free rides on the Melbourne Circle Tram were a huge time saver for me during our trip. This brown tram line will get you anywhere you need across the city centre. It makes a full roundabout once every 48 minutes, and it only takes 12 minutes to arrive.
- You'll need a Myki card to ride any tram in Melbourne other than the city circle tram. Many stores, including 7/11, sell refills and new cards for me.
- It's important to pack for a wide range of climatic conditions, as Melbourne is renowned for its extremes.
– The weather in Melbourne may change in the blink of an eye. For example, in April, we saw the sun, the rain, and the chilly wind, all in a single day.
- Bring sturdy footwear since you will be doing a lot of walking in Melbourne; this is one of the reasons why people adore the city. Please take my word for it. You should get out and about and walk while you're here. I walked the equivalent three days' worth of steps during my first day in Melbourne: 30,000!

Melbourne Itinerary (and Why It's Perfect for Five Days)
Even if you're well-prepared, a little jet lag is possible due to Australia's great distance. In light of that, the first day of this five-day Melbourne itinerary is designed to be relaxed and stress-free so that you can enjoy the city's attractions and figure out where you'll need to be to begin your day trips.
This blog post might help whittle down your Melbourne itinerary for two days or Melbourne itinerary for three days if you're short on time. It's recommended that everybody visiting Melbourne spend at least one day touring the Great Ocean Road.
During ten days, you can also take good rest days between those day trips and day tours, which can be exhausting when you return late in the evening, so my next post with a seven days schedule would be one to check out if you have the time.
First Day in Melbourne's Central Business District: Sightseeing
Take it easy on your first day in Melbourne and see the sights. Then, get out and explore the Melbourne Central Business District. Federation Square is a great spot to check out because it is home to a wide variety of bars, interesting architecture, and exciting events.
Numerous performances, pop-up exhibitions, and free workshops may be found at the Melbourne Festivals in October, the Melbourne Wine and Food Festival in March, and the Melbourne International Theatre Festival in March. In addition, Adelaide Street and Context, which occurs at Lane's intersection, is right here. Residents of Melbourne are urged to join in on the city's reputation as a hub for street art.
Some of the city's best open-air galleries may be found in Hosier and Rutledge lanes and Centre Place, a hub of activity and colour. The streets of Hosier Lane are open to the public, but the best way to learn about the stories behind the artwork is on a guided street art tour.
Explore Federation Square, stop by the Victoria National Gallery and then go down to Saint Kilda Road to visit the Shrine for Remembrance. When you follow this, you'll arrive at the Melbourne Botanical Garden. You may take your time wandering around here; everyone here is laid back. You can relax in the nearby park after eating at the nearby cafe.
Following the riverfront, you may stroll back toward Fed Square and Southbank from the Botanic Gardens. A cosmopolitan crowd frequents Southbank's theatres and galleries. The contemporary Melbourne Recital Center, which features classical music performances, and the historic Malthouse theatre, housed in a refurbished brewery, may be found in this area.
The Crown Casino precinct on Southbank features nightclubs, food courts, and high-end retail stores. You can enjoy a meal at one of the many riverside restaurants or a craft beer at one of the many bars in converted freight sheds along the bustling riverbank walkways. Before our afternoon trip to the Botanical Gardens, we visited one of the many rooftop bars.
Day One Itinerary Overview of Melbourne Attractions
- Locations in Melbourne's Central Business District include Flinders Street and Hosier Lane, the Remembrance Shrine, Botanical Gardens, Yarra River, and Southbank.
Visit the Great Ocean Road on Day 2 of your trip.
The tour must be taken if you are in Melbourne. It would be a shame to miss a chance to travel down Australia's famous Ocean Road and see some of the country's most stunning coastal towns and breathtaking beaches. If you only have five days to visit Melbourne, we recommend splitting your time between the city and Great Ocean Highway, where you can see the coastline and the Twelve Apostles. You can get an amazing look at the ocean from Melbourne as it crashes against the Great Ocean Highway's towering reefs and cliffs.
Returning soldiers carved two hundred forty-three kilometres of the route from steep outcrops to a beautiful seaside road, making this memorial the largest in the world. There are many tours to choose from, some of which show you the sights. At the same time, others also give you a chance to sample some of Australia's most well-known cuisine and learn about the rich culture of Aboriginal people, who have lived in this region for more than 40 thousand years.
While on a helicopter ride, you may get a birds-eye perspective of the famous Twelve Apostles. My blog entry on my 12 Apostles Flight of Wonder helicopter tour is available for your reading pleasure. In addition to the Otway Rainforest and other popular attractions, many excursions also visit the stunning Loch Ard Gorge. You can add snorkelling trips to explore the coral reefs and surfing lessons if you plan to stay for a while.
A Preview of Great Ocean Road Attractions for Melbourne's Second Day
- Cities along the coast, such as Torquay, may be reached by the Great Ocean Road's famous "Arch of Beauty,"
- Limestone cliffs of the Twelve Apostles, the horrific shipwreck at Loch Ard Gorge, the charred ruins of London Bridge's razorback, and the storied past of the GOR GOR Lighthouse.
- Koalas Need Our Help!
- National Park of Great Otway
The third day will consist of a brunch in Melbourne and a trip to either Saint Kitts Beach or Philip Island.
After travelling all day yesterday and seeing the sites along Great Ocean Road, today is a good time to relax and take it easy. To that end, it makes sense to begin one's day by visiting some of Melbourne's great brunch establishments.
Melburnians are passionate about their coffee and place a premium on quality. Melbourne Brunches are posted on the site to suggest where to eat in Melbourne.
Take in Melbourne, Australia's Victorian National Gallery Building, recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The magnificent National Gallery Building is the sole Great Hall still in use today; it was built for exhibitions and continues to serve that function. Now a museum, it's a must-see if you're planning a trip to Melbourne.
The evening's suggestions won't come until later, so you can relax and enjoy the day if you like.
You may see the Penguins Parade at no cost on St. Kilda's beach at dusk. We arrived at the dock a little before sunset and had dinner there. Then, after dark, the small penguins waddle back to the coast. Photographs may be taken, but flash photography is prohibited.
This is a low-cost option for seeing the critters. Visit the Phillip Island tour to view a larger colony and a boat excursion.

Visit the Aboriginal Community Centre to hear the history of the region's first settlers and learn more about the indigenous people who have lived there for thousands of years.
Halls Gap is a charming town that may be explored on foot, including a stroll to the nearby Boroka viewpoint. Next, stop by the Verandas, Jaws to Death, or Reed's viewpoint to take the breathtaking scenery. Finally, visit the breathtaking Mackenzie Falls on your journey back to Melbourne after hiking the stunning trail there.
Day 4 Itinerary Highlights in the Grampians, Melbourne
- Aboriginal Cultural Center of the National Park
- Observation Deck in Boroka
- Specifically, the Halls Gap

Fifth Day: Markets and Final Shopping Attempt
Day 5 in Melbourne will consist of more relaxing. The day can be relaxed and spent in whatever way you like if you're leaving Melbourne today. It's up to you whether you want to use your free day to see something new in Melbourne or revisit an attraction you saw on a previous trip.
If your plans take you out of Melbourne late at night, like me, you may have the whole day to sightsee. You can either take a day trip or visit the Melbourne markets. My companion drove me to see Gunnamatta Beach and Arthur's Seat, a mountain with breathtaking views of Melbourne. Yarra Valley was another location that we visited. An excursion to the Yarra Valley wineries is an absolute must for every oenophile.
