Spring is here with a bang. Actually, not with a bang but we’ve had crazy amounts of sunshine lately, right? These are our 5 favourite places to go or things to do in Melbourne to take in spring.
5. Suburb Tourism
This is exactly what it sounds like. The thing about living in Melbourne is that you kind of get stuck in your own suburb. So have we to some extent and therefore promised ourselves to venture outside of our comfort zone and explore new areas of Melbourne, like when Sandra visited Yarraville. And I so prefer doing this when it’s sunny and warm as compared to cold and damp, don’t you?
4. Trailer Park at Village Melbourne
I know you think we’re repeating ourselves maybe a bit too much, but we simply can’t help ourselves. Last weekend we somehow (inadvertently, I promise!) ended up having lunch there both Saturday and Sunday. If it’s sunny it’s simply amazing.
3. Day Trips!
There’s a world outside of Melbourne. There, I said it. Day trips outside of Melbourne is probably the best way to spend a Sunday. Or a Saturday evening. Last Saturday we left Melbourne (I know! Even on a Saturday night!) and headed to Bendigo. And believe it or not – it was a pretty amazing night. Partly because of the incredibly spring blooms we encountered outside the Bendigo Art Gallery. We’ll share more day trip and weekend trip recommendations in the weeks to come.
Spring is the time when we can start enjoying picnics again! I assume that you’ll just pick the park next to you, that’s what we do. Sometimes if it’s especially good weather and we have a bit of extra time we do make the extra effort and make our way to the Botanical Gardens. If you go there – stay on the lookout for hungry swans. I have been followed by them more than once…
1. All of Melbourne’s Rooftop Bars
We love ourselves a good rooftop bar. You’ll find us enjoying the widespread view of Naked in the Sky, sipping fancy cocktails at the Lui Bar, or taking in the cool ambience at the Curtin House Rooftop Bar. As long as it has good views, some sunshine and stuff to drink – we’re game.
