Major Events and Festivals

Melbourne Food & Wine Festival

Indulge in some of Victoria’s best food and drink by planning your Armidale to Melbourne flights around the city’s Food & Wine Festival. Events are held at locations all over the city for three weeks each March. Attend cooking master classes run by top chefs, taste food from all different international cuisines, try some of Victoria’s best local wines, and enjoy plenty of live entertainment throughout the few weeks. You can also try special menus at some of Melbourne’s most popular restaurants.

Melbourne Fringe Festival

Melbourne Fringe is one of the best arts festivals to hit the Victorian capital each year. There are more than 450 shows and exhibits across all different genres, so there’s something to appeal to everyone. All different areas of the arts are represented at Melbourne Fringe, including comedy, theatre, music, visual art, cabaret, circus, and more. You can attend different Fringe shows by travelling on flights from Armidale to Melbourne between mid- to late September.

AFL Grand Final

If you’re a fan of Australian Rules Football, you’ll love the atmosphere in the city over the AFL Grand Final weekend. The two best teams from the Aussie Rules season face off for the AFL premiership cup. Although the teams involved may come from different parts of Australia, the AFL Grand Final is traditionally held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Purchase tickets to the game if you can, but in case tickets are all sold out, you’ll have a great time watching the big game from the pubs around Melbourne too. Plan your trip to Melbourne over the last weekend in September, and get your hotel room booked early – this is a busy time to visit the city.

Public Transport and How to Get Around

Public transport is widely available across the Victorian capital, starting from the moment your Armidale to Melbourne flights arrive. Hop on the SkyBus for a quick transfer to Southern Cross Station in the CBD.

Melbourne is home to a vast bus network and a system of 17 train routes. Each train route is available to catch from the CBD, and most of them travel to each of the city’s main stations on the City Loop.

Trams are the most popular methods of transportation in Melbourne and also some of the best ways to get around. The network – which is the largest tram network in the world – operates across 24 routes. The City Circle tram in the centre is especially handy for tourists as it loops around to the CBD’s most famous landmarks and plays a running informational commentary.

Public transport and walking are the best ways to get around central Melbourne, but a car can come in handy for day trips. You can reserve a car with Webjet after booking your flights from Armidale to Melbourne and plan a visit to spots like Great Ocean Road, Wilsons Promontory, and Mornington Peninsula.

Landmarks and Monuments You Can’t Miss

Flinders Street Station

Flinders Street Station is one of Melbourne’s most iconic landmarks. It’s historically significant in several ways – it was the first train station built in Australia back in 1854, and it was once the busiest railway station in the world. It’s still super busy and ranks as the busiest passenger train station in the Southern Hemisphere. You’ll likely pass through Flinders Street at some point if you’ll be getting around by train, or you can head over and view it from the outside. The station has an impressive Victorian design and still features a row of clocks from the 1860s that continues to display train departure times.

Shrine of Remembrance

The Shrine of Remembrance is located at the corner of the Royal Botanic Gardens and acts as a memorial to the Australians who lost their lives in war. View the exterior of the impressive monument, then head inside to learn more about Australia’s past involvement with wars. Visitors can take a 45-minute guided tour of the Shrine of Remembrance or enjoy a self-guided wander through the galleries, crypt, and sanctuary. Before you leave, head to the Shrine’s balcony for a beautiful view over the Botanic Gardens and Melbourne skyline.

Eureka Tower

The observation deck at the Eureka Tower shows off one of the best city views you’ll find while holidaying on Armidale to Melbourne flights. It’s the highest public observation deck in the Southern Hemisphere at 285 metres (935 feet), and the Eureka Tower itself is one of the tallest in Australia. Head up to take in 360° views over the city and out toward Port Phillip Bay. Daredevils can also get an extra thrill by going onto the Edge – a glass cube that extends from the Eureka Skydeck.
