With so many great things to do you might be wondering where to start, but don’t worry we’re here to point you in the right direction.

If you’re stuck for something to do with the kids, then don’t fret, you’ll easily be able to find something new to keep them entertained. The aquarium is great for any animal lovers and the city’s adventure parks, with their flumes and go-karts can make for an exciting day out for children and parents alike. If you’d like something with a little more educational value, then the city’s museums could be a good pick, with the Melbourne Museum’s giant wombat bones being a standout exhibit to see.

Melburnians take pride in supporting the great local restaurants and the city’s famous food truck scene. Throughout the city, you’ll be able to find some excellent trucks othering a plethora of delicious foods. There is even a permanent food truck and beer garden that has lots of great options to choose from. If you’re not quite ready for a meal, then you can always try one of the city’s many local coffee shops and enjoy its claim to fame as one of the best café locations in the world.

Victoria can be a lovely state to explore, and Melbourne is no exception with its historic laneways and vibrant street art a real sight to see. A visit to the exhibits in the National Gallery of Victoria or the films in the Australian Centre for the Moving Image are perfect to get a little culture in. The city also has some of the best shopping locations in Australia, with areas like Block Place and Royal Arcade filled with cracking local businesses which are perfect for boutique shopping or a light lunch.

Getting around can be a piece of cake with the city’s historic tramway and diverse public transport. Hopping on a tram can be a great way to see the beauty of the city while getting easily from one place to another. We’d recommend purchasing an all-day or all week travel pass to make things a bit easier or try using a myki card for a simple single card to use on all public transport. If you’d like to learn a bit more about the city, then why not try an open top bus tour; these can be a great way to get between the city’s main sights while learning about the city’s history. With Groupon’s many deals on tours and sightseeing, you’ll be sure to find something that takes your fancy.

With so much to do and see, you’ll never be stuck for another great way to save in Melbourne with Groupon.
