Victorian architecture gives the city an opulent air, all while maintaining a laid-back coastal city feel.

Ship Location

Cruise ships dock at Station Pier in Port Melbourne. Taxis will be available at the dock to transport you to downtown.

Getting Around

Melbourne's tram (trolley) system is the fourth largest in the world, and an awesome way to traverse the city and the station just a 5-minute walk away from the pier. Walking through the Central Business District (CBD) is a great way to see more of the interesting sculptures and art along the streets, and many of the attractions in the city are centralized. Local volunteer guides are available to do half-day walking tours for free around the city. Taxis, trains, and buses are also modes of transportation throughout the city..


Melbourne, being the beautiful and dynamic city it is, has many things to do for all types of people. The best view of the city, some say, is from atop Eureka Tower, the tallest building in the city. Shopping - the best in Australia - can be done at Queen Victoria Market or throughout the CBD. A couple of relaxing and eye-pleasing strolls can be taken through the stunning Fitzroy Gardens, Royal Botanical Gardens, or across Princes Bridge. Phenomenal, eccentric, and innovative art fills Federation Square and colors pop with intensity all throughout Chinatown. History buffs can visit the famous Old Melbourne Gaol, a former prison of Australia's worst criminals. Albert Park Lake boasts beauty for pictures and a great place to take a picnic. For those wishing to relax a little more, St. Kilda beach is an excellent place to people-watch, soak up some sun, and enjoy the Australian climate.
