From intriguing museums and astonishing architecture to an unending stream of live music, the coastal metropolis of Melbourne is always abuzz with the sights and sounds of creativity. Visitors from all over the world come to see the city’s unique landscapes and native animals and plants, such as koalas, kangaroos and eucalyptus trees.
Discover the many charms of “The Garden City” for yourself, thanks to your complimentary 24-hour* hop-on, hop-off ticket from City Sightseeing Melbourne. Customizing your own adventure has never been so easy. Just hop on the open-top double-decker bus to see the city’s many highlights, then hop off at the locales that catch your interest — from Melbourne Zoo and St. Kilda Pier to Fitzroy Gardens and Arts Centre. (Admission fees for sites and attractions are not included.)
At InterContinental Melbourne the Rialto, which is set in a grand 1891 building, you can immerse yourself in history as you savor afternoon tea. You can also take advantage of the hotel’s proximity to the pretty Yarra River and the incredible SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium, along with the iconic Flinders Lane, a trendy spot filled with restaurants, and Collins Street, known for excellent examples of traditional local architecture.
*Your hop-on, hop-off sightseeing bus tour ticket can be used any day of your trip. It is valid for 24 hours after its first use.
