Box Hill North Vacations
Box Hill North is a popular place to head to while you are exploring Melbourne as many of the city’s most popular attractions are close. Two sights that should be at the top of every visitor’s to-do list is the fabulous Doncaster Shopping Centre and the much-loved Glen Shopping Centre. Two other recommended attractions you’ll find within a short distance of Box Hill North are Fairfield Boathouse and the Chadstone Shopping Mall.
Be sure to visit some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make this region the special place it is. In particular, you should make sure you check out Abbotsford Convent in Abbotsford.
If you are visiting with kids, discover a world of wonder at the Studley Park Boathouse in Kew. Take your whole family to a trip to the Collingwood Children's Farm in Abbotsford, and see some unique wildlife.
If the sun is shining head outside and appreciate the nearby parks and reserves. To spend some time in a little nature explore the Yarra Bend Park in Kew.
To stock up on supplies or enjoy a snack, visit the Victoria Gardens Shopping Centre in Richmond and the Northland Shopping Centre in Preston.
There are a number of great activities for those without children, such as the Carlton and United Breweries in Abbotsford.
Melbourne is the home ground of the legendary Melbourne Rebels rugby union team in autumn and Melbourne Victory soccer team. Both teams play regular matches at Aami Park. If, by chance, you are not enamoured with sports, you can still come to the stadium during one of the many pop or rock concerts hosted here.
At the end of a busy day enjoying Box Hill North, recharge your batteries at one of the area’s bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments.
