Bridge Road Vacations
To feel the real pulse of Melbourne, spread your wings and discover nearby areas such as Brunswick Street, South Yarra, and East Melbourne.
Be sure to visit some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make the area the special place it is. Discover the museums and collections in Melbourne Museum in Carlton, Abbotsford Convent in Abbotsford and the Melbourne Arts Centre. Lovers of the arts will find plenty to cheer about at venues such as the Forum Theatre and the Her Majesty's Theatre. Visit the National Gallery of Victoria, to get your fill of art.
If you are visiting with kids, load up everyone and go to the Studley Park Boathouse in Kew. Admire all kinds of interesting creatures at the Collingwood Children's Farm in Abbotsford.
To surround yourself with nature, go and check out the nearby parks and reserves. These are good spots to relax and unwind. Go for a walk in one of the parks and gardens, which include the Birrarung Marr Park and the Yarra Bend Park in Kew.
For some retail therapy, visit Jam Factory in South Yarra, the Victoria Gardens Shopping Centre in Richmond and Como Centre.
If you are holidaying without kids in tow, spend some time at the Carlton and United Breweries in Abbotsford.
A prominent feature on the Melbourne skyline is Aami Park, the home ground of the Melbourne Rebels rugby union team in autumn and the Melbourne Victory soccer team. If you’re not a sports fan, you can still enjoy the stadium’s fine acoustics during one of the many pop or rock concerts hosted here.
When you’re ready to wind down after a busy day discovering the delights of Bridge Road, check in to one of the area's range of short and long stay accommodation options.
