Sightseeing
A great place to walk/run with friends. And an awesome spot for people watching and sight-seeing.No visit to Melbourne is complete without a walk, jog or run around Melbourne's iconic 'Tan Track', a 3.8km track around King's Domain and the Botanic Gardens. Commonly and affectionately known locally as the TAN, it is officially termed the Tan Track. The TAN name (in dispute) comes from either.. a surface of TAN-coloured stone aggregate, because its around the boTANic gardens or it once was covered bv TAN bark. The Tan was originally a horse track for Melbourne's well-heeled but today is one of Melbourne's most frequented locations. Locals, visitors and famous alike now share the space as its international reputation has grown. http://www.onlymelbourne.com.au/tan-track#.VveYy2R97UQ

The Shrine of Remembrance, located in Kings Domain on St Kilda Road, Melbourne, Australia was built as a memorial to the men and women of Victoria who served in World War I and is now a memorial to all Australians who have served in war. It is a site of annual observances of ANZAC Day (25 April) and Remembrance Day (11 November) and is one of the largest war memorials in Australia. Designed by architects Phillip Hudson and James Wardrop who were both World War I veterans, the Shrine is in a classical style, being based on the Tomb of Mausolus at Halicarnassus and the Parthenon in Athens. The crowning element at the top of the memorial's ziggurat roof references the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates. Built from Tynong granite, the Shrine originally consisted only of the central sanctuary surrounded by the ambulatory. The sanctuary contains the marble Stone of Remembrance, upon which is engraved the words "Greater love hath no man". Once a year, on 11 November at 11 a.m. (Remembrance Day), a ray of sunlight shines through an aperture in the roof to light up the word "Love" in the inscription. Beneath the sanctuary lies the crypt, which contains a bronze statue of a soldier father and son, and panels listing every unit of the Australian Imperial Force. The Shrine went through a prolonged process of development which began in 1918 with the initial proposal to build a Victorian memorial. Two committees were formed, the second of which ran a competition for the memorial's design. The winner was announced in 1922. However, opposition to the proposal (led by Keith Murdoch and The Herald) forced the governments of the day to rethink the design, and a number of alternatives were proposed, the most significant of which was the ANZAC Square and cenotaph proposal of 1926. In response, General Sir John Monash used the 1927 ANZAC Day march to garner support for the Shrine, and finally won the support of the Victorian government later that year. The foundation stone was laid on 11 November 1927, and the Shrine was officially dedicated on 11 November 1934. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrine_of_Remembrance http://www.shrine.org.au/Home

The Treasury Gardens provide a tranquil green edge to Spring Street and are a picturesque segue to the Fitzroy Gardens, just over Lansdowne Street. Community events and rallies are held here, and at night the gardens’ large colony of brushtail possums come out to play. Other features include a Robert Burns memorial; an ornamental pond with a monument to President John F Kennedy; a memorial statue of Sir William Clarke; and a large embankment dotted with statues of Victorian politicians. Keep an eye out for pollies taking a stroll from the nearby Parliament House, Old Treasury buildings and State Offices, and dodge the sunbathing office workers enjoying a sunny lunchbreak. http://www.thatsmelbourne.com.au/Placestogo/ParksandGardens/AllParksandGardens/Pages/4440.aspx

Consisting almost entirely of smooth, flat pavement, the 29 kilometre Capital City Trail circuit is a fabulous way of seeing Melbourne by cycle or walk. It starts at Southbank following the Yarra past landmarks such as the Victorian Arts Centre, the Royal Botanic Gardens, the MCG, Melbourne Park and Como House, Herring Island Environmental Sculpture Park, Burnley Gardens, Dights Falls and Yarra Bend Park. For the second half of the Capital City Trail, you follow the old Inner Circle Railway through Royal Park, Moonee Ponds Creek towards Docklands, pass the Polly Woodside Maritime Museum and then the Exhibition Centre, before making it back to Southbank. What makes the route so wonderful is that besides taking in many of the city's highlights, it contains plentiful shops, cafes, restaurants and parks in which you can refuel and recharge. Length: 29 kilometres Cycle: 4 hours Track: Good Grade: Easy Further information Bicycle Victoria Ph 03 9328 3000 http://www.onlymelbourne.com.au/capital-city-trail#.VveaSWR97UQ

The Melbourne Rectangular Stadium, commercially known as AAMI Park,[6] is an outdoor sports stadium on the site of Edwin Flack Field in the Sports and Entertainment Precinct in the Melbourne City Centre. The stadium's major tenants are NRL team Melbourne Storm, the Super Rugby team Melbourne Rebels, and the A-League teams Melbourne Victory FC and Melbourne City FC. AAMI Park became Melbourne's first large purpose-built rectangular stadium when completed in 2010. Referred to as Melbourne Rectangular Stadium during its construction, the ground was officially named AAMI Park on 16 March 2010, in an eight-year sponsorship deal with insurance firm AAMI. When the project to build the new stadium was approved, the largest stadiums in use were the MCG and Docklands Stadium. These were venues of oval configuration and best suited to Australian rules football or cricket. The previous largest rectangular stadium in the city, Olympic Park, was a repurposed track and field venue. The stadium was one of five venues for the 2015 AFC Asian Cup, hosting the opening match and six other matches including one Quarter-final game. AAMI Park hosted rugby league Four Nations matches in 2010 and 2014, and will also be used for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melbourne_Rectangular_Stadium

Before Federation Square took the honours, Flinders Street Station was Melbourne’s favourite meeting place, hence the catchphrase ‘meet me under the clocks’. Flinders Street Station is Australia’s oldest train station, and with its distinctive yellow facade and green copper dome it’s a city icon. Takeaway stands line the concourse, and the upper floors were purpose-built to house a library, gym and a lecture hall, later used as a ballroom. Flinders Street is the busiest suburban railway station in the southern hemisphere, with over 1500 trains and 110,000 commuters passing through each day. Listed on the Victorian Heritage Register, its 708-metre main platform is the fourth longest railway platform in the world. Free wi-fi is accessible on the station concourse and from every platform (select Metro Wi-Fi). http://www.thatsmelbourne.com.au/Placestogo/MelbourneLandmarks/Historic/Pages/6223.aspx

Idle the afternoon away by the bluestone cobbles at a Degraves Street or Centre Place cafe and become part of a Melbourne postcard scene. Colourful times in Centre Place Centre Place might supply the stereotypical images of Melbourne's laneways, but even chockablock with happy snappers the laneway-of-all-laneways satisfies and surprises. Changing stencil art and graffiti provide a sensory overload best dealt with by squeezing into Jungle Juice for an international coffee. Soups, sushi and crepes will tempt, but you might want to save room for the delights on offer at Degraves Street, just across Flinders Lane. Dining on Degraves Take your friends from out-of-town to Degraves Espresso, a quintessentially Melbourne cafe experience. Despite the Parisian vibe cast by the café umbrellas in the shadow of the impressive Majorca House, the dining on Degraves veers towards the Italian, with Il Tempo and Andiamo feeding many. Savour the sugar at Little Cupcakes. Getting arty and smarty An air of creativity blows up from the Degraves Street Subway and the Platform Artist Group's underground displays. Get your smarts with a short course at the Centre for Adult Education campus, stocking up on artisan notebooks at Il Papiro and nourishing the minds of junior readers at The Little Bookroom. Laneway shopping Traverse the cobblestones with new kicks from Sole Devotion on Degraves, and adorn the earlobes with quirky wares from Sine Qua Non. Back on Centre Place browse threads and accessories, local and imported, new and vintage at Fokus and Kinki Gerlinki. Finally, clamber up the narrow stairs to Hell's Kitchen and survey the frenzy below over an icy cold beer. http://www.visitvictoria.com/Regions/Melbourne/Destinations/Laneways/Centre-Place-and-Degraves-Street

Block Arcade is a heritage shopping arcade in the central business district of Melbourne, Victoria. Melbourne's Golden Mile heritage walk runs through the arcade. The arcade proper is L-shaped, connecting Collins Street at the south end to Elizabeth Street on the west. The 'L' shape is converted into a 'T' through the junction on the north side with Block Place, a partly covered pedestrian lane that leads to Little Collins Street, opening opposite the Royal Arcade. The block arcade was known for its well known young larrikin gang called the "barcade boys" who dealt drugs all day and hired prostitutes at night. The arcade which was erected between 1891 and 1893 was designed by architect David C. Askew whose brief was to produce something similar to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan. The result was one of Melbourne's most richly decorated interior spaces, replete with mosaic tiled flooring, glass canopy, wrought iron and carved stone finishings. The exterior façade of the six storey office has near identical facades on Collins and Elizabeth Streets and is one of Australia's best surviving examples of the Victorian Mannerist style. The arcade was formerly known as "Carpenter's Lane", however the precinct was widely known as "The Block". Once the works were complete, local shopkeepers successfully petitioned to have it changed to its present name. It is a significant Victorian era arcade and is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register. Along with Melbourne's other main arcade, the Royal Arcade, and Melbourne's lanes, it is a tourist icon of the city. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Block_Arcade,_Melbourne http://theblock.com.au/
