Yarra Valley Balloon Flight
It’s an early start to your day, but a flight over one of Victoria’s spectacular wine regions is well worth it. You’ll admire rolling hills, vineyards and surrounding forest, with the CBD skyline in the distance. You’ll be in a comfortable basket with a small group. At the end of the flight top it off with some cheese and wine in the Yarra Valley.
Stay overnight at the zoo
This is bound to be a night you’ll never forget. Werribee Open Range Zoo offers a Slumber Safari, which is a perfect getaway for couples or families. You can go ‘glamping’ with a beautiful tent lodge that features heaters, coolers, electric blanets and en-suites. Just 30 minutes from Melbourne CBD and you’ll feel like you’re in the heart of Africa, as you admire the sunset over an intimate dinner and then you wake up to lions roaring and elephants trumpeting.
Shop til you drop
Melbourne is world-famous for its shopping experiences. For high-end fashion there are many options, including luxury designer heaven on Collins Street and Chapel Street. There’s also the new and refurbished Chadstone Shopping Centre that has reopened with retailers like Burberry. Find everything you need, from bags to clothes and homeware at this stunning venue.
Jump on a horse and carriage tour through the CBD
You’ll feel like you’re travelling back in time when you begin your tour on a horse-drawn carriage through Melbourne city. Champaign and a rose are waiting for you once you step on board. Once upon a time a horse and cart was how people moved around the city. But today it’s a beautiful treat as you admire the city surrounds. See famous and historic sights like Federation Square and Flinders Street Station. The tour is perfect for a romantic afternoon.
