Melbourne: Ideas for a one week visit

Melbourne is now my home! I moved here two years ago and I love exploring my own city. In that time I’ve probably been away for about 6 months of that time if not more with 2 x 2 month overseas trips, week long trips to Sydney, other parts of Australia and overseas. When I am here – I love embracing the arts that this city has to offer and indulging in the many wonderful cuisines offered at great restaurants and bars around the city.
Here is my list of activities and things you can do while visiting for a week. There is a lot more on offer but in a week, I think this will keep you rather busy.

I think this should be more than enough for one week!
If you are up for the Dinners, you should book these in advance so you don’t miss out.
