The Perfect Itinerary
The perfect Melbourne morning begins with a breath of fresh air and a casual stroll along ‘The Garden Run’, a walking map specially curated to take you along the edge of the Yarra River and through the Royal Botanic Gardens. Stop for a cup of coffee at Rosso on your way to Flinders Lane before embarking on your journey.
Once it’s time for lunch, Farmer’s Daughters provides an elegant introduction to Victoria’s best produce, crafted with Seasonal considerations by Executive Chef Alejandro Saravia.
Chief Concierge Navodit considers the MCG to be Melbourne’s equivalent to the Sydney Opera House. As a cricket fan himself, Navodit says catching a game, or at the very least taking a tour of this Melbourne icon, is an essential item on any Melbourne itinerary.
Finally, finish the day with a trip to the Winter Night Markets, showcasing an array of cuisines, mulled wine, open fires and entertainment. Or, if family friendly activities are on your agenda, explore Lightscape, a playful after-dark experience in the Royal Botanica Gardens.
