Behind the heritage, facades are hidden bars and glamorous experiences.
If you are coming to Melbourne this summer and you are up for a luxury Melbourne experience, we have a created a summer bucket list to add to your Melbourne itinerary. So if money is just number and luxury experiences are your way of seeing the world then keep reading.
1. Wine – Food – Fly Tour
Experience Melbourne in a whole new way with a private helicopter tour of the world’s most liveable city, followed by a quick trip out to Yering Station winery to indulge in a luxurious lunch and spoiling your senses with wine tasting.

3. Upmarket Shopping
With fashion-forward boutiques, elegant arcades and luxury tailors, Melbourne is Australia’s best shopping destination. Our first stop is always at Marais, a glamorous store for high-end women’s fashion. Across an opulent two-storey space you will find the first shop-in-shop for Celine, Givenchy, Balenciaga, Rick Owens and Linda Farrow. As well as major international brands such as Loewe, Chloe, Lanvin, Alexander McQueen to name but a few. Next on our list is Madame Virtue, where you can browse collections from top global designers, one-off and haute couture pieces, they even make their own beautifully intricate designs. It’s fashion heaven for every label-loving shopaholic. For accessory lovers, we highly recommend Christine, an extremely well-appointed sophisticated accessories boutique with just two objectives: stocking the best products to be found, sourced from all over the world; and most importantly making you look good.
4. Create Your Own Fragrance
Create your own bespoke custom perfume with your own formula at Fleurage. The experience begins with the Fleurage perfumer’s personal scent analysis of each participant which reveals the scent family and type of perfume that is most suited to their tastes. From your selected ingredients with the guidance of the perfumer, your formula is created and recorded on your own worksheet for you to take with you. A luxury unique experience making a fragrance that’s uniquely yours.
5. Vue De Monde
A luxury Melbourne must-do list isn’t quite complete without Vue De Monde included. Located 55 floors up, on what was the observation deck of the Rialto, the restaurant boasts an impressive 360-degree view of the city, spanning from the Docklands to the Dandenongs. The menu offers an a la carte option of four courses as well as the mighty 10-course degustation which really is a once-in-lifetime dining event. Dining at Vue De Monde is, for want of a better word, an experience rather than simply a meal.
The most luxurious item not on this list though is time. Allow our Concierge to create your perfect itinerary allowing you to get the most out of your stay.
