Melbourne Cruise Port

Posted on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 |
Station Pier is the cruise terminal for Melbourne, and is only 3km from the CBD, on the coast in Hobson's Bay. The city centre is based around the Yarra River, and easy to reach from the terminal with public transport, especially the handy Melbourne trams.

Melbourne has a reputation to uphold as one of the world's most liveable cities, and the culture capital of Australia. It has a stately New England air when compared to places like the Gold Coast, and is welcoming, laid back and elegant. Walking around the city is made easy as everything is centralised. Timeless architecture and great restaurants and bars make up the inner city scene. The city is intersected with leafy parks and walking paths, including the Fitzroy and Royal Botanic Gardens.

The city is very multicultural and diverse, so be sure to check out a few of Melbourne's many neighbourhoods and eateries.Federation Square is a hub of activity, with galleries, cinemas, shops and cafes surrounding an open area often used for concerts.St Paul's Cathedral is a must-visit spot for those with a love for architecture and history, and on Tuesday and Thursday-Sunday, Queen Victoria Markets tantalise locals and visitors with fresh produce, delis, eateries and clothing stalls.
