The idyllic city suburb of East Melbourne is best known for its two public parks, Fitzroy Gardens and Yarra Park, which make up its majority. Australia is renowned for its sporting prowess, and this is reflected in the numerous sporting fields which make up Yarra Park. From the Melbourne Cricket ground to the Australian rules football field, the park is the perfect place for sports enthusiasts to participate or spectate in their chosen passion. Alternatively, the nearby Fitzroy Gardens offers 26 hectares of Victorian-era landscaped floral gardens, on ornamental lake, cafes and a traditional Band Pavilion. The Gardens also uniquely feature Cooks’ Cottage, the former home of Captain James Cook which was transported from England and rebuilt to commemorate the famous navigator.
For mouthwatering culinary delights, hotel guests are advised to pay a visit to the nearby Chinatown district in downtown Melbourne. The oldest Chinese settlement in the Western World, Melbourne Chinatown encapsulates Oriental culture through its numerous dim sum restaurants, herbalists and fresh markets. This popular tourist attraction is particularly vibrant during Chinese New Year and the Asian Food Festival in the springtime.
Owing to Melbourne’s extensive tram network, tourists are able to navigate the city and its stunning coastline with ease. Numerous tram stops serve the St Kilda seaside resort, helping to draw in thousands of sun seekers hoping to enjoy the white sandy beaches and the iconic Luna Park fairground.
