Attractions to See in Melbourne
National Gallery of Victoria
Australia’s oldest and most visited art museum has its roots in the 1850’s independence of Victoria from New South Wales, in combination with the booming Victorian gold rush of the early 1850’s. Upon becoming the richest colony at the time, the citizens of Melbourne began a movement in the late 1850’s to establish a public art gallery.
Officially opened in 1861, today’s National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) is housed within two buildings, a short walk apart, and boasts over 70,000 works, including European and international paintings, Asian and Pacific art, Mesoamerican art, Greek and Egyptian artifacts.
Campervan access: Car parks are available within a short walk, as well as limited street parking. Arrival by public transport is highly recommended.
A former industrial area, a kilometre south of the CBD, trendy Southbank was transformed through urban renewal in the 1990’s, to become a collection of high rise residential towers and offices. Today, the district serves as the city’s main business centre, as well as a shopping and entertainment destination.
Included within is the Melbourne Arts Centre (formerly, the Victoria Arts Centre), a complex of performing arts venues, much of which is built underground. Southbank is also home to the 297-metre Eureka Tower, Melbourne’s tallest building and the world’s tallest residential tower at the time of construction.
Today, the building can still claim the most floors available for residential occupancy, and its 285-metre observation deck on the 88th floor is the country’s highest viewing platform.
Campervan access: Melbourne’s Southbank does not have very much available street parking, though there are a handful of covered car parks (often unsuitable for high vehicles). Using public transport in this area is the best option.
Melbourne’s Victorian past is evidenced in its central city arcades, formerly developed as horse and cart laneways, and today repurposed into attractive shopping centres.
Perhaps the best preserved is the Block Arcade, erected in 1893, based on the the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan. Today, the six-storey Mannerism-styled arcade features a glass canopy, mosaic floor tiles, and ornamentation of wrought iron and carved stone.
It’s original name was Carpenter’s Lane, yet it became quickly known as and eventually officially renamed to ‘The Block’, due to a tradition of men and women walking around the block in opposite directions, prior to football matches.
Campervan access: There are several car parks nearby Block Arcade.
City Circle Tram
Serving as both transport and a tourist activity, heritage W-class trams travel a circular route in both directions, with recorded commentary of key attractions and popular landmarks, en route to the Docklands waterfront district, including the City Museum, Parliament House, Federation Square, Melbourne Aquarium, and the Princess Theatre.
Officially Route #35, the City Circle line is distinctive for its colour scheme of maroon and green with yellow and gold trim.
Campervan access: One can join the tram route at any point, meaning there are many parking opportunities, both in the CBD and in outlying areas.
