Melbourne Excursions

Welcome to Melbourne Excursions and Melbourne Shore Excursions by Shore Excursioneer

Welcome to Melbourne the modern city with a long history. Located in the southeastern part of Australia, it is situated on Port Phillip a nice protected bay. Melbourne (pronounced mel-burn) has been deemed the most liveable city in the world. Get out, explore and see why it earned this title on one of our Melbourne excursions.

Being in the southern hemisphere, winters are during June and July when temperatures dip to 60F average (15.7C) and the summer is a nice 79F average (26C) in January. Visitors are treated to nice weather just about any time of the year. Melbourne is one of several large cruise ship ports in Australia.

Founded by free settlers from the British penal colony in 1835, the first record of humans in the area dates back 40,000 years before the white settlers arrived. The Gold Rush of 1851 brought many people to the area and helped create Melbourne as a major cruise ship port. The wealth brought in from the gold miners helped finance and build the infrastructure with schools, government buildings, libraries, and built up the suburbs.

This city offers something for everyone. For the outdoors oriented, the beaches at St. Kilda and Brighton top the long list. The brightly colored beach huts are a picture postcard worthy. Within the city, you will find numerous parks and green spaces. Those into the arts, there are theaters, symphonies, opera house, and over 460+ music venues. The NGV International hold works of art from around the world.

If you are more into sightseeing Melbourne excursions, you will want to add these to your list. The Eureka Tower is the tallest building and offers spectacular views from its 88th-floor observation sky deck. The State Library of Victoria was built in 1854 and is the second awarded UNESCO City of Literature. The Shrine of Remembrance honors those who fought in WWI. Another highlight is FED Square and the ACMI (Australian Center of Moving Image).

A stop at Chinatown is interesting and founded by some of the gold miners from the 1800's. Queen Victoria Market and Myer Departure Store offer guests lots of shopping opportunities. Or for something different, you might want to check out the Old Melbourne Gaol, the oldest prison or maybe a stop at the Hoorie Heritage Trust, which displays and preserves the indigenous ways.

Plan your day and see the best of Melbourne on one of our Melbourne shore excursions!
