Highlights of your coach tour include the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne's most famous sports stadium and Melbourne Park - home to the National Tennis Centre and the sports precinct, visit the Royal Botanic Gardens, pass the Arts and Cultural Centre on Southbank and elegant St Kilda Road, see the vibrant waterfront development of the Docklands and Etihad Stadium. Take in a spectacular view of the city skyline from the Bolte Bridge and Port Melbourne by the sea. You'll enjoy beach views en-route to trendy St Kilda where you can explore Acland Street, home to an eclectic mix of cultures. Perhaps enjoy a local favourite - afternoon tea of coffee and cake at one of the trendy cafes and world class patisseries (own expense). See upmarket suburbs and the mega houses of Elwood and Brighton, the iconic Brighton bathing boxes (subject of many a tourist photo), lively Fitzroy Street and take a trip around Albert Park Lake - home of the Australian F1 Grand Prix.
