You’ll Love The Touch of Class That’s Found in East Melbourne
East Melbourne provides an opportunity to step back in time and enjoy spacious surroundings, beautifully renovated buildings and a blissful, more genteel lifestyle. The imposing Victorian terraced houses and the associated sense of affluence may remind you of comedians who used to describe their superior neighbours as having a bowl of fruit on the table, although nobody was ill. That feeling of wellbeing and space extends to the sprawling Fitzroy Gardens which is a great place to just sit and admire East Melbourne. This is, though, a district of pleasing contrasts with the contemporary cafes and bars of Spring Street blending perfectly into these well-established houses, most of which will almost certainly have fruit on the table.
Enjoy the High Life in East Melbourne
Yarra Park is a major feature of life in East Melbourne. It is part of Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Precinct and encompasses the district’s understandable pride and joy, Melbourne Cricket Ground, and its associated sports grounds. Open air movies also draw the crowds here. Wine tours of Yarra Valley, and a visit to the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel in the Docklands district should not to be missed, either. If you fancy a memorable start to the day, try a hot air balloon trip over the city, followed by a champagne breakfast. As night falls, there are major live productions to applaud at the magnificent, 1854, Princess Theatre.
Whenever you Visit East Melbourne, Prepare to be hit for six
Although, just like any other major city, Melbourne has plenty to offer throughout the year, the weather does dictate the best times for tourists to visit. Bear in mind then that the December to February period can be hot; sometimes unpleasantly so. September to November, though, is the more appealing spring season, with the autumn months of March to May also enjoying popularity with visitors. Depending on when you are visiting East Melbourne, you may be concerned that Melbourne Cricket Ground could be closed. That’s not cricket! Apart from entertainment attractions, there is as much winter football played there as there is summer cricket, and the retractable roof defies any adverse weather threats.
You Don’t Need to be Wealthy to Find an Hotel in Well-Heeled East Melbourne
The district’s serviced apartments include those at 381 Cremorne and contemporary meets classy at the Royce Hotel. Pullman Melbourne On the Park Hotel offers great views and décor to delight; whilst, just beyond Fitzroy Gardens and closer to Melbourne city centre, traditional hotels such as Hotel Windsor never fail to thrill. At the other end of the budget scale and close to the Arts Centre, United Backpackers is among the low-cost hostels in the area. As you will gather, there are many possibilities to choose from in this rather grand and laid back part of the city; a district where the affluence of yesteryear lives on in the carefully preserved architecture of its buildings. Choosing accommodation can though be something of a conundrum for the visitor, so prior to your visit; why not take a trip to trivago. Here, the haze of confusion will be replaced by crystal-clear choices of the accommodation available; and one of these is bound to have your name on it.
