Docklands Walk (Self Guided), Melbourne

Melbourne's docklands area has fast become one of the city's must-see destinations for its dining, shopping and entertainment options. Rise up high above the neighborhood aboard the Melbourne Star. This is the only giant observation wheel in Australia and from its cabins, you can enjoy spectacular views of the city. From dusk, the attraction is illuminated, making it a beautiful addition to the night's skyline. And this is only the start of the fun.

Go over to the Etihad Stadium for a concert or sporting performance. This is one of the country's largest multipurpose venues and has seating for up to 55,000 spectators. Stroll on Melbourne's walk of fame, the Walk of Stars, which honors such luminaries as international pop starlet Kylie Minogue and singer and actress Olivia Newton-John.

For shopping, explore the Harbor Town Shopping Center, an open-air shopping precinct where you can snap up some of the latest fashions and discounted brands. During your tour of the vibrant waterfront area, stop for a meal or a drink in a bar or restaurant. Alternatively, pack a picnic and spread out on the lawns of Docklands Park. There are also free barbecue facilities here as well as a children's playground, cycling and walking paths, a wetlands area and public art displays.
