2. Go on a Road Trip
That’s right. Just like in the movies. Go solo or bring your friends along. Nevertheless, Melbourne has one of the best roads and sceneries. Zoom along the highways into the great unknown. I’m kidding. You can choose to do a short drive or a long one.
Note: If you’re a tourist visiting the city with a non-English driver’s license. Before anything else, you should get it translated first so you can rent a car and be wherever you want to be.
3. Try Mini Golf

4. Bath in a Hot Spring
Enjoy the private and relaxing space of the Peninsula Hot Springs. Make sure you go during the off-peak season to get a lower entrance fee of $40. Secure your spot and book in advance.
