First stop in Australia is Melbourne, a City Full of Life. Its grand city centre, including the dynamic docklands precinct, is one of the world’s great city hearts. It bustles with daytime shoppers, night time revelers, and those out to enjoy its many attractions. Melbourne is recognized as Australia’s retail and fashion capital. Don’t miss the Victoria markets if shopping is your thing, but if not there is plenty of beautiful architecture, art and activities to keep you busy.
Located at the foothills of the Otways and in the heart of the Great Ocean Road region, Apollo Bay has been called “Paradise by the Sea”. Discover the town’s wide, crescent-shaped sandy swimming beach, backdrop of rolling green Otway hills, relaxed lifestyle, waterfalls, and national and state parks.
Described as the city of ‘craters, lakes and caves’, Mount Gambier was built on the slopes of an extinct volcano. See the remarkable Blue Lake, which has filled the largest of three volcanic craters and puts on a real show from November, when the water becomes a brilliant turquoise blue.
Adelaide is a city of great visual harmony and has a classical elegant style, superbly set beside the River Torrens between the Adelaide Hills and waters of Gulf St Vincent. Be sure and visit the Adelaide Central Market, the largest fresh produce market in the Southern Hemisphere. Another must see is the National Aboriginal Cultural Institute (Tandanya) the worlds largest display of Aboriginal culture and artifacts. Nearby in the Adelaide Hills is the National Motor Museum which comprises over 300 cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles and is considered to be one of the best displays in the world.
Next is Alice Springs, Australia’s most inland town, sitting around 200km south of the absolute centre of the continent. Alice Springs was established, under the original name of Stewart, as a telegraph station – linking Adelaide and Darwin. A century later, it is still a communications and commerce hub, and is now home to a population of approximately 28,000 people.
Uluru (Ayers Rock) is about 450 kilometers by road from Alice Springs; Uluru-Katatjuta National Park is home to the most recognized Australian landmark – Uluru (previously called Ayers Rock). World-Heritage listed, Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park covers an area of approximately 1325 square kilometers of striking landscape. In addition to the Rock the park also includes Kata Tjuta (previously called the Olgas).

The Queen Victoria Market is an historic Melbourne landmark and a Melbourne institution dating back to more than 120 years ago.
Queen Victoria Market hasn’t been just a market. At different times in the past it has been a cemetery, a livestock market and a place to sell fruit and veggies (vegetables) wholesale. It is said to be the southern hemisphere’s largest open-air market offering a variety of fresh farm produce and, on Sundays, a wider range of merchant items which turn the market into a modern Arabian Nights bazaar. This is the place to buy your souvenirs.
Aside from the variety of wares offered at the Queen Victoria Market, buskers and street entertainment are a market feature, particularly on Sundays when Queen St is closed and becomes a place of cafes, carnival rides and other activities. And there’s always the sound of spruikers cajoling visitors into buying their goods, and you can haggle for the best prices you’re able to get.
The Queen Victoria Market trading hours are 6am to 2pm on Tuesday and Thursday; 6am to 6pm (with the general merchandise section closing at 4pm) on Friday; 6am to 3pm on Saturday; and 9am to 4pm on Sunday. The market is closed on Monday and Wednesday, and on Good Friday, Anzac Day, Melbourne Cup Day, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. (Please double check times before you go.)
