Weekend Guide

Plan the perfect weekend at the Hilton on the Park Melbourne hotel, in the heart of the city's sporting and entertainment district and located directly opposite the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Rod Laver Arena, and Melbourne Park.

Saturday

Morning

  • After arriving at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport, a taxi into town will cost $50 to $60 and take up to 20 minutes depending on traffic conditions. A cheaper alternative is to take the Skybus but this can take up to 60 minutes and arrives at Southern Cross train station. 
  • Map out the adventures ahead over Hilton’s signature buffet breakfast in Gallery Restaurant. With spectacular views overlooking Fitzroy Gardens and a choice of speciality dishes, there is no better place to kick off your time in Melbourne.
  • Take a leisurely stroll down to the South Gate complex along the iconic Yarra River. The complex will give you a fantastic insight into the river culture of Melbourne. From there, head to the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) to appreciate original exhibitions from talented international and local artists.
  • Wander up to Melbourne's hub known as Federation Square which buzzes with a daily program of events, restaurants and cafes. From within the hub, discover the best of Australia's indigenous art exhibitions at the Ian Potter Museum of Arts.

Afternoon

  • Have a sumptuous lunch and freshly-brewed coffee at Melbourne's bustling Degraves Street. Absorb and appreciate the surrounding graffiti art that decorates the laneway as you discover a bargain in the many nearby boutique shops.
  • Continue the retail therapy by walking further into the heart of Melbourne, where you will find the newly opened Emporium, one of Melbourne's largest shopping centres.
  • Now that you've shopped till you dropped, there is no better place to recharge than the Rooftop Bar at Curtain House. Take in the spectacular city views, before returning to the hotel to drop off the many shopping bags.

Evening

  • Head to Eureka Skydeck 88 and walk onto a glass cube that slides out from the building's 88th floor for unsurpassed sunset views of Melbourne and beyond. Don’t forget to grab your discount pass from the Hilton Concierge team before you leave.  
  • World-class chefs, innovative cuisines, perfectly-matched wines and quirky venues characterise fine dining in Melbourne. None more so than Movida, where you’ll combine the Spanish love of life with Melbourne’s finest gastronomy for a memorable dinner experience.
  • After dinner, discover the front of Spring Street Grocer, where you will find Gelateria Primavera and the perfect evening dessert. For a more upmarket scene, make your way to Spice Temple for a late-night beverage and a dance floor with your name on it.

Sunday

Morning

  • Enter the world of a botanist's delight at Royal Botanic Gardens, featuring manicured lawns, brilliant coloured flowers and magnificent trees. The peaceful surrounds will ease the mind and provide the perfect energiser for the day ahead.
  • Now that you have worked up a sweat and earned a healthy breakfast, get the taste buds tingling at the quirky Grain, Hardware Society or Williamsburg cafes.

Afternoon

  • Visit the celebrated Queen Victoria Market and find yourself a bargain. See buskers, discover souvenirs and marvel at the fresh produce.
  • Meander north to touch and feel your way through local history; give Phar Lap a nod, explore a rainforest, rest in a rollercoaster car, and discover Koori heritage all at the Melbourne Museum. If time permits, pop next door to IMAX to see a 3D movie on the world's third largest cinema screen.
  • A short stroll back into the city and you can sentence yourself to an afternoon of fun at the Old Melbourne Gaol. Victoria's oldest prison housed tough criminals and the infamous bushranger, Ned Kelly. Alternatively, if there is a late game of Australian Football at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) then being a sport fanatic is a must.

Evening

  • Before dinner, head to Harbour town to do some last minute shopping and visit the observation wheel. Take a 30-minute ride on Melbourne's newest star attraction for extraordinary views and a unique bird's-eye perspective of the city and surrounds.
  • Pop into Park Lounge for an impeccable cocktail or glass of wine from the oh-so-knowledgeable Hilton waiters. Located on the Ground Floor of the hotel with views over Fitzroy Gardens and the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Park Lounge provides the perfect location to reflect on your time in Melbourne.
