Melbourne – My Dream Destination

Victoria’s capital is one of the best locations to visit in a lifetime. It is full of people from around the world and offers a small world in itself. Though I have never been to Melbourne but as my brother is living there only – so he told me a lot about it. Melbourne offers great sense of artistry with versatile culture and quirks and a great place for shopping, dining and live music. Today I will share top ten reasons that made me completely and irrevocably fall in love with Melbourne. I have even planned my Honeymoon with my now girlfriend and future wife to Melbourne only.

    After watching all the videos, I like to visit ‘Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm’.

    I’m fond of strawberries and I have a special liking towards farms cause I love the silence and the fresh air. The green scenery is also breathtaking. So I fall for that place.

    Great post! After reading your post & watching all the videos, I’d most like to visit the Dandenong Ranges for it’s scenic beauty, breathtaking view and cool breeze blowing through my hair. 😛 I’d give anything away for driving through the winding roads which are present throughout the ranges. I’d love to stay at one of the bed and breakfast cottages and go on frequent excursions in the forests with my camera which provides excellent views. And not to forget the famous ride in the Puffing Billy, a day reserved especially for that. To add to that, there are also several picnic spots for me and my friends to spend a fun-filled day and the ranges are a perfect spot for hiking and cycling.


    Wish you and your blog a happy new year! 😀

    I would like to visit the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) which is located in Yarra Park. Cricket has fancied me since childhood. I still remember those days when the elders in my neighbourhood used to start shouting and hunting for us the moment the cricket ball hit by me broke one of their window panes. Running away from them was even more exciting than playing cricket itself.

    I used to follow every cricket match played by India religiously and used to analyse and discuss it with friends and siblings for days and months. Being such an enthusiastic fan of cricket, visiting one of the world’s largest cricket stadiums is one of my dreams.

    The thought of being seated amongst 95,000 other fans of cricket and cheering the players itself sounds exciting to me. Such large cricket stadiums are one of the ways to explore how much the passion for cricket has penetrated among the people of the world. MCG is located in Yarra Park, which also has many other sporting fields. This would allow me to explore not just cricket, but also many other games.

    After watching the videos of Rohan and Tanmay enjoying Melbourne, I am really feeling jealous of them and I would definitely love to visit the lovely places which they visited at least once in lifetime. Some of the amazing places which I MUST visit is listed below.

    The one place which it caught my attention is “Seal Watching Cruise” which is just amazing and I would definitely love to visit the place once in a lifetime. The Seals are so cute to watch and lovely.

    The next place which I really don’t want to miss going is Penguins of Philip Island where those penguins does the parade. Its so so cute to watch them parading. Amazing view and excellent.

    Next one which I don’t want to miss 12 Apostles from the Sky . Wow! What a breath taking scenes and It was definitely one in a lifetime experience to visit that place and enjoy the nature to the fullest.

    I would definitely want to visit the Eureka Skydeck which is at breath taking height and I would feel like I am on ‘Top of the World’ for sure. Watching the view from that height is one is a life time experience for sure. God! Please grant my wish to visit Melbourne at least once in my life.

    I would not want to miss visiting Panny’s Amazing world of chocolate for that mouth watering chocolates and if allowed I would take a shower too in that 400 kg chocolate falls 🙂 Wow, and I would definitely like to drink the liquid chocolate too.

    One last place which I don’t want to miss is “Amaze’n Things ” which is a wonderful theme park for some fun and entertainment with my family.

    Interesting Post

    After reading your post and watching all the videos.I feel I have stepped into a kaleidoscope called Melbourne
    Where Vistas of experiences would unfold one after another
    The nature lover in me is enticed by the thought of watching the penguin parade.
    Traveling though the great ocean road, soaking up the freshness as the breeze ruffles my hair gets me in the mood to pack my bags for Melbourne.
    But before I can move ,Puffing Billy whistles and invites me for a ride. The kid in me jumps with joy at the thought of visiting Pannys Phillip Island Chocolate Factory

    Even before I can deside on the list of places that I would like to see in and around Melbourne.

    What’s that noise that I hear ?

    Oh its loud cheer from MCG as the cricket world cup 2015 is about to kick start.
