Luckily, there is plenty to keep you occupied whatever the weather in Australia’s unofficial capital of culture, cool and food!

Visit a museum

Melbourne is awash with fantastic museums covering a huge variety of interests, from the evocative Immigration Museum to the family-friendly Scienceworks, to the interactive National Sports Museum, to the huge and all-encompassing Melbourne Museum. There are plenty of smaller, independent museums which are well worth a visit too, including Charlie’s Arthurs Seat Auto Museum, which is packed full of vintage cars and motorbikes; the Gold Treasury Museum, housed in the former vaults of the Treasury which previously stockpiled the treasures unearthed in Victoria’s Gold Rush; and the wonderful Tram Museum.

The homely Booktalk Cafe in Richmond allows you to take one of their hundreds of second-hand books to your table to read whilst you sip a flat white and nibble on a focaccia. After browsing the books in the impressive State Library of Victoria, stretch out in one of the booths in the adjoining Mr. Tulk, the walls of which are lined with kooky volumes.
