Top 5 Free Things to Do in Melbourne

We love Melbourne, and there's plenty to do, so we thought we'd give you guys a round-up of the best things to do for free. If you find yourself in Melbourne and are a little short of funds, then this list of freebies is perfect!

1. Free city circle tram

There's a tram that runs every day surrounding the CBD. It takes around 40 minutes to go around the whole circuit and it's a great way to get to know the city as there's a voice-over at every stop!

2. Victoria Market

You can get the free tram to Victoria Market and browse through the many different halls, stare at the mouth-watering cakes and find yourself a bargain amongst all the clothes and souvenirs!

3. Harbour Town Shopping Centre, Melbourne Docklands

Again, the free tram stops here, and it's a great outlet centre full of shops and restaurants. If you're not from Australia then you can go to the tourist centre and get a tourist card which gives you discounts and special offers at a selection of stores.

4. Street art

Melbourne is famous for its art and you can see a great selection for free simply by checking out some side streets which are full of people adding their art to the walls

5. Federation Square

This is a great square in the centre of town, mainly because it has free wifi! You can Skype home, chill in the sun and there's usually some entertainment there as well.
