Melbourne City Sights

Melbourne, Australia city sights featured the Central Business District, the financial heart in Collins Street, Parliament House, Queen's Victoria Market, St Patricks' Cathedral, The Southbank, Federation Square, The Victoria Arts Centre, Shrine of Rememberance and exploring the hidden treasures in Melbourne, famous lanes and historic arcades.

Collins Street is a major street in the Melbourne central business district and runs approximately east to west. It is notable as Melbourne's traditional main street and best known street, is often regarded as Australia's premier street, with some of the country's finest Victorian era buildings.

Parliament is an underground railway station in the suburban train network of Melbourne, Australia. It is one of five stations (and one of three underground) on the City Loop, which encircles the central business district. It is the fourth busiest metropolitan railway station in Melbourne.

Queen Victoria Market is Victoria's premier open-air market. It's a thriving and vital place pulsating with life.

St Patrick’s is an integral part of Melbourne, and its history tells us much about the State’s birth and growth. Situated on the fringe of the city grid, close enough to the heart of Melbourne to be a powerful presence and breathe with a life of its own. St Patrick's Cathedral is the mother church of the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne.

Built in Yorkshire, England in 1755 by the parents of Captain James Cook, Cooks' Cottage was transported to Melbourne in crates and barrels, re-assembled and officially opened in Fitzroy Gardens, Victoria, in 1934.

Combining modern interpretations of Captain Cook’s life and adventures with centuries old relics and a vibrant, colourful English cottage garden, Cooks’ Cottage provides a unique insight into English family life in the 18th century.

Fitzroy Gardens was selected to complement the cottage with its large shady European trees.
