What would Brett Lee`s do if he had 24 hours in Melbourne?
A morning walk around Melbourne
While this multicultural city starts buzzing with activity as early as 7 am with people heading to work, jogging, cycling, walking their dogs and sounds of trams on tracks, on weekends it`s a quiet affair. During spring or summer, birds like sparrows and eastern spinebills will call out to you. Melbourne is a place where you can surround yourself with age-old native trees, manicured gardens and wildlife right in the middle of the city. There are interesting walking tours for chocoholics, vintage lovers, photography and history buffs and ghosts chasers too!
Then coffee and shopping at Chapel Street
Chapel Street has a mix of high-end boutiques, stores and street stalls as well as an endless supply of restaurants and cafes. So you`ll find pretty much everything here. It`s also the right place to experience Melbourne`s rich coffee culture, you`ll find cafes at every corner.
Driving down the Great Ocean Road and spending three hours at the snowfields
From Torquay, the 243-kilometre-westward stretch of the Great Ocean Road, takes you past varying landscapes of rainforests, beaches and cliffs and the perfectly crafted Twelve Apostles along the Southern Ocean. From June to October, the snowfields of Victoria promise a fun filled afternoon of skiing, snowboarding, toboggan rides and snow tubing.

Dinner at Nobu`s
Belonging to a reputed Japanese chain of restaurants, started in 2005 in New York by chef Nobu Matsuhisa, reputed restaurateur Drew Nieporent, Oscar-winning actor Robert de Niro and producer Meir Teper, the restaurant is known for its lively party-like vibe. The one in Melbourne overlooks the Yarra River and Nobu restaurants around the world take pride in offering signature new style Japanese cuisine with classic dishes such as Yellowtail with Jalapeño and Black Cod with Miso.
