Discover the delights of Melbourne with a short break

Melbourne offers some seriously indulgent lifestyle for a short break! From awesome shopping and quirky boutiques, great nightlife with the coolest clubs and niche bars, a renowned live music and entertainments scene and the famous city alleyway cafes where you can pull up a block and enjoy the best latte of your life, you'll feel like you've got your finger on the pulse of what's cool, creative and happening when you come to this thriving city. The arts is engrained in the city life and multi-culturalism is everywhere from 'Little Italy' in Lygon Street (the best Italian restaurants, can be found here!) to the longest continuous Chinese settlement in the western world to be had at Chinatown, and 'Little Greece' centred on and around Lonsdale Street. 
And with Melbourne's celebrated calender of blockbuster theatre productions, sporting events and cultural attractions, you are certainly not short of great experiences to fill your time! Wining, dining and a very urban cool approach to living ... a few days in Melbourne gives you a dose of the good life.
Blue Holidays and Virgin Australia has you covered with yet another tempting special offer - for a limited time you can get airfares and 2 nights from $335pp* - so now there really is no excuse for you to not enjoy a quick city break! See other great city deals here.
