Sunday – culture, boating and life by the water
Head to the Royal Botanic Gardens for a guided walk with a First Peoples guide and learn about the ongoing importance of the gardens for the Kulin Nation. Continue your journey into Australia's Indigenous history with a visit to the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre.
Enjoy lunch with a different view of Melbourne – from the water! Gather a picnic and some snacks from Degraves Street and head down to Sandridge Wharf Southbank, to play captain for a few hours on a GoBoat. The kids will love watching you charter your own tour of the Yarra River, taking in sites like the MCG, Crown Casino and Docklands.
Stay a little longer and enjoy some seaside fun in St Kilda, where you can watch yachts on the bay, stroll the esplanade, and soak up the glitz and glamour of Acland and Carlisle Streets. Give the kids a taste of resort life with a dip at the historic St Kilda Sea Baths and wind down after a long day with some popcorn and a double feature film at The Astor.
