If you’re visiting in the summer months, you can cool off at Port Melbourne’s long strip of sand while watching the Spirit of Tasmania setting off for the Apple Isle. Photograph the old wooden pillars of Princes Pier, kick back in one of the waterfront green spaces or cycle along the Bay Trail as it hugs the coast of Port Phillip Bay.

After a cultural fix? See what’s taking place at the Gasworks Arts Park, a former gas plant that houses two theatres and several galleries where art exhibitions are regularly held. You can coincide your visit with a live performance, festival or market in this unique creative space, which is surrounded by a four-hectare parkland dotted with sculptures.
