We all have those classic images of Melbourne (and the rest of the state) in our minds: a graffitied laneway, a crowded Flinders Street Station platform… a horde of people queuing for hours outside Chin Chin. But while we may think we’ve seen it all, been everywhere (man) and witnessed every Melbourne cliché there is, we still manage to be a little surprised by our city every now and then.
Explore more of the state with these excellent day hikes or hit the road and visit these incredible national parks all within driving distance of Melbourne.
According to advice from the Department of Health, Victorians are allowed to travel for day trips only. Additionally, recreation is permitted so long as you can maintain 1.5 metres from people and not gather in groups larger than ten people.
Check venues are open before you head out as many are still closed due to current restrictions.
