2) Drink the Best Coffee in The World
According to a user survey on Booking.com, the best coffee in the world comes from Patricia, a minuscule hole-in-the-wall coffee joint on Little Bourke Street.
You’ll need to queue for your drink, and there’s no seating, but friendly staff provide you with coffee to die for and a tale to tell. There’s a thriving café culture in Melbourne if you prefer lingering over a latte to gunning down an espresso at the counter.
Melbourne hosts an international coffee expo, and you’ll never tire of finding new boutique coffee shops for all tastes and budgets.
Location: Patricia, Little Bourke Street, Melbourne

If you’re looking for an unforgettable live gaming experience with friends or family, head down to the Rush Escape Room.
You’ll be locked inside an immersive and interactive environment and given sixty minutes to break out.
Based on true stories and classic fictional scenarios, the themed Rush Escape Room is an unforgettable experience.
Location: 160 Toorak Road, Melbourne
4) Treat Yourself to A Street Art Tour
If you’re a fan of graffiti and street art, take an organised tour run by active street artists. It is an eye-opener.

The instructive live commentary from artists gives you insight into why Melbourne attracts so many creative souls from around the world.

6) What Is the Wonder Chamber?
The Wunderkammer, translated as “wonder chamber,” is a museum and retail store rolled into one.
The focus splits between science and natural history. The atmosphere is such that you could stay for hours as an adult, but the kids shouldn’t get bored either.
Enjoy sprawling collections from anatomical models and preserved specimens, to medical instruments, religious reliquaries, and “miraculous” objects, like double apples and mermaids.
Wunderkammer is a cornucopia of treasure in Melbourne that will keep the whole family captivated.
Location: Wunderkammer, 439 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne
