      Hi Lauren,

      Melbourne is a great place to explore on a rainy day as there are so many indoor places to visit!

      There are trams and trains available around the CBD and out to the suburbs so you can get around to places without getting wet – this means you can still fit lots of places into your day.

      Things to do in Melbourne on a rainy day
      The Melbourne Museum, National Gallery of Victoria, Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) and Melbourne Aquarium are all places close to the CBD that are entirely inside.

      For foodies you can head to somewhere like Southbank where there are lots of restaurants on the first floor which can be accessed walking along indoors and many of them have balconies with clear plastic and heaters so you can still sit outside and enjoy the view of the river.

      There is shopping all over Melbourne but some good rainy day shopping centres are Emporium Melbourne and Melbourne Central as they are large and accessible by public transport. Crown Casino is a good indoor luxury shopping place with stores like Prada and Louis Vuitton

      Last minute show tickets are a great way to spend a rainy evening as some events, especially those on weekedays, often don’t sell out. Check out the Melbourne Art Centre website for everything from ballet to comedians and my personal favourite National Geographic Live!

      Things to do in Melbourne on a rainy day with kids
      For things to do in Melbourne on a rainy day with kids head to the Melbourne Aquarium which is all indoors and has lots of fun and interactive displays for kids. You can also book behind the scene tours which are a great treat on holidays.

      The Melbourne Museum has lots of stuffed animals in their Wild section and Dinosaurs and Bugs Alive are also favourites with children. Scienceworks is also a great thing to do with kids on a rainy day in Melbourne but you do need a car to easily get there.

      The Crown Complex also has lots of paid activities like the huge video arcade Galactic Circus, Bowling and Laser Tag.

      Happy travels 🙂
