If you are thinking of travelling to Melbourne, Australia this spring, don’t think twice as the country is most beautiful in this season. Melbourne is dressed up in colours of nature in spring and the clear skies and cheery temperature set a perfect ambience to be out and explore the beauty.
There are so many things you can do in Melbourne this spring like getting close to nature by exploring the Melbourne Zoo, located at the heart of the city, where you will find, orang-utan, Australian pelican, giant tortoise, cotton top tamarind, kangaroos, baboons and many more exciting animals. You can also consider visiting Werribee Zoo which offers FREE safari tours to some classical grasslands fauna. The last option on the list is HealesvilleSanctuary, where the wildlife enthusiasts can have close encounters with their favourite mammals like Koala, Red Kangaroo, Platypus, Cockatoos andothers. You can go to their official websites and look for the tickets, times and other additional activities that these Zoos offer.
Visiting Victoria and not going to the Royal Botanic Garden is like missing the opportunity to see the rarest varieties of flora and in spring the landscape is just a splendour to see. Another exciting reason to visit the garden is the “Rare Plant Fair” on 22-23 October 2016, which will showcase rare plants, climbers, succulents, shrubs and trees. You can take them home and plant them in your yard and let neighbours envy your rare plant grandeur.
If you are sporty and love adventure you can go hiking or golf playing as the temperature is moderate and pleasant for walking down the trail and playing out in the open.
