Just a four hour flight from Wellington is the Australian cultural capital of Melbourne. Fly across the Tasman and embrace the glitz and glamour of this city; a regular feature on every travel guide, Melbourne is a great place for a city break.

It won’t be long until you’re soaking up the city lights of the CBD or sipping a coffee in one of the many cafes that line the streets here. Perhaps you’re about to take a road trip along the Great Ocean Road or into the depths of the farming land with the Silo Art Road Trip. There are many ways to enjoy this city, so make the trip your own. We’ll meet you there, at Ace Melbourne Airport.

Enjoy the Cultural Capital of Australia, with Ace

With a bonanza of events, festivals, museums, galleries and more, it’s easy to see why Melbourne is Australia’s cultural capital.

It has a bumper events calendar, with events that regularly capture the world’s attention. Sports fans will love the Australian F1 Grand Prix, the Australian Open, AFL Grand Final, or even the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Music and film fans will marvel at Melbourne's Music Week and the International Film, Comedy, Jazz, Fringe and Writers festivals. If you can’t visit the city during one of the events, you can still embrace its history and culture, with the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne Museum, the ACMI, and the RMIT Gallery all calling Melbourne home.

Melbourne is nearly as cool as Wellington, with the uniquely different suburbs rivalling that of Cuba Street. With St Kilda, Collingwood and Fitzroy having their own vibes, it’s time to explore - drive around and find a suburb that suits you.

Hit the Road with Ace

Melbourne is fantastic, but the rest of Victoria is the place to be for an epic road trip.

The Great Ocean Road is a regular on every travel guide. It’s one of the best road trips in the world, rivalling New Zealand for its endless stunning views. Leave the city behind and drive two hours west to Torquay, where your road trip officially begins. Drive along the coast toward Apollo Bay; stop off at the incredible beaches, and cute little surf towns, and simply enjoy nature. The stars of the show come just after Apollo Bay, with the Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and London Bridge all attracting thousands of visitors each year.

Visit during the summer and make the trip into a few days of beach hopping, sightseeing, and exploring. It’s a great way to spend a sunny summer.

For those wanting a road trip that’s slightly different from the norm - why not embark on the Silo Art Road Trip? This roadie delves deep into the Victorian countryside and is an incredible exploration of the farming community here. The art is phenomenal, and the views are out of this world. Try something new, and head north to embark on this trip.

However you decide to spend your time in Melbourne, we know it’ll be fantastic. Melbourne is great to visit any time of the year, with events that shock and amaze people and a melting pot of different cultures that call this city its home. Take a road trip of a lifetime, try new cuisines, and embrace the coolest city in Australia today.
