While you can have a lot of fun in Melbourne during the day exploring the city and enjoying the numerous activities the city has to offer, there is so much more fun stuff that you can enjoy once the sun has set. Surprisingly enough, among the many exciting things you can do in this city, the nighttime activities are often more thrilling. You could sample some of the best eateries to enjoy finger-licking cuisines or explore some hip and hidden bars, to mention just a couple of the fun evening activities on offer in Melbourne.
Below are some of the most popular fun evening activities in Melbourne:
Watch a movie in the Legendary Princess Theatre
If you enjoy watching great movies, you can spend your evening in the Princess Theatre catching an exciting film, either alone or in the company of a loved one. The legendary Princess Theatre reopened its doors to movie lovers in 1986 and has since secured its place among the hottest entertainment spots in Melbourne. The theatre has entertained people with popular shows such as the Cats and South Pacific.
Besides showing great movies, the Princess Theatre has very comfortable seats and booster cushions. There are wheelchair places to accommodate those with limited mobility. Also, there is a bar that allows movie-goers to pre-order drinks to escape queuing at the watering point. You pre-book tickets online and pick them up from the box office as you go to the show and the office opens an hour prior to the movie.
Enjoy seeing the sun going down at St. Kilda Beach
Do you long to witness a magical and magnificent sunset? Then make a point of visiting St. Kilda Beach to do just that. It would be all the more special in the company of a Melbourne escort to give you someone to enjoy it with. This beach is no ordinary beach, it is a playground stretching along the edge of the beautiful blue sea.
To get to St Kilda, go 6 km to get to Port Philips, to the southern side of the city from the Melbourne central business district. This beach is the place to go to enjoy a splendid sunset and can be more fun if you do it on a romantic date. With your feet dipped in the soothing waters at the Port Philip Bay, or as you stroll along the pier, you can enjoy the enigmatic sight of the sun disappearing behind the horizon.
Take a ride on the Melbourne Star
Melbourne has joined many other global big cities in having a Ferris wheel, and most notable is that it is the only Australian city with a wheel of such great magnitude. The Melbourne Star is in the city’s Docklands district and is the perfect observation point for amazing views of the city. The wheel offers patrons a 30-minute ride that is enough to take in some of the best city’s sights. Although you can ride it during the daytime, enjoying a rotation aboard it is one of the most thrilling activities you can try in Melbourne in the evenings.
Melbourne has so many activities you can enjoy in the evening. Those discussed above are merely a sample. Other fun evening activities include enjoying drinks in some secret or rooftop bars, going for a food tour at the Queen Victoria Night Market and exploring the Old Melbourne Gaol.
