Here is a list of our Top 5 tourist hot-spots to visit when at Baci Restaurant in Crown Casino.

Fed square

1. Federation Square

Federation Square or the Fed Square is Melbourne’s leading hub of significant cultural attractions and world-class events. It is located at the intersection of Flinders and Swanston Streets on the edge of the Melbourne central business district and opposite Flinders Street station and it is one of the best tourist places in Melbourne. The building’s ultra-modern design of open and closed spaces contrasts with the surrounding Victorian architecture. 

The Fed Square has become the city’s iconic meeting place as there’s always something going on here, with an exciting schedule of events and activities happening throughout the year. It lets you delve into the city’s acoustic acts through a series of free outdoor concerts and festivals that are held every Thursday during the summer.

Eureka skydeck

2. Eureka Tower

Named in recognition of The Eureka Stockade, the 1854 rebellion of prospectors in the Victorian goldfields, the Eureka Tower stands 91 stories above the ground in the heart of Southbank.

The Eureka Tower is more than just a tall building, it is a popular tourist spot. The tower stands tall at 297 meters (975 ft.). The building is gold plated and is next to the Yarra River, in the center of the Southbank precinct. The top 10 floors have 24 carats (99.9%) gold plated glass windows. There is a constant system of pumps moving water between the two 300,000 liter tanks so it can beat the wind-induced oscillations.


3. Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium

A popular destination with kids and adults alike. See some of the world’s most incredible animals, thousands of tropical fishes, crocodiles, huge sharks, and smiling stingrays. Take a trip on a glass-bottom boat or experience the incredible Shark Dive all under one roof.

4. Royal Botanical Gardens Melbourne

In the heart of green parkland extending south of the Yarra River, about two kilometers from the CBD, the Royal Botanic Gardens. Before the Royal Botanical Gardens Melbourne was established, the area in which the garden now exists was a mundane stretch of swampland. The area on the South Bank of the Yarra River was once filled with craggy rocks, outcrops, marshland, and weeds and it is now one of the best places to visit in Melbourne. 

boat cruise

5. Yarra River Cruise

A riverboat cruise is not only the perfect way to see the sights, it’s also an insight into the history of the Yarra River. Many cruise companies can be found along Southbank, and it’s a relaxing and fun way to get your bearings before you set out to explore the city on foot. While you’re gliding down the river, keep an eye out for Birrarung Marr, originally called “Birrarung,” meaning “river of mists and shadows,” a waterfront parkland celebrating Aboriginal ties with the Yarra River.
