6. The Medibank Building. This is an arcitectual gem with a huge winding rainbow stairwell you can see from the main hall. Most of the building is closed to he public but it is worth stopping in for a look. If you would like to see more keep an eye out for Melbourne Open House Weekend.

7. Harbourtown Carpark Roof. It sounds crazy to put a Carpark on the list but the rooftop Carpark is almost always closed to cars so it makes it the best spot in melbourne to practise riding your bike or scooter. It's got great views, it's quiet and you can park underneath, pull the bike out of the boot and jump in the elevator to the roof. Fun and easy!

8. Port Tours. The city runs free, family friendly port tours regularly throughout the year. You get the chance to see Australia's biggest dock up close and have a fun boat ride too.
