Home to over 10,000 animals, including one of the world’s largest Saltwater Crocodiles in the state-of-the-art Croc Lair exhibit, SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium takes you on an interactive adventure from the depths of the ocean to the icy waters of Antarctica. With interactive animal encounters, iconic state-of-the-art displays and animal feeds SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium is an excellent, educational and completely engaging experience.


A unique institution at the heart of Melbourne's iconic meeting place, Federation Square, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) celebrates, explores and promotes the moving image in all its forms - film, television and digital culture. Through award-winning Australian and international exhibitions, films, festivals, live events, creative workshops, education programs and resources, ACMI provides unsurpassed ways to engage with the moving image. Screen Worlds: The Story of Film, Television and Digital Culture, is a permanent exhibition charting the journey of the moving image and, in particular, Australia's engagement with screen culture as consumers and creators.

Eureka Tower is a 297.3-metre (975 ft) skyscraper located in the Southbank precinct of Melbourne. It is one of only 17 buildings in the world with 90 or more storeys and is the 100th tallest building in the world. It is also the second-tallest building in Australia and the tallest building in Melbourne. The observation deck (Eureka Skydeck 88) occupies the entire 88th floor of the Eureka Tower and is the highest public vantage point in a building in the Southern Hemisphere at 285 m (935 ft). Skydeck 88 features 'The Edge' – a glass cube which projects 3 m (10 ft) out from the building with visitors inside, suspended almost 300 m (984 ft) above the ground. When one enters, the glass is opaque as the cube moves out over the edge of the building. Once fully extended over the edge, the glass becomes clear. Check out this video.


Experience "The Edge" at Eureka Tower, Melbourne.
