Things to do in Melbourne with teenagers?

Hi lovely lottos people, I was wondering what your suggestions might be for a teenage boy (13) and girl (15) to do in Melbourne for a weekend? We are visiting in August and they have never been there so would love to get your ideas, thank you.

Eureka Skydeck is an interesting experience for everyone.

My hubby is afraid of heights and was terrified, but acted brave because there was a 6yo girl with us and she was laughing and having a great time. :lol:

Melbourne Museum has great inter-active exhibits, after you can walk up to lygon street for pizza/coffee

Depending on what you and your kids are into, I'd recommend the following:

If they are into sport then definitely the national sports museum and a tour of the MCG. Maybe even try to get tickets to the cricket or the footy to soak up the atmosphere.

Chocolate walking tour for a perfect combination of history, architecture and chocolate.

Old Melbourne Gaol tour or a night ghost tour (if they like a scare).

Escape room if you haven't done one before.

Werribee open range zoo.

The free old city circle tram has lots of info and stops at many places of interest like close to the MCG, Queen Vic market or Federation Square (where there are often cool free activities).

Hope you all enjoy your stay :)

K box karaoke, after asian dinner on Swanson/ russel st / Chinatown. Yum cha lunch on sunday is fun too. Strike bowling at QV. Healllsville sanctuary. Cat cafe in the city just opened too. Go see a band at an afternoon gig in a pub - ok if they are accompanied by adults.
If they're into hipster shopping - camberwell markets on sunday morning or Sydney rd, Brunswick for Savers, Recycle boutique and DeJour Jeans for custom fit skinny Jean's at bargain pricing(except it has long queues on the weekend). Lots of music venues in brunswick too. Food truck park in Thornbury.

I love St Kilda, cakes in Acland Street, walk along the pier, penguins at dusk.

Depends what you have were you are from, Melbourne Zoo is great, Trams, Victoria Market Deli for snacks and take-away and donuts from the van

There are two Art Galleries, Australian at Fed Square and International at St Kilda Road (must see the stained glass ceiling), free entry so great to spend an hour or so
Arts Centre has a rock and roll exhibition, free and you can listen to songs from 50s to now
Block Arcade is old and beautiful and Haighs chocolates too
State Library has art and the Reading room dome is amazing - it also has Ned Kellys armour on display

Have fun!
