Unfortunately when you are travelling, you do not always have all the time in the world. Sometimes, you are on a very restrictive schedule and do not have much time for sightseeing. This, understandably, can be quite upsetting if you are in a place as gorgeous as Melbourne. There are so many sights to see and so many things to do. However, since you have to stick to a timed plan, you may have to take a rain check on a few places. This does not mean that your visit will be boring, nonetheless, there is still so much you can do. Here are some ideas:
Grab a Local
Want to have a quick rundown of Melbourne things to do? Then the best thing that you can do is to ask a local! They will be able to tell you just what you should see when you are compacted for time. You will also be able to avoid all of the usual tourist traps and head straight for the good spots. It is an added bonus if you will actually be able to get someone to show you around. If not, a comprehensive catalog of places to visit will have to suffice.
Pick One of Each
Think of sites in terms of categories: cuisine, cultural or historical, wildlife, and entertainment. Since you will not be able to explore each category in depth, choose one from each. This way, you will be able to ensure that you have a fulfilling experience in the span of a single day. To make sure that you will be able to fit it all in, visit destinations in order of which ones are closest together. This will save you some time. You can also shave off a couple of minutes by taking your food to go.

It might be tempting with all of the beautiful stores with their even lovelier displays. However, you need to resist the urge to go shopping – at least this time around. What you should do instead is to avoid shopping avenues unless you have a particular item in mind. This way you will not waste precious minutes you do not have by traipsing through shops.
Another way to be able to see a great deal in a short period of time is to head to the highest point possible. This way you will be able to see the city in its entirety. No need to go from place to place and instead have all of the views in just one place. This will leave you with a lot more free time to take in some other sights up close and personal.
If there is a will, there is a way. Although you may not get to see Melbourne in as much detail as you would like, does not mean that you cannot see the city at all. Head to iconic spots or ones that are truly spectacular to make the most out of your visit.
