Home to one of the city’s most vibrant entertainment precincts, Crown Melbourne offers you the chance to wine, dine, relax, and maybe even win a few dollars – all in a single day. 

Whether you’re on a staycation or heading to Melbourne for a holiday, here are our top picks for things to do in and around Crown Melbourne.

Indulge in a little R&R at Crown Spa

You’ve been working hard and you’re probably overdue for a break. What better way to let the stresses of the daily grind melt away than with some serious pampering at Crown Spa? Book a treatment here – think massages, facials, body scrubs and more – and you’ll also get complimentary access to the Crown Towers’ main pool as well as the private Aqua Retreat facilities including a therapeutic rain shower and steam room. Ahhhh… bliss.

Get warmed up at the Gas Brigades Fire Show

If you’ve never witnessed Crown’s Gas Brigade Fire Show before, you’re in for a treat. Get up close (but not too close!) and personal the world’s largest fireballs as they shoot into the night’s sky from eight towers along Melbourne’s Southbank. Crown Melbourne’s Gas Brigade evening shows happen on the hour after dark, so head down early to secure a good vantage point.

Splurge on a luxury hotel stay

Came up trumps with a winning hand at the casino? Up the ante and go full high roller with an exclusive stay at one of Crown’s luxury villas. Most villas take up quarter or half floors of Crown Towers’ top levels and offer sweeping views over the city – so it’s no surprise they’ve been patronised by the likes of Bill Gates, Beyonce and Jay Z, George Clooney and Elton John.

Treat your tastebuds at The Meat & Wine Co

A visit to Melbourne’s premier dining precinct wouldn’t be complete with a stop-off at The Meat & Wine Co. Just a stone’s throw away from Crown Melbourne at Freshwater Place, The Meat & Wine Co Southbank sits on the edge of the Yarra River at the heart of the action. 

Inside, the impressive open kitchen adds a sense of theatre to the dining experience, with the PUZA Lounge & Bar offering the perfect spot to enjoy a beverage or two before or after your meal. Pair your favourite libation with a top-graded steak prepared to your liking on the grill, or sample our seasonal selection of fresh seafood dishes, salads, and share plates.

Tempt your sweet tooth at The Conservatory

There’s dessert, and then there’s a dessert buffet. That’s exactly what you’ll find at The Conservatory, where for $30 at lunch or $38 at dinner you can sample a veritable smorgasbord of sweet treats. There’s chocolate fondue in which to dip marshmallows, strawberries and brownies (oh my!), delectable tortes, slices and cake, and creamy mounds of ice cream as far as the eye can see. Bon appétit!
