Blanket Bay and Cape Otway: Night time koalas
Free when you walk and/or camp. The koalas are pretty quiet during the day, just sitting there chewing eucalytus leaves. At night, they get active and grunt and growl amorously. A real Australian nighttime experience most of us in the city never get to hear.
Dress Code: Keep warm in winter with beanie and jacket. Even in summer, you'll need long sleeves at night.Related to:

Melbourne's Night Life & Casino
Melbourne's level of entertainment on any one night is amazing from theatre, cabaret, jazz, comedy, folk music, poetry, circus, night clubs and much more. You will never have a boring night in Melbourne. In the smaller towns you will also find lots of local pubs with live bands..
For Backpackers : Every Tuesday night is backpackers' night at the Hard Rock Cafe. There are cheap drinks 7.30pm-11.30pm and a live band from 8pm - Bourke Street, Melbourne. Big Wednesday at Frostbites - to Chapel Street for half price pizza and $2 pots.
Melbourne has a fairly new casino and entertainment complex which has been suggested as being Australia's answer to Las Vegas.
Dress Code: For the main areas of the casino, dress is neat casual. In the Oak room gentlemen are required to wear a tailored jacket and tie, (no denim) and smart attire is required for ladies.
Victorian Arts Centre
Victorian Arts Centre is made up of a complex of buildings on the south bank of the Yarra. Three theatres below ground, the State Theatre, home to the Australian Ballet, the Playhouse and a studio space plus the Concert Hall is part of a centre that also houses the Performing Arts Museum. You can take a tour of the complex which is really quite fascinating. You will have a greater appreciation of the colours and artwork also by having it all explained to you. I have great memories of shows and concerts that I attended there.
The spire can be seen for miles around Melbourne especially at night when it is lit up and it is a well known landmark. At night, birds flock together and fly round and round the spire (at least I think they are birds).
