• Greater Melbourne Event & Conference Venues

Things to do in and around Greater Melbourne

Beyond Melbourne’s bright city lights lies the Greater Melbourne region, a sprawling, diverse metropolis that has much to offer both business and leisure travellers. Covering almost 10,000 square kilometres, Greater Melbourne is home to more than 4.2 million Victorians, with borders that stretch from Frankston in the south, to Craigieburn in the north, to Werribee in the west, and the edges of Mount Dandenong in the east.

While the city of Melbourne will always be a popular destination for business events, meetings and conferences, the wide expanse of Greater Melbourne also has a lot to offer. Visitors to the Greater Melbourne region can enjoy a variety of attractions and entertainment options, from museums and art galleries, to parks and gardens, to beaches and golf courses.

For those looking to take advantage of Melbourne’s attractions, AccorHotels has a range of conference venues within the Greater Melbourne area, each offering excellent accommodation options, well-appointed event spaces and state-of-the-art facilities.
