One of the best things to do in Melbourne to take in the city's attractions is to ride on the No' 35 City Circle Tram.

This is a heritage listed, burgundy tram that transports you around the city in either an easterly or westerly direction.

This ride is totally free and most times you will have a conductor on board who will be able to point out some of the best Melbourne attractions that the city has on offer.

And Don't Forget To Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
