Why Melbourne is the Events Capital of Australia

9 October 2017

There is no denying that Melbourne packs in a lot of events during its events calendar year and has attracted interstate and international guests to this buzzing city. Many of our guests come and stay at ToC for business, to visit family and friends but the number one reason for travelling to Melbourne is to attend an event.

There is something for everyone, from major sporting competitions to broadway musicals to food and wine festivals and as one event is packed down, another pops up for a year of endless fun. Being centrally located in the CBD, guests choose to stay at ToC for our convenient location. We are a tram or train ride away from the stadiums or a walk to the NGV or the theatres scattered around the city. So start planning your next events travel to Melbourne and book early and direct for the best value with FREE inclusions.
