Hello everyone!

Well it's official... I'll be traveling down under for vacation for the first time ever and have decided to come to Melbourne. My vacation time is somewhat limited and I didn't want to try and do too much on vacation and end up feeling like I didn't really enjoy it. So I decided on Melbourne for my first ever Australia trip because it looks like it has so much to offer. A little background on myself: I'm not the "adventurous" type, by that I mean things like diving, snorkeling and such don't really appeal to me. I am more of a sightseeing, food person who also enjoys a good bar every now and then. So my questions would be:

What would you recommend seeing?

Good recommendations on restaurants, bars? I love breakfast so if you know of some great places, by all means let me know.

I haven't booked yet but will be very soon and plan on traveling in April. How is the weather? What hotels would you recommend?

Also, is there a "dress code" for Melbourne? I mean don't get me wrong, I want to look nice but do you need to wear a suit and tie for dinner all the time? Well a nice shirt and nice blue jeans suffice most of the time down there? I guess I just don't want to look or feel out of place there

I realize I will probably get some many different answers and recommendations but that's what I want and I will appreciate it.

Thanks in advance

Chris
