The Area: Caroline Springs
Caroline Springs, located just 30 minutes out of Melbourne’s CBD, is a lakeside town with ample opportunities for bike riders and bushwalkers to roam around Lake Caroline and Kororoit Creek, keeping an eye out for kangaroos and snake-neck turtles.
Those looking for a little more action can hang out at WestWaters, an entertainment centre with live music, restaurants, bars, and TAB. Melbourne CBD is close enough to spend the day wandering between the café-lined alleyways, shopping at boutique and vintage stores, and relaxing amongst the flowers and leafy trees in Alexandra Gardens.
