Centrally located in the heart of Collingwood, our pub is more than just a great place to grab a beer and watch the footy; we also offer great accommodation at affordable rates.
Since we’re situated close to the CBD and plenty of public transport, staying at the Baden Powell Hotel makes checking out all of Melbourne’s great attractions super easy.
Some nearby attractions include:
- The Royal Botanic Gardens
- The Shrine of Remembrance
- The City Circle Tram
- Federation Square
- National Gallery of Victoria
- Melbourne Museum/Scienceworks/IMAX @ Melbourne Museum
However, as cool as some of these places are, no trip to Melbourne is complete with visiting the following places:
As the highest viewing platform in the southern hemisphere, the Eureka Skydeck is a must-see Melbourne attraction. The lift will take you up 88 floors in a mere 40 seconds where you can venture bravely out to The Edge, a switchable glass cube that slides out from the building, with you inside!
The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) is the perfect place for you to immerse yourself in the world of film, television and culture at the centre’s permanent, and free exhibit, Screen Worlds.
ACMI is also home to Melbourne’s best film festivals and international cinema and features a range of screen related exhibitions.
Wandering the heritage sheds at Queen Victoria Market is the one true way to experience Melbourne’s authentic multi-cultural environment. You can uncover a variety of clothing, jewellery and souvenirs and taste all of the locally-made food and purchase as much meat and fresh fruit and vegetables as you like – the markets really are Melbourne’s best shopping destination!
The Old Melbourne Gaol was built way back in the 1800s and housed some of Australia’s most notorious criminals, including Ned Kelly. The building is one of Melbourne’s oldest buildings and can be explored by the safety of the day or by candlelight on a spooky night tour.
Before you leave, however, make sure you also check out the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, Melbourne Aquarium and Melbourne Zoo. And also be sure to grab a parma and a beer from the pub before you hit the sack. You can also take advantage of our $12 pizza night on Tuesdays with $12 jugs of Carlton and house beer, as well as $15 parma, chips and salad night on Wednesdays, plus $18 T-bone steak night on Thursdays.
