Touristy Things

(Yes, I'm still here. Still reading everything, just not posting much, ok?)

This year marks a first for me. This will be the first time in my life that I won't be having Christmas as my parents place. They're having it at mine!

Mum and Dad are on a cruise at the moment (two weeks going around New Zealand, then two weeks going around New Caledonia, Fiji and the like) and get back to Sydney the morning of Friday the 23rd of December. Of course, Mum didn't want to have to try and organise Christmas in the day and a half after they get back, so I'm hosting it instead. Mum and Dad fly in to Melbourne from Sydney once they get back, and my brother is flying down from the Sunshine Coast on the same day.

They are here from Friday the 23rd till Friday the 30th. Part of that will be doing the Christmas thing, but also there will be tourist stuff.

What suggestions do people have for the tourist stuff? Keep in mind that I don't have my own car, so preferably would like things easily accessible via public transport, or organised tours and the like.

I'm not planning on making an itinerary, just collecting all the options and letting them choose what they want to do. Already pencilled in is the Queen Victoria Markets, Melbourne Zoo and Melbourne Aquarium. What else?
