#5 Eureka Skydeck
Being the tallest platform in the Southern Hemisphere, the Eureka Skydeck is sure to give up the goods when it comes to getting an awesome view! The level is surrounded by floor to ceiling glass panels guaranteeing a good photo. If the 360 degree views aren’t enough to take a great pic, the Skydeck also has an ‘edge experience’ that involves a motorised, glass box (with glass floors) moving out of the building entirely. Not a good choice if heights aren’t your thing!
Tickets for teenagers aged 13-16 cost $10.00. Go to www.eurekaskydeck.com.au for more info!
#4 St Kilda
St Kilda is perhaps what a photographers dreams are made of. This bustling part of Melbourne is the place to have wild night out! The beaches, vibrant sunrises, old pavilion, contemporary dining, Aussie culture and Luna Park make it impossible to take a bad photo, even with Melbourne’s unpredictable weather. Try taking a snap during sunset from the Old Pavilion, this seems to be a winning shot with the locals. Grab a picnic blanket, some friends, a few rays of sunshine, a camera, and the scene is set for a make-do photo shoot that assures fantastic photography at an even better location. The Royal Botanical Gardens gives you the opportunity to trigger your inner Bear Grylls and immerse yourself in fragrant, perfectly arranged and colourful flora. You won’t even need a filter with backgrounds this good!

#2 Laneways In Melbourne
Melbourne is renowned for its lane ways so what better place to take indie Instagram shots than Melbourne’s cobble stoned, artistically graffitied alley ways? Head down to Rankins Lane, Hosier Lane, Hardware Lane and Degraves street to take a few shots of typical multicultural, Melbourne culture. Sometimes you can catch the artists in action! After your photo shoot, you can stop off at hidden cafes and cupcake bakery’s for a yummy treat.
Located in the heart of the city, Southbank takes the number one position for the best views of the city skyline, entertainment, restaurants and views of the Yarra. It is recommended to visit this chilled part of the city during night hours to get the best pics. The flames that emerge out of the concrete pillars along the river reflect beautifully on the water giving you great photo ops!
