How We Got 50% Off Melbourne Attractions and you can too
(+ other cities Australia and New Zealand wide!)
Disclaimer, this is NOT an sponsored post of any kind…its just fantastic advice! Read on so you too can access a variety of discounts on Melbourne Attractions!
As our Melbourne trip was getting closer, the list of Melbourne attractions we wanted to visit got longer and more costly. I then started to wonder what we could do to reduce our expenditure. After all, we do want to continue travelling, so being savvy about our spending is a requirement!
I then remembered a fantastic membership that could give us exactly that: discounts for Melbourne attractions ! Usually we wouldn’t spend money to save money as is the case on a membership. However, this was the exception to that rule and was very worthwhile for us.
If you reside in Australia or New Zealand, you might have heard of them before. It’s the Entertainment Book.
It is a membership that gives you access to thousands of offers. It includes discounts to the best restaurants, cafes, art, attractions, hotels and shopping. The Entertainment Book comes in two formats: a physical book with vouchers or a digital version that you download to your smart phone. The value of the Entertainment membership varies according to what zone you are purchasing.
We purchased the Melbourne edition of the Entertainment membership for the 11 days we were there. It cost us $70 and we easily got over $200 in savings!
Some of the Melbourne attractions we used it for were:
- the SEA Life Aquarium
- Phillip Island Nature Parks
- Melbourne Star Observation Wheel
- Eureka Skydeck 88
- Luna Park
We also accessed discounts for a variety of food places and coffee.
Check out all the available zones to see which editions you can take advantage off. The Entertainment Book also recently released a Bali edition so we will certainly be purchasing it again! A great feature of the Entertainment Book website is being able toaccess a preview of the book. This way you can check the offers beforehand and have an idea if the membership will work for you or not.
Lastly, a fantastic attribute of the Entertainment Book membership is that it helps organisations fundraise. You get to nominate an organisation who’s fundraising efforts you’d like to support. Then 20% of your purchase goes to that fundraiser! If you are stuck for ideas as to who to nominate, we supported our local volunteer-run Townsville Toy Library . Alternatively, you could support the amazing efforts by the Weir State School Chaplaincy Service.
Overall, we totally recommend it. We think it provides excellent value in quantity and quality of offers you get access to. The app was super easy to navigate so finding relevant discounts was a breeze. We will certainly keep it in mind for future travels.
