Last night I had a gelato 1.5 Pepsi cans high! Lol.

    Do a bus tour out to the Yarra Valley, you can find them online and they generally leave from Fed square.

    Will take you to a few wineries or breweries, cheese makers, chocolate makers, fun day out and beautiful part of the world.

    Also maybe a trip out to great ocean road and back via the Otways

    Melbourne is food heaven.
    a) Go to Lune Croissants - Rose St Fitzroy - the weekends are a nightmare so your best best is after 8:00 on Monday, Thursday or Friday.
    b) I recommend Nyala - in Brunswick St, Fitzroy if you like African food - have the mixed entrees, mixed meat and mixed vegetarian dishes. Get to taste a lot of different flavours. The advantage is it is BYO.
    c) Messani Gelato in Smith St, Fitzroy. See what is on special or try one of the "usuals"
    d) Hell of the North in Fitzroy is also good, if a bit more expensive.
    e) One of my favourite things to do, if the weather is good, is to start at Victoria Pde, walk through the Fitzroy gardens, past the MCG, across the Yarra and then through the Botanic Gardens. That gets you across to South Yarra and you can look at the restaurants over there.
    f) The NGV is worth wandering through.
    g) If you want to look at shopping go to the DFO at South Wharf - opposite the Casino and walk down past the river.
    h) have a look at the shows we currently have on, you might find something you fancy. There are a number of Information booths and the "shard" in fed square also has a tourist guide place.

    Have a great time in Melbourne and have a look at Zomato for options.

    There's a video game bar called Bartronica in the CBD if you like games
    Collingwood has a burger joint called Easey's, where burgers are served in an old train 5 stories up
    There's some graffiti laneways with colorful artwork
    Go see a cheap show? http://www.halftixmelbourne.com/ has cheap tickets

    Me, I like to go where I'm not supposed to, so if you want any recommendations on dilapidated buildings to explore pm me

    Remember Half tix also sell bus tours half price if bought day prior. Grampians trip great value and can go to Sovereign Hill but may be cheaper on train and then free bus. Phillip Island and penguins interesting but can be cold so rug up.

    If you're into musicals, the Book of Mormon and Aladdin are both playing and are great shows.

    Book of Mormon is general sold out 2 weeks in advance though, so you could sign up for their pre-show lottery and try win front row seats for $40 each.
