Love taking pics? Head to these must see places
No matter if you're a tourist or a local, many of us love finding a good picture opportunity in Melbourne. The pretty skyline, graffiti lanes, and café culture, make for some really great snaps, and whether you're an Instagram addict, or love capturing memories, photos can be a part of everyday life.

Here are the top 5 best places in Melbourne to take a great picture:

The Shrine of Remembrance, St Kilda Road.
Here's a great location that looks beautiful in the day light, as well as the dark when it's all lit up. There's also a great view of the city skyline from this spot, and a short stroll to the Botanical Gardens, where there's plenty of beautiful scenery.

Degraves Street, Melbourne CBD
Want to capture Melbourne's love for coffee, brunch, and generally doing nothing? Degraves street is always busy and has a vibrant atmosphere. You may even spot newly weds migrating there in their wedding attire just to take photos.

St Kilda beach
Definitely not one of the prettiest beaches, but St Kilda still has a great atmosphere. Whether you walk along the pier to spot the penguins, or walk along the beach front to marvel at the sand art and water sports, there's definitely a few great opportunities to take some good shots.

Naked for Satan, Brunswick Street, Fitzroy
This rooftop is popular for its amazing view. You might have to wait in line to get to the rooftop, but at least you can do it with a delicious drink in your hand.

Bellbird Picnic Area @ Yarra Bend Park
This place is filled with flying foxes, you'll be sure to spot thousands of them in the early evening.
