As a sequel to my previous article Top 4 Things to do on Your Birthday in Melbourne, this article lists some more exciting things you could do to celebrate your birthday with a bang.

1. Theatre
As the cultural capital of Australia, Melbourne is home to numerous concerts, shows and musicals throughout the year. A good concert, musical or show could be an exciting way to celebrate your very special day. If you find yourself scratching your head for a suitable suggestion then just browse the websites for Arts Centre Melbourne, Ticketek and Ticketmaster. For instance, the Music of AR Rahman concert in February 2017 at Arts Centre is bound is amaze music lovers while Aladdin the Broadway musical at Her Majesty's Theatre commencing in April 2017 will certainly sweep you off your feet. The Book of Mormon at the Princes Theatre is another noteworthy musical which earned many accolades. For something different, you could pay a visit to the Comics Lounge at 1/26 Errol St, North Melbourne.

2. Unique sports
You could celebrate your birthday by partaking in a unique sport.

Mini golf is a fun sport which may tickle your fancy. Have a look here to find a list of mini golf courses available in Melbourne. Maybe consider the Black Light Mini Golf and Coffin Ride in Docklands where you will be able to play 18 hole glow in the dark black light mini golf and enjoy a 4D simulated ride in a coffin complete with sounds, smells and motion.

For extreme sports, you could look at skydiving by going here. I can personally vouch for the fact that skydiving is a life changing experience. It is the closest you get to flying. As you jump out of an aircraft from 14,000 feet in the sky, you will experience ultimate freedom which will forever be etched in your memory.
