Birthdays are special for everyone and deserve to be celebrated big! It is that special day which comes only once every 365 days and always is the most eagerly awaited day of the Gregorian calendar.

This time round when you are poised to welcome this special day of the year, take note of the following top 4 things you could do in Melbourne to make this special day even more special. Do one or do all of the following activities and have a bucket of fun!

1. Enjoy some Birthday Freebies
We all love freebies. And what better way to celebrate your birthday than with a horde of free stuff. Some of the most prominent free birthday offers include a free ice-cream from Baskin Robbins, a free sumo salad from Sumo Salad, a burrito of your choice from Salsa's, a free 6-inch subway along with a drink from Subway. There are other wonderful free birthday offers like a free boost juice from Boost, a free muffin from Muffin Break, a free cupcake from Brumby's and so on.

However, all these free birthday offers come in a combo deal of registering with the respective loyalty programs (before your birthday) which again are free to join. Now if you are a kid or have a kid then the sky appears to be the limit for freebies. Kids are entitled to a free birthday gift from the Office works Ollie Kid's club, a free meal from Hungry Jacks, a free birthday gift from IGA and so forth. Feel free to find out more at best freebies for kids.

2. Do something different
Your birthday can be your chance to stretch your limits or pay a visit to the wild side. Explore and experience something unique and different. Try your hand at life drawing with a sexy twist. The burlesque bar at Fitzroy offers burlesque life drawing on Thursday evenings at 8pm. For a meagre $15, you are bestowed with the assistance of professional tutors, life models, drawing materials and a steamy burlesque performance thrown in.

If you are feeling more adventurous then why not check out the Princes of the Night male strip show at the Fusion nightclub at the Crown Casino. For an entry fee of $30, you will receive a not-to-be-easily-forgotten male strip show which is guaranteed to get you hot under the collar. You can even snap some pictures with any or all of these gorgeous, eye candies.

3. Pamper yourself
Your birthday is the ultimate excuse to pamper yourself. Let your hair down and stretch yourself out for some delicious indulgence. Head to the Mornington Peninsula hot water springs for a remarkable spa experience. A fee of $35 will buy you an unlimited, full-day access to all that is on offer at the public bathing arena of this day spa. Take your pick from or experience all of the 20 different pools as well as a sauna and a hamam (Turkish Steam Room). And the excellent view of the horizon from the top-most pool is an added bonus.

If you are feeling more extravagant, get a celebrity treatment with one of the numerous packages available which come complete with facial, massage, spa access, golf and much more. Enjoy the luxury of varying the level and extent of the pampering you desire and celebrate your birthday in style.

4. Enjoy a special dinner
Take this opportunity to revel in a sumptuous dinner at one of the many exquisite dining venues in Melbourne. For $80 get an awesome buffet dinner experience at the Melba restaurant. Hop on a moving tram and enjoy a delectable 3-4 course dinner for two from $77 per person at the phenomenal Colonial Tram Car restaurant.

Pay a visit to Melbourne's most expensive restaurant and entice your tastebuds with some exotic French food at the Vue De Monde. Alternatively, enjoy a sea view second to none while savouring some amazing food at the Sails on the Bay. And if you get lucky you may even catch sight of some friendly dolphins basking in the warmth of the setting sun.

Have a terrific birthday and hope all your wishes come hopping your way on this birthday.
