As part of sight-seeing around Melbourne, there is one experience you definitely don't want to miss! Every hour along the river bank at Crown Casino, the flames flash for a couple minutes. It is quite an experience because the light created from the flames lights up the whole area and the heat that the flames gives off is really quite intense considering how high up they are. You definitely wouldn't want to be anywhere near to them when they go off. This basically occurs all the way along the river bank and every hour on the hour you can hear them charge up and release the flames. Best time to go would be at night to see the full effect as they light up the area. This is all free but you may need to pay for parking in the Crown Casino car park.
