The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
On the 15th (Mon), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, get lost in a book at State Library of Victoria, contemplate the long history of Old Melbourne Gaol, and don't miss a visit to Flinders Street Station.

To see other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Melbourne driving holiday planner.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Melbourne is an approximately 11-hour flight. The time zone changes from Malaysia Time (MYT) to Australian Eastern Standard Time (Victoria) (AEST), which is usually a 2 hour difference. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur in October, expect Melbourne to be colder, temps between 24°C and 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) to allow time to travel to Launceston.

Lying in the Tamar Valley and surrounded by forested hills, the grid-patterned city of Launceston boasts shaded avenues, vibrant street life, and a cosmopolitan atmosphere.
On the 17th (Wed), steep yourself in history at Woolmers Estate, look for all kinds of wild species at Cataract Gorge Reserve, then view the masterpieces at Design Centre Tasmania, and finally don't miss a visit to The Town Clock. On the 18th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: steep yourself in history at Entally Estate, then appreciate the views at The Tamar Valley, then stop by Gourlay's Sweet Shop, and finally tour the pleasant surroundings at City Park.

Plan a trip to Launceston easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Traveling by flight from Melbourne to Launceston takes 4 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of ferry and car. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Melbourne in October, with highs in Launceston at 20°C and lows at 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can drive to Hobart.

Snaking up the side of a rounded, tree-dotted hill, Hobart sits between Tasmania’s sprawling mountains and the vast estuary of the River Derwent.
Start off your visit on the 19th (Fri): look for all kinds of wild species at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, see the interesting displays at Mona, then kick back and relax at Bellerive Beach, and finally take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington. Here are some ideas for day two: step off the mainland to explore Macquarie Island, shop like a local with Salamanca Market, then take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, and finally take a leisurely stroll along Constitution Dock.
