The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Explore hidden gems such as Eastern Beach Reserve and Fitzroy Gardens. Your inner history buff will appreciate Shrine of Remembrance and St Paul's Cathedral.

There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, don't miss a visit to Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, and enjoy breathtaking views from Eureka Skydeck 88.
