The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ballarat Wildlife Park and Eastern Beach Reserve. Visiting Bells Beach and Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Melbourne: Werribee Open Range Zoo (in Werribee) and Art Gallery of Ballarat (in Ballarat). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Melbourne Zoo, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and enjoy the sand and surf at St. Kilda Beach.

Sydney
Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
Kids will enjoy Manly Beach and Coogee Beach. Visiting Bondi Beach and Wentworth Falls will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Sydney side-trips: Katoomba (Echo Point Lookout & Canyoning & Rappelling Tours), Everglades Historic House and Gardens (in Leura) and Shelly Beach (in Manly). There's lots more to do: hike along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, kick back and relax at Balmoral Beach, Mosman, tour the pleasant surroundings at The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk, and take in nature's colorful creations at The Royal Botanic Garden.

Plan my trip to Sydney with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

You can fly from Melbourne to Sydney in 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and train; or drive. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Melbourne in April since evenings lows in Sydney dip to 59°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
