The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Old Melbourne Gaol and The Gold Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get some historical perspective at Sovereign Hill and Point Lonsdale Lighthouse. Venture out of the city with trips to Maru Koala and Animal Park (in Grantville), Barwon Park (in Winchelsea) and Pulpit Rock (in Cape Schanck). Spend the 6th (Tue) exploring nature at Point Addis Marine National Park. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Eastern Beach Reserve, look for all kinds of wild species at Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, admire the striking features of Royal Exhibition Building, and enjoy the sand and surf at Bells Beach.
