The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Ballarat Wildlife Park and Eastern Beach Reserve. Get out of town with these interesting Melbourne side-trips: Art Gallery of Ballarat (in Ballarat) and Lake Daylesford (in Daylesford). The adventure continues: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Melbourne Zoo, engage your brain at Australian Centre for the Moving Image, and take an in-depth tour of Immigration Museum.

Plan my Melbourne trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Dolphin Quay and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Venture out of the city with trips to Fremantle Prison (in Fremantle), Rockingham Beach (in Rockingham) and The Escape Hunt Experience Perth (in South Fremantle). The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, get a sense of history and politics at York Town Hall, steep yourself in history at The Perth Mint, and take some stellar pictures from Fraser Avenue Lookout.
