Melbourne
The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Visiting The Great Ocean Road and Melbourne Zoo will get you outdoors. Visit Shrine of Remembrance and St. Patrick's Cathedral for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Werribee Open Range Zoo (in Werribee) and Sovereign Hill (in Ballarat). On the 13th (Mon), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. Dedicate the 15th (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, explore the engaging exhibits at Australian Centre for the Moving Image, kick back and relax at St. Kilda Beach, and get lost in a book at State Library of Victoria.
