The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Shrine of Remembrance and Melbourne Museum. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Eastern Beach Reserve and Ballarat Wildlife Park. When in Melbourne, make a side trip to see Art Gallery of Ballarat in Ballarat, approximately 2 hours away. The adventure continues: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, wander the streets of Degraves Street, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Paul's Cathedral, and explore the engaging exhibits at Australian Centre for the Moving Image.
