Melbourne
The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.

Visit St. Kilda Beach and Sandridge Beach for some beach relaxation. There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, enjoy breathtaking views from Eureka Skydeck 88, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Melbourne Zoo, and brush up on your military savvy at Shrine of Remembrance.
