The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Take a break from the city and head to Eastern Beach Reserve and Royal Botanic Gardens. Let the collections at Melbourne Museum and National Gallery of Victoria capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Melbourne side-trips: National Wool Museum (in Geelong) and Ballarat (Ballarat Botanical Gardens, Sovereign Hill, & more). The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at Shrine of Remembrance, take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck 88, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Paul's Cathedral, and contemplate the long history of St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Byron Bay

Named after Lord Byron's grandfather, Byron Bay is not only famous as the easternmost point of Australia, but even more so as one of the liveliest vacation spots in the country.
Escape the urban bustle at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Discover out-of-the-way places like Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Spas. When in Byron Bay, make a side trip to see Fingal Head Lighthouse in Fingal Head, approximately 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, visit a coastal fixture at Cape Byron Lighthouse, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lennox Head Beach, and take some stellar pictures from Broken Head Nature Reserve.

To find maps, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Byron Bay trip itinerary builder site .
