The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Melbourne Zoo and Melbourne Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Melbourne: Heritage Golf & Country Club (in Chirnside Park), Werribee Open Range Zoo (in Werribee) and The Great Ocean Road (in Torquay). Dedicate the 27th (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, enjoy the sand and surf at St. Kilda Beach, take a memorable tour with Melbourne Boat Hire, and learn about all things military at Shrine of Remembrance.
