The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Get a sense of the local culture at Art Gallery of Ballarat and Shrine of Remembrance. Visiting Ballarat Wildlife Park and Y Water Discovery Centre will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Melbourne: Bruno's Art and Sculpture Garden (in Marysville) and Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery (in Yarra Glen). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Degraves Street, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Patrick's Cathedral, and get a taste of the local shopping with Melbourne Central.

To see reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Melbourne trip maker website .
