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 Lake Daylesford. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Collins St/Swanston St and Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Melbourne: Bruno's Art and Sculpture Garden (in Marysville), Ballarat (Art Gallery of Ballarat, Ballarat Wildlife Park, & more) and St Mary of the Angels (in Geelong). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of St Paul's Cathedral, get to know the resident critters at Melbourne Zoo, contemplate the long history of Old Melbourne Gaol, and take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck.
