The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Get outdoors at Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park and Melbourne Zoo. Step off the beaten path and head to Degraves Street and Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Melbourne Central, brush up on your military savvy at Shrine of Remembrance, admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, and enjoy breathtaking views from Eureka Skydeck 88.
