The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Explore hidden gems such as Lake Wendouree and Healesville Sanctuary. Get in touch with nature at Eastern Beach Reserve and Phillip Island Wildlife Park. Explore Melbourne's surroundings by going to Hepburn Lagoon - Trail Rides (in Hepburn Springs), Sorrento Front Beach (in Sorrento) and Ballarat (Ballarat Botanical Gardens & Ballarat Wildlife Park). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Bells Beach, head off the coast to Churchill Island, identify plant and animal life at Pulpit Rock, and stop by Tyde.

Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
Step out of the city life by going to Canyoning & Rappelling Tours and Terrigal Beach. Visit Palm Beach and Caves Beach for some beach relaxation. Venture out of the city with trips to Govetts Leap (in Blackheath), Kissing Point Park (in Putney) and The Giant Stairway (in Katoomba). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Balmoral Beach, Mosman, stroll through Bronte Beach, appreciate the history behind Mrs Macquarie's Chair, and examine the collection at Hyde Park Barracks Museum.

For where to stay, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Sydney trip itinerary app .
