The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Attractions like Melbourne Museum and Werribee Open Range Zoo make great kid-friendly stops. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Shrine of Remembrance, see the interesting displays at National Sports Museum, don't miss a visit to The Wheeler Centre, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Patrick's Cathedral.
