The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Ocean Road Tours, Melbourne Street Art Tours, Queen Victoria Market, and other attractions you added. Venture out of the city with trips to Sovereign Hill (in Ballarat) and The Great Ocean Road (in Torquay). Dedicate the 1st (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, take an in-depth tour of Immigration Museum, and steep yourself in history at Old Melbourne Gaol.

For traveler tips, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, use the Melbourne day trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airport is Melbourne International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 26°C in November, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.

Head to Summerlands on Philip Island for the chance to see thousands of penguins waddling along the coastline.
You've now added Penguin Parade to your itinerary. On the 5th (Thu), tour the pleasant surroundings at Swan Lake Trail and then look for all kinds of wild species at Penguin Parade. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: tour the pleasant surroundings at Flynns Beach, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at The Nobbies Centre, and then head outdoors with The Nobbies.

Plan my Summerlands trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by car from Melbourne to Summerlands takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of train and car; or take a bus. In December, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 15°C. On the 7th (Sat), you'll travel back home.
