The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Visit Shrine of Remembrance and Old Melbourne Gaol for their historical value. Get a sense of the local culture at Melbourne Central and Chapel Street. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Melbourne Museum, stop by Ambiance Gifts, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Victoria, and admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens.

Plan my day in Melbourne using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Chengdu, China to Melbourne is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, subway, and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Chengdu to Melbourne. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Chengdu in May, with highs in Melbourne at 20°C and lows at 9°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Mon) early enough to travel to Sydney.

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 Manly Beach and Coogee Beach. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Bondi Beach and Clovelly. Spend the 18th (Fri) exploring nature at Sydney Harbour National Park. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of The Rocks, hike along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, hunt for treasures at Sydney Fish Market, and catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House.
