The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Popular historic sites such as St. Patrick's Cathedral and Sovereign Hill are in your itinerary. Discover out-of-the-way places like Eastern Beach Reserve and Redesdale Bridge. Venture out of the city with trips to Ballarat (Art Gallery of Ballarat & Ballarat Wildlife Park), Geelong (St Mary of the Angels & Geelong Botanical Gardens) and St George's Lake (in Creswick). Spend the 5th (Sat) exploring nature at Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park. Dedicate the 2nd (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, learn about all things military at Shrine of Remembrance, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Paul's Cathedral, and see the interesting displays at Melbourne Museum.

You can plan Melbourne trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airport is Melbourne International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
