The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Art Gallery of Ballarat and Lake Wendouree. Family-friendly places like Ballarat Wildlife Park and Royal Botanic Gardens will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Melbourne side-trips: Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit (in Ventnor), Cowes (Phillip Island Wildlife Park, Tyde, & more) and Eastern Beach Reserve (in Geelong). Spend the 18th (Thu) exploring nature at Point Nepean National Park. Spend the 14th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, take in nature's colorful creations at The Enchanted Adventure Garden, and meet the residents at Melbourne Zoo.
