The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Kryal Castle and Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park. Visit Eastern Beach Reserve and Bells Beach for some beach relaxation. Explore Melbourne's surroundings by going to Ballarat Wildlife Park (in Ballarat), Cape Schanck (Pulpit Rock & Cape Schanck Lighthouse) and St Mary of the Angels (in Geelong). Spend the 27th (Sun) exploring nature at Point Nepean National Park. Spend the 30th (Wed) exploring nature at Point Addis Marine National Park. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, visit a coastal fixture at Point Lonsdale Lighthouse, and steep yourself in history at Barwon Park.

For other places to visit, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Melbourne online travel planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Melbourne International Airport. In January, daytime highs in Melbourne are 81°F, while nighttime lows are 58°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
