The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Attractions like Melbourne Zoo and Melbourne Museum make great kid-friendly stops. When in Melbourne, make a side trip to see Werribee Open Range Zoo in Werribee, approximately 42 minutes away. Dedicate the 22nd (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Royal Botanic Gardens, observe the fascinating underwater world at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium, get lost in a book at State Library of Victoria, and soar above the sights with a balloon tour.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, go to the Melbourne journey maker site .
