The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll get in some beach time at Bells Beach and Brighton Beach. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park and Cape Schanck Lighthouse. Venture out of the city with trips to National Vietnam Veterans Museum (in Newhaven), Cowes (Phillip Island Wildlife Park & Cowes Bazaar and Gallery) and St Augustine's Church (in Creswick). Spend the 22nd (Wed) exploring nature at Point Nepean National Park. There's still lots to do: take in the exciting artwork at Art Gallery of Ballarat, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Daylesford, take in nature's colorful creations at Ballarat Botanical Gardens, and steep yourself in history at Barwon Park.
