The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to St Paul's Cathedral and Art Gallery of Ballarat. Do some cultural sightseeing at Shrine of Remembrance and Melbourne Central. When in Melbourne, make a side trip to see Ballarat Wildlife Park in Ballarat, approximately 1h 55 min away. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Royal Botanic Gardens, don't miss a visit to Lygon Street, see the interesting displays at Melbourne Museum, and explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Victoria.

Vancouver, Canada to Melbourne is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 18 hours traveling from Vancouver to Melbourne due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Vancouver in August, with highs in Melbourne at 16°C and lows at 6°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Sydney.
