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 Shrine of Remembrance and St Paul's Cathedral. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Art Gallery of Ballarat and Degraves Street. Step out of Melbourne with an excursion to Ballarat Wildlife Park in Ballarat--about 1h 55 min away. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck 88, make a trip to Lygon Street, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Victoria.
