Tucked away on a beautiful inlet in far-east Gippsland is Mallacoota, a popular year-round coastal destination that enjoys Victoria's warmest winter temperatures and cool ocean breezes in summer, with the bonus of its proximity to the magnificent Croajingolong National Park.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Pambula Beach and Genoa Peak Walk. Step out of the city life by going to Ben Boyd National Park and Panboola Wetlands. There's more to do: hike along Mallacoota Coastal Walks and brush up on your military savvy at WW11 Bunker Museum.

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Take a break from the city and head to Eastern Beach Reserve and Ocean Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bells Beach and Dandenong Ranges National Park. Go for a jaunt from Melbourne to Barwon Heads to see 13th Beach about 1h 30 min away. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Melbourne Zoo, take in panoramic vistas at Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, learn about all things military at Shrine of Remembrance, and admire the landmark architecture of Royal Exhibition Building.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Melbourne road trip planning site .

You can drive from Alpine National Park to Melbourne in 5 hours. In December, daytime highs in Melbourne are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
