The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Head to Melbourne Central and Federation Squarefor plenty of shopping. Visiting The Great Ocean Road and St. Kilda Beach will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Kitty Miller Bay (in Ventnor), Quealy Winemakers (in Balnarring) and Cowes Beach (in Cowes). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck, stroll through Sandridge Beach, and enjoy the sand and surf at Cape Woolamai Beach.
