St Kilda

St Kilda ©
St Kilda is an inner suburb (neighbourhood) of the metropolitan area of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 6 km south-east of Melbourne's Central Business District. Shop till you drop at McClelland Gallery & Sculpture Park and Chadstone - The Fashion Capital. Museum-lovers will get to explore Scienceworks and ArtYarramunua Art Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Werribee Open Range Zoo (in Werribee), Mentone beach (in Mentone) and St Anne's Winery (in Bacchus Marsh). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at St. Kilda Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Christ Church St Kilda, take in nature's colorful creations at Rippon Lea Estate, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Brighton Beach.

To plan St Kilda vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Goa, India to St Kilda is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. You'll lose 4 hours traveling from Goa to St Kilda due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Goa in January: high temperatures in St Kilda hover around 30°C and lows are around 17°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Wed) so you can travel to Canberra.

A planned city with streets laid out in elaborate, geometric patterns and founded specifically to serve as the capital of the emerging Australian state, Canberra has a self-sufficient atmosphere.
Mugga-Mugga Cottage and Lanyon Drive Cemetery will appeal to history buffs. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Australian War Memorial and Questacon. When in Canberra, make a side trip to see Bungendore Wood Works Gallery in Bungendore, approximately 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Australia, view the masterpieces at Strathnairn Gallery, browse the exhibits of Canberra Glassworks, and take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Australia.

Located 11 km (7 mi) across the harbor from Sydney, a holiday in Manly combines quiet neighborhood charm and coastal attractions, all the while placing you within easy access to the big city.
Appreciate the collections at Aboriginal Fine Art and Craft and Aboriginal Dreamtime Fine Art Gallery. Head to Mosman Art Gallery and Joel Coleman Galleryfor some retail therapy. Change things up with these side-trips from Manly: Barrenjoey Lighthouse (in Palm Beach), Ingleside (Baha'i House of Worship & The Baha'i Temple) and Bilgola Beach (in Bilgola). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Shelly Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Balmoral Beach, Mosman, pause for some serene contemplation at Manly Freshwater Parish, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Taronga Zoo.

Plan my trip to Manly with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Getting from Canberra to Manly by combination of flight and ferry takes about 3 hours. Other options: drive; or do a combination of bus and ferry. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Canberra in February since evenings lows in Manly dip to 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
