Explore Melbourne's surroundings by going to Eastern Beach Reserve (in Geelong), Dandenong Ranges National Park (in Dandenong) and Brighton Beach (in Brighton). Spend the 25th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Bells Beach, see the interesting displays at Coal Creek Community Park and Museum, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St Paul's Cathedral.
