The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Shrine of Remembrance and National Gallery of Victoria. Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Trin Warren Tam-boore. Take a break from Melbourne with a short trip to Sovereign Hill in Ballarat, about 2 hours away. Dedicate the 21st (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, take an in-depth tour of Immigration Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Melbourne Zoo.
