The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Get outdoors at Royal Botanic Gardens and St. Kilda Beach. Melbourne Museum and Melbourne Central are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Melbourne with an excursion to The Great Ocean Road in Torquay--about 1h 40 min away. There's lots more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Melbourne Zoo, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, steep yourself in history at Old Melbourne Gaol, and take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck 88.
