The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Step off the beaten path and head to Werribee Open Range Zoo and Fitzroy Gardens. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Degraves Street, take an in-depth tour of Immigration Museum, browse the different shops at Melbourne Central, and contemplate the waterfront views at Yarra River.

For reviews, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, use the Melbourne day trip planner .

Hyderabad, India to Melbourne is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 4 hours traveling from Hyderabad to Melbourne. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Hyderabad in March, with highs in Melbourne at 30°C and lows at 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Tue) early enough to travel to Tamborine Mountain.

Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
Explore hidden gems such as Shelly Beach and Canyoning & Rappelling Tours. You'll get in some beach time at Palm Beach and Caves Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Wentworth Falls (in Katoomba), Govetts Leap (in Blackheath) and Leura (Everglades Historic House and Gardens & Leura Cascades). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Terrigal Beach, stroll through Balmoral Beach, Mosman, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, and race across the water with a speed boat tour.

Plan my Sydney trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
