The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Appreciate the collections at National Gallery of Victoria and Melbourne Museum. Take a break from the city and head to Warrandyte State Park and The Great Ocean Road. Spend the 7th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: brush up on your military savvy at Shrine of Remembrance, enjoy the sand and surf at St. Kilda Beach, take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck 88, and soar above the sights with a balloon tour.

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.
Escape the urban bustle at Pulpit Rock Lookout and Coachwood Glen Nature Trail. The Rocks and Art Gallery of New South Wales are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Sydney with an excursion to Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum in Faulconbridge--about 1h 20 min away. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Bondi Beach, trek along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, take a stroll through Darling Harbour, and kick back and relax at Coogee Beach.
