The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Bring the kids along to Ballarat Wildlife Park and Eastern Beach Reserve. Step off the beaten path and head to Lake Daylesford and Dandenong Ranges National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Melbourne: The Enchanted Adventure Garden (in Arthurs Seat), Art Gallery of Ballarat (in Ballarat) and Hepburn Lagoon - Trail Rides (in Hepburn Springs). Dedicate the 6th (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Melbourne Zoo, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Patrick's Cathedral, examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, and admire the natural beauty at Fitzroy Gardens.

For photos, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Melbourne tour itinerary planning tool .

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Melbourne. In April, plan for daily highs up to 23°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) early enough to travel to Port Augusta.

A natural harbor established in 1852, Port Augusta houses one of the most popular tourist attractions of the area, the Wadlata Outback Center.
Step off the beaten path and head to Bowman Park and Mount Remarkable Summit Hike. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Whyalla Conservation Park and Powell Gardens. Venture out of the city with trips to Quorn (Dutchman's Stern Conservation Park & Warren Gorge), Port Pirie (Port Pirie Regional Tourism & Arts Centre & John Pirie Bridge (Bridge to Nowhere)) and Giant Red Gum Tree (in Orroroo). Spend the 12th (Fri) exploring nature at Mount Remarkable National Park. There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden, see the interesting displays at Peterborough Printing Works, take some stellar pictures from Hummock Hill Lookout, and don't miss a visit to Matthew Flinders Red Cliff Lookout.
