The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Melbourne Central and Readings Book Shop. Get outdoors at The Great Ocean Road and Melbourne Zoo. Change things up with a short trip to Werribee Open Range Zoo in Werribee (about 42 minutes away). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, stop by Minotaur Entertainment Melbourne, examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, and revel in the low prices at DFO South Wharf.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Melbourne is an approximately 10-hour combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Jakarta to Melbourne due to the time zone difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Jakarta in June, with highs in Melbourne at 16°C and lows at 6°C. On the 15th (Fri), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel to Sydney.
