Melbourne ©
The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Eastern Beach Reserve and Ocean Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Ballarat Wildlife Park and 13th Beach. Explore Melbourne's surroundings by going to Kryal Castle (in Ballarat), Point Leo Beach (in Point Leo) and Bells Beach (in Torquay). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Sorrento Back Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Portsea Back Beach, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

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

Cardiff, UK to Melbourne is an approximately 26-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 10 hours traveling from Cardiff to Melbourne. When traveling from Cardiff in December, plan for much hotter days in Melbourne, with highs around 30°C, while nights are somewhat warmer with lows around 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) early enough to travel to Perth.
