The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Melbourne Central and Shrine of Remembrance. Head to Degraves Street and DFO South Wharffor some retail therapy. Venture out of the city with trips to The Great Ocean Road (in Torquay), Cowes (Koala Conservation Centre & Phillip Island Wildlife Park) and Sovereign Hill (in Ballarat). Spend the 6th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: get the lay of the land with Royal Botanic Gardens, take a stroll through Collins St/Swanston St, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Victoria, and shop like a local with Chapel Street.
