The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Eastern Beach Reserve and Rod Laver Arena. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Melbourne: Werribee Open Range Zoo (in Werribee), Ocean Beach (in Nelson) and Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery (in Yarra Glen). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, meet the residents at Melbourne Zoo, and explore the activities along Yarra River.

Yulara takes its name from the local Aboriginal words for "howling" and "dingoes," which conveys the town's isolated location in the Outback.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Helicopter Tours and Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre. Venture out of the city with trips to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park (Valley of the Winds, Kata Tjuta, & more). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Uluru, take in the exciting artwork at Walkatjara Art, look for all kinds of wild species at Kuniya Walk, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Uluru Hiking Path.
