The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Step out of the city life by going to Ballarat Wildlife Park and Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park. Shrine of Remembrance and Melbourne Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Melbourne's surroundings by going to Eastern Beach Reserve (in Geelong), 13th Beach (in Barwon Heads) and Art Gallery of Ballarat (in Ballarat). Spend the 26th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Bells Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Y Water Discovery Centre, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Dandenong Ranges National Park, and meet the residents at Werribee Open Range Zoo.

Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
Get outdoors at Kiama Blowhole and Wentworth Falls. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Nan Tien Temple and Shelly Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Sydney: Palm Beach (in Palm Beach), Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum (in Faulconbridge) and Canyoning & Rappelling Tours (in Katoomba). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, don't miss a visit to Sydney Harbour Bridge, wander the streets of Darling Harbour, and enjoy the sand and surf at Coogee Beach.
