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 Walking tours and Panorama Garden Estate. Change things up with these side-trips from Melbourne: William Ricketts Sanctuary (in Mount Dandenong), National Rhododendron Gardens (in Olinda) and Morgan Vineyards (in Seville). Spend the 20th (Sun) on a tasty journey with a beer tour and tasting. Spend the 25th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: get your game on at Zero Latency, identify plant and animal life at Lake Wendouree, learn insider's secrets on a distillery tour, and indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink.

For reviews, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Melbourne online trip maker .
