The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Do your shopping at Art Gallery of Ballarat and Bruno's Art and Sculpture Garden. Shrine of Remembrance and Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Daylesford (Stony Creek Gallery & Lake Daylesford), Ballarat (Lake Wendouree, Ballarat Wildlife Park, & more) and Eastern Beach Reserve (in Geelong). Spend the 19th (Fri) exploring nature at Point Nepean National Park. Spend the 30th (Tue) exploring nature at Point Addis Marine National Park. There's still lots to do: stroll around Royal Botanic Gardens, admire the natural beauty at Melbourne Zoo, take a memorable drive along The Great Ocean Road, and look for all kinds of wild species at Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park.
