Melbourne

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Visit Shrine of Remembrance and St Michael's Church for their historical value. Step out of the city life by going to The Great Ocean Road and Melbourne Zoo. There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, contemplate the long history of Old Melbourne Gaol, and tour the water at your own pace with Melbourne Boat Hire.

Make your Melbourne itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Berlin, Germany to Melbourne is an approximately 27-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll lose 9 hours traveling from Berlin to Melbourne due to the time zone difference. Expect a daytime high around 30°C in March, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Sun) to allow time to travel to Sydney.
