The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Visit Old Melbourne Gaol and Shrine of Remembrance for their historical value. Visiting St. Kilda Beach and Half Moon Bay will get you outdoors.

Spend the 15th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Dedicate the 16th (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area.
