The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.

Dedicate the 5th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Melbourne Zoo, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Victoria, and contemplate the long history of Shrine of Remembrance.

Queensland’s biggest town and state capital, Brisbane has an attractive, manicured image based around its riverside aesthetic as well as the contrast between its high-rise center and extensive urban greenery.
Step out of the city life by going to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Surfer's Paradise Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Brisbane: Maleny (Maleny Dairies & Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve), Buderim Forest Park (in Buderim) and Point Cartwright (in Mooloolaba). Pack the 12th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Sea World Theme Park. There's still lots to do: let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands, get in on the family fun at Warner Bros. Movie World, admire the natural beauty at City Botanic Gardens, and get great views at Mount Coot-tha Lookout.
