The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Kick off your visit on the 4th (Sat): see the interesting displays at Melbourne Museum, then enjoy breathtaking views from Eureka Skydeck 88, and then admire the natural beauty at Fitzroy Gardens. Keep things going the next day: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Victoria, learn about all things military at Shrine of Remembrance, and then stroll through St. Kilda Beach.

For other places to visit, photos, maps, and more tourist information, use the Melbourne trip planner .

Sydney to Melbourne is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Sydney in August, with highs in Melbourne at 16°C and lows at 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sun) early enough to drive to Torquay.

Torquay

Torquay
Set against the stark but scenic coastline of the Bass Strait--the body of water separating Victoria and Tasmania--Torquay is a prime location for surfing and beach life in general.
Start off your visit on the 6th (Mon): admire all the interesting features of The Great Ocean Road.

Plan my Torquay trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by car from Melbourne to Torquay takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train. In August, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
