The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Melbourne: Sovereign Hill (in Ballarat) and Werribee Open Range Zoo (in Werribee). Dedicate the 20th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Victoria, and get lost in a book at State Library of Victoria.

Vancouver, Canada to Melbourne is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 18 hours traveling from Vancouver to Melbourne due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Vancouver in November, plan for much hotter days and somewhat warmer nights in Melbourne: temperatures range from 26°C by day to 11°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sat) so you can go by car to Torquay.
