The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Change things up with these side-trips from Melbourne: Werribee Open Range Zoo (in Werribee), The Great Ocean Road (in Torquay) and Sovereign Hill (in Ballarat). Dedicate the 3rd (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, contemplate the long history of Old Melbourne Gaol, make a trip to Block Arcade, and get lost in a book at State Library of Victoria.
