Melbourne ©
The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Eastern Beach Reserve and The Enchanted Adventure Garden. Venture out of the city with trips to Ballarat (Art Gallery of Ballarat & Ballarat Wildlife Park), Lake Daylesford (in Daylesford) and Sorrento Back Beach (in Sorrento). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck 88, admire all the interesting features of Rod Laver Arena, and see the interesting displays at Melbourne Museum.

For more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Melbourne visit planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Melbourne International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Melbourne are 78°F, while nighttime lows are 54°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
