The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ballarat Wildlife Park and 13th Beach. Appreciate the collections at Shrine of Remembrance and Art Gallery of Ballarat. Venture out of the city with trips to Eastern Beach Reserve (in Geelong), Ocean Beach (in Nelson) and Sorrento Back Beach (in Sorrento). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, contemplate the long history of Old Melbourne Gaol, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Paul's Cathedral, and admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens.

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airport is Melbourne International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in January, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
