The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Eastern Beach Reserve and Gunnamatta Beach. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Bells Beach and 13th Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Melbourne: Ocean Beach (in Nelson), Somers Beach (in Somers) and Dandenong Ranges National Park (in Dandenong). And it doesn't end there: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Melbourne Zoo, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, hunt for treasures at Degraves Street, and take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck 88.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Melbourne International Airport. In December in Melbourne, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 14°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
