The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Melbourne is known for museums, shopping, parks, nightlife, and zoos & aquariums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, learn about all things military at Shrine of Remembrance, and don't miss a visit to Flinders Street Station.

For other places to visit, photos, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Melbourne road trip site .

Chennai, India to Melbourne is an approximately 16-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 4 hours traveling from Chennai to Melbourne. Traveling from Chennai in May, things will get much colder in Melbourne: highs are around 20°C and lows about 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Tue) early enough to travel to Gold Coast.
