The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Attractions like Melbourne Zoo and Eureka Skydeck make great kid-friendly stops. Step out of Melbourne to go to Werribee and see Werribee Open Range Zoo, which is approximately 42 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, don't miss a visit to Flinders Street Station, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and steep yourself in history at Old Melbourne Gaol.
