The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Step off the beaten path and head to Eastern Beach Reserve and Fitzroy Gardens. Bring the kids along to Ballarat Wildlife Park and Melbourne Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Melbourne: Art Gallery of Ballarat (in Ballarat) and Dandenong Ranges National Park (in Dandenong). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, enjoy breathtaking views from Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, explore and take pictures at Rod Laver Arena, and meet the residents at Melbourne Zoo.

To find ratings, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Melbourne travel planner .
