The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Bring the kids along to A Maze'N Things and Lake Wendouree. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ballarat Wildlife Park and Churchill Island. Get out of town with these interesting Melbourne side-trips: Ballarat (Ballarat Botanical Gardens & Art Gallery of Ballarat), National Vietnam Veterans Museum (in Newhaven) and Eastern Beach Reserve (in Geelong). There's lots more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Melbourne Zoo, take in nature's colorful creations at Fitzroy Gardens, examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, and take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck 88.
