The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.

There's much more to do: wander the streets of Melbourne Central, pause for some serene contemplation at Scots Church, get a taste of the local shopping with Degraves Street, and get interesting insight from Tours.
