The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Get outdoors at Eastern Beach Reserve and Ballarat Wildlife Park. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bells Beach and Ocean Beach. Take a break from Melbourne with a short trip to Art Gallery of Ballarat in Ballarat, about 2 hours away. And it doesn't end there: brush up on your military savvy at Shrine of Remembrance, take in the spiritual surroundings of St Paul's Cathedral, admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, and contemplate the long history of St. Patrick's Cathedral.
