The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Explore Melbourne's surroundings by going to The Great Ocean Road (in Torquay) and Werribee Open Range Zoo (in Werribee). On the 20th (Thu), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. Dedicate the 22nd (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Next up on the itinerary: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Melbourne Zoo, contemplate the long history of Old Melbourne Gaol, and examine the collection at Melbourne Museum.
