The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You've now added Twelve Apostles to your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Melbourne side-trips: The Great Ocean Road (in Torquay) and Werribee Open Range Zoo (in Werribee). There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, get lost in a book at State Library Victoria, examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, and contemplate the long history of Shrine of Remembrance.
