The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Melbourne Central and National Gallery of Victoria are good opportunities to explore the local culture. For shopping fun, head to Degraves Street or Dagmar Rousset. Change things up with a short trip to Cowes Beach in Cowes (about 1h 30 min away). Next up on the itinerary: admire all the interesting features of Royal Botanic Gardens, enjoy the sand and surf at St. Kilda Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Half Moon Bay, and examine the collection at Melbourne Museum.
