The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Explore hidden gems such as Eastern Beach Reserve and Ballarat Wildlife Park. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like The Enchanted Adventure Garden and Melbourne Zoo. Get out of town with these interesting Melbourne side-trips: Ocean Beach (in Nelson), 13th Beach (in Barwon Heads) and Art Gallery of Ballarat (in Ballarat). Dedicate the 2nd (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Dandenong Ranges National Park, see the interesting displays at Melbourne Museum, and take in panoramic vistas at Melbourne Star Observation Wheel.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 14°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
