The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to A Maze'N Things and Lake Daylesford. Kids will appreciate attractions like Melbourne Zoo and Churchill Island. Change things up with these side-trips from Melbourne: Hepburn Lagoon - Trail Rides (in Hepburn Springs), National Vietnam Veterans Museum (in Newhaven) and Ballarat (Ballarat Botanical Gardens, Ballarat Wildlife Park, & more). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, admire the striking features of Royal Exhibition Building, take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck 88, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airport is Melbourne International Airport. In May in Melbourne, expect temperatures between 20°C during the day and 9°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
