Melton is an urban area within metropolitan Melbourne, Australia located 35 km west from the capital's central business district. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Animal Land Children's Farm and Adrenaline & Extreme Tours. Step out of the city life by going to Werribee Open Range Zoo and Melton Botanic Garden. Get out of town with these interesting Melton side-trips: St Anne's Winery (in Bacchus Marsh), Altona (Cherry Lake Altona & Altona Beach) and Werribee (Heathdale Glen Orden Wetlands, Werribee River Park, & more). There's lots more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Organ Pipes National Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Our Lady Ta' Pinu Shrine, and get lost in a book at Bacchus Marsh Visitor Information Centre.

To find reviews, maps, photos, and more tourist information, use the Melton visit planner.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Melton is an approximately 13-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Melton due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Kuala Lumpur in December, plan for slightly colder days and much colder nights in Melton: temperatures range from 28°C by day to 14°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Wed) early enough to travel to Dandenong.
