The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Step out of the city life by going to Royal Botanic Gardens and Sandridge Beach. Shrine of Remembrance and Old Melbourne Gaol will appeal to history buffs. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Melbourne Central, get to know the resident critters at Melbourne Zoo, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Victoria, and get a taste of the local shopping with Collins St/Swanston St.
