The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Take a break from the city and head to Koala Conservation Centre and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Do your shopping at Melbourne Central and Tyde. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Melbourne: Phillip Island Wildlife Park (in Cowes) and Churchill Island Marine National Park (in Newhaven). There's more to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens and learn about all things military at Shrine of Remembrance.

To see ratings, photos, maps, and tourist information, read Melbourne vacation planner.

Manila, Philippines to Melbourne is an approximately 11-hour combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Manila to Melbourne due to the time zone difference. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Manila in April, with highs in Melbourne at 23°C and lows at 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can travel to Sydney.

Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Rocks and Justice & Police Museum. Take a break from the city and head to Manly Beach and Camp Cove. There's much more to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Sydney Fish Market, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, trek along The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk, and make a trip to Queen Victoria Building (QVB).

Plan my Sydney trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Getting from Melbourne to Sydney by flight takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: do a combination of shuttle and flight; or drive. Traveling from Melbourne in April, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Sydney, with lows around 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
