The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Degraves Street and Art Gallery of Ballarat are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll discover tucked-away gems like St Paul's Cathedral and Melbourne Central. Step out of Melbourne to go to Ballarat and see Ballarat Wildlife Park, which is approximately 1h 30 min away. The adventure continues: examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, don't miss a visit to Lygon Street, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Victoria.

Plan my day in Melbourne using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Vancouver, Canada to Melbourne is an approximately 19.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 18 hours traveling from Vancouver to Melbourne. Traveling from Vancouver in July, things will get little chillier in Melbourne: highs are around 15°C and lows about 6°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Sydney.
