The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Art Gallery of Ballarat and Melbourne Central. Museum-lovers will get to explore Melbourne Museum and National Gallery of Victoria. Step out of Melbourne with an excursion to Ballarat Wildlife Park in Ballarat--about 1h 30 min away. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Degraves Street, make a trip to Flinders Street Station, appreciate the history behind Shrine of Remembrance, and take in nature's colorful creations at Melbourne Zoo.
