The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Degraves Street and Melbourne Central. Museum-lovers will get to explore Art Gallery of Ballarat and National Gallery of Victoria. Change things up with a short trip to Ballarat Wildlife Park in Ballarat (about 1h 30 min away). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of St Paul's Cathedral, don't miss a visit to Flinders Street Station, admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, and take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck.
