The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Art Gallery of Ballarat and Melbourne Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to Degraves Street and St Paul's Cathedral. Step out of Melbourne with an excursion to Ballarat Wildlife Park in Ballarat--about 1h 30 min away. There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Victoria, pause for some photo ops at Shrine of Remembrance, don't miss a visit to Lygon Street, and take a stroll through Melbourne Central.

To see maps, reviews, photos, and tourist information, go to the Melbourne online sightseeing planner.
