Australia's Garden City

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll get in some beach time at St. Kilda Beach and Lorne Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Koala Conservation Centre and Balloon Rides. Change things up with these side-trips from Melbourne: A Maze'N Things (in Cowes), Ballarat (Art Gallery of Ballarat & Sovereign Hill) and Werribee Open Range Zoo (in Werribee). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Victoria, examine the collection at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, contemplate the long history of Old Melbourne Gaol, and indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour.

To see other places to visit, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Melbourne trip planner.

Auckland, New Zealand to Melbourne is an approximately 7-hour flight. Traveling from Auckland to Melbourne, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Expect slightly colder evenings in Melbourne when traveling from Auckland in April, with lows around 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Mon) early enough to travel to Brisbane.

Australia's New World City

Queensland’s biggest town and state capital, Brisbane has an attractive, manicured image based around its riverside aesthetic as well as the contrast between its high-rise center and extensive urban greenery.
Artworks in Clay by Anne Gentry-Smith and Caloundra Regional Art Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visit Mooloolaba Beach and Bulcock Beach for some beach relaxation. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Brisbane: Buderim (Kawana Beach, Atrium Gallery at Buderim Craft Cottage, &more), Maroochydore Beach (in Maroochydore) and Caloundra (Kings Beach & Seaview Art Gallery). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, contemplate the waterfront views at The Brisbane River, and get your game on at SunJet Simulations.

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

Fly from Melbourne to Brisbane in 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Melbourne in April: high temperatures in Brisbane hover around 30°C and lows are around 19°C. On the 26th (Sun), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
