The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Step out of the city life by going to Ballarat Wildlife Park and Y Water Discovery Centre. Step off the beaten path and head to Eastern Beach Reserve and Bells Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Melbourne: Buckley Falls (in Geelong), Yea Wetlands (in Yea) and Art Gallery of Ballarat (in Ballarat). Spend the 20th (Wed) exploring nature at Point Nepean National Park. Dedicate the 16th (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Ocean Beach, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Daylesford, and get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.
