Adelaide

— 5 nights
Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Change things up with a short trip to The Cedars in Hahndorf (about 30 minutes away). Dedicate the 6th (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Adelaide Botanic Garden, get a taste of the local shopping with Rundle Mall, make a trip to Adelaide Oval, and learn about winemaking at National Wine Centre of Australia.

Greater Melbourne travel guide

Beaches · Parks · Gardens
Greater Melbourne extends along the coastline and into the hinterlands, revealing a picturesque landscape composed of rolling hills, lush valleys, and gullies blanketed by thick native forests and vineyards. Greater Melbourne tourism thrives largely thanks to the city of Melbourne's vast selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, art galleries, historic sites, restaurants, shopping malls, and street markets, as well as the region's many natural attractions. Thanks to its proximity to the Yarra Valley and the ocean, a Greater Melbourne vacation allows you to surf in the Pacific, go on a wildlife safari, and travel on Australia's oldest preserved steam train on the very same day.
