The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Sovereign Hill and National Gallery of Victoria are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Old Melbourne Gaol and Parliament House of Victoria will appeal to history buffs. Step out of Melbourne with an excursion to The Great Ocean Road in Torquay--about 1h 20 min away. There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, steep yourself in history at St. Patrick's Cathedral, examine the collection at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.
