Melbourne

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Step off the beaten path and head to Balloon Rides and Werribee Open Range Zoo. Change things up with a short trip to Lake Daylesford in Daylesford (about 1h 30 min away). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, see the interesting displays at Melbourne Museum, don't miss a visit to Block Arcade, and appreciate the history behind Shrine of Remembrance.
