The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Melbourne is known for museums, shopping, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, contemplate the long history of Old Melbourne Gaol, and indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour.

For other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, go to the Melbourne trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major aiport is Melbourne International Airport. In March, daily temperatures in Melbourne can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) to allow time to drive to Ventnor.

Start off your visit on the 27th (Fri): get to know the resident critters at The Nobbies Centre, then kick back and relax at Kitty Miller Bay, then get engrossed in the history at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, and finally step off the mainland to explore Koala Conservation Centre. Here are some ideas for day two: get in on the family fun at A Maze'N Things, then learn about all things military at National Vietnam Veterans Museum, then look for all kinds of wild species at Phillip Island Wildlife Park, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Cape Woolamai Beach.

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

You can drive from Melbourne to Ventnor in 2 hours. In March in Ventnor, expect temperatures between 28°C during the day and 16°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 29th (Sun) to allow time for the car ride back home.
