The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Australian Centre for the Moving Image and Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. Get outdoors at Brighton Beach and Hanging Rock Reserve. Venture out of the city with trips to Ballarat (Art Gallery of Ballarat & Ballarat Botanical Gardens), Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park (in Pearcedale) and Eastern Beach Reserve (in Geelong). Make the 4th (Mon) an awe-inspiring day at Lorne Beach. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Degraves Street, examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, and take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck.

Ahmedabad, India to Melbourne is an approximately 16-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. The time zone changes from India Standard Time (IST) to Australian Eastern Standard Time (Victoria) (AEST), which is usually a 4 hour difference. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Ahmedabad in October: high temperatures in Melbourne hover around 24°C and lows are around 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Tue) to allow time to travel to Sydney.

Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
Anzac Memorial and Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum will appeal to museum buffs. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Bondi Beach and Terrigal Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Sydney: Gosford Regional Gallery (in Gosford), Wentworth Falls (in Wentworth Falls) and Blue Mountains Cultural Centre (in Katoomba). There's still lots to do: trek along Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, enjoy the sand and surf at Bronte Beach, see a show at Sydney Opera House, and stop by Opal Minded.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Sydney trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

You can fly from Melbourne to Sydney in 3.5 hours. Other options are to do a combination of shuttle and flight; or drive.
