Melbourne

— 4 nights

Australia's Garden City

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Appreciate the collections at National Gallery of Victoria and Federation Square. Get a sense of the local culture at Melbourne Central and Melbourne Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Melbourne side-trips: Conservation Hill Reserve (in Rhyll) and Phillip Island Wildlife Park (in Cowes). There's more to do: identify plant and animal life at Trin Warren Tam-boore and stop by Australian By Design.

Plan my Melbourne trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to Melbourne is an approximately 12-hour flight. Traveling from Ho Chi Minh City to Melbourne, you'll lose 3 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Ho Chi Minh City in May, expect Melbourne to be cooler, temps between 20°C and 9°C. On the 10th (Sun), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Sydney.

The Harbour City

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.
Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum and Blue Mountains Cultural Centre will appeal to museum buffs. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Darling Harbour and The Rocks. Change things up with a short trip to Valley Heights Locomotive Depot Heritage Museum in Valley Heights (about 1h 5 min away). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Bondi Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, explore the world behind art at Art Gallery of New South Wales, and get engrossed in the history at Hyde Park Barracks.
