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 Inpirock 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.

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 Art Gallery of New South Wales will appeal to museum buffs. Shop till you drop at Blue Mountains Cultural Centre and Billich Gallery. 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: take a stroll through Darling Harbour, examine the collection at Hyde Park Barracks, see a show at Sydney Opera House, and identify plant and animal life at Tambourine Bay Reserve and Warraroon Reserve Walk.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Sydney trip itinerary planning site.

You can fly from Melbourne to Sydney in 4 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Melbourne in May, with highs in Sydney at 24°C and lows at 14°C. You'll have a few hours on the 15th (Fri) to wrap things up before traveling home.
