The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Do your shopping at Melbourne Central and Degraves Street. You'll explore and learn at Melbourne Museum and Buxton Contemporary. Explore Melbourne's surroundings by going to Sovereign Hill (in Ballarat) and Eastern Beach Reserve (in Geelong). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Shrine of Remembrance, look for gifts at Minotaur Entertainment Melbourne, take in the exciting artwork at The Blender Studios, and wander the streets of Collins St/Swanston St.

For reviews, maps, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Melbourne online trip planner .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airport is Melbourne International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 16°C in August, and nighttime lows around 6°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Fri) so you can drive to Brighton.
