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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Wollongong Head Lighthouse and Nan Tien Temple. Get some historical perspective at The Rocks and Norah Head Lighthouse. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Darling Harbour, explore the world behind art at White Rabbit Gallery, steep yourself in history at Justice & Police Museum, and get to know the fascinating history of Sydney Harbour Circle Walk.

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like William Ricketts Sanctuary and St Paul's Cathedral. Cape Schanck Lighthouse and Rippon Lea Estate are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from Melbourne with a short trip to Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail in Lilydale, about 46 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Melbourne Museum, explore the world behind art at ArtVo, enjoy breathtaking views from Eureka Skydeck, and appreciate the history behind Shrine of Remembrance.

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