Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Granite Island and South Australian Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Adelaide: Island Beach (in Kangaroo Island), Beerenberg Farm (in Hahndorf) and Cape Willoughby Lighthouse Keepers Heritage Accommodation (in Willoughby). Dedicate the 29th (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Cleland Wildlife Park, indulge your taste buds at Haigh's Chocolates Glenelg, steep yourself in history at Old Gum Tree Reserve, and take in the waterfront at Glenelg Pier.

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.

There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Dandenong Ranges National Park, explore the engaging exhibits at Australian Centre for the Moving Image, stop by Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.
