The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Eastern Beach Reserve and Werribee Open Range Zoo. Step out of the city life by going to Ballarat Wildlife Park and Dandenong Ranges National Park. The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Melbourne Zoo, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Patrick's Cathedral, brush up on your military savvy at Shrine of Remembrance, and take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens.

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Palm Beach and Shelly Beach. Kids will enjoy Manly Beach and Australian National Maritime Museum. Change things up with a short trip to Nan Tien Temple in Wollongong (about 1h 30 min away). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Bondi Beach, look and learn at Sydney Observatory, tour the pleasant surroundings at Coogee Beach, and wander the streets of The Rocks.
