The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Go for a jaunt from Melbourne to Werribee to see Werribee Open Range Zoo about 42 minutes away. Dedicate the 7th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Spend the 5th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, take a tour by water with Melbourne Boat Hire, take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck 88, and get lost in a book at State Library of Victoria.
