Dedicate the 2nd (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Spend the 11th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Victoria, see the interesting displays at Melbourne Museum, and contemplate the long history of Old Melbourne Gaol.
