The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Visit Eastern Beach Reserve and Bells Beach for some beach relaxation. Shrine of Remembrance and St Paul's Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Melbourne: The Enchanted Adventure Garden (in Arthurs Seat), Ballarat (Kryal Castle & Ballarat Wildlife Park) and Ocean Beach (in Nelson). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Old Melbourne Gaol, enjoy breathtaking views from Eureka Skydeck 88, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Melbourne Zoo.

In December in Melbourne, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 14°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
