The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Step out of the city life by going to Royal Botanic Gardens and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Shrine of Remembrance and Old Melbourne Gaol. There's lots more to do: get to know the resident critters at Melbourne Zoo, examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity College Chapel, and steep yourself in history at St Paul's Cathedral.

Plan my Melbourne trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Brisbane to Melbourne is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or drive. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Brisbane in May, with highs in Melbourne at 20°C and lows at 9°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Thu) early enough to travel to Sale.
