Melbourne

Australia's Garden City

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery and Melbourne Central. Explore hidden gems such as St Paul's Cathedral and Degraves Street. Step out of Melbourne to go to Pearcedale and see Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, which is approximately 1 hour away. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, enjoy breathtaking views from Eureka Skydeck, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Melbourne Zoo.
