The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.

And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Botanic Gardens, examine the collection at Melbourne Museum, take a memorable tour with Tours, and pause for some photo ops at Shrine of Remembrance.

Washington DC, USA to Melbourne is an approximately 26-hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of flight and bus. You'll lose 15 hours traveling from Washington DC to Melbourne due to the time zone difference.

Please note that visitors are no longer allowed to trek up Uluru.

Located right in the center of Australia, the national park boasts perhaps the country's most iconic natural symbol and a sacred place for the region's indigenous people--as well as Kata Tjuta, a collection of 36 red rocks forming an equally distinctive sight.
Kick off your visit on the 22nd (Sat): take an in-depth tour of Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, then hike along Kuniya Walk, then contemplate the waterfront views at Mutitjulu Waterhole, and finally explore and take pictures at Uluru. Here are some ideas for day two: appreciate the views at Valley of the Winds, look for all kinds of wild species at Red Desert Reptiles, and then browse the exhibits of Walkatjara Art.
