Melbourne

Melbourne ©
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 St Kilda Pier and Balloon Rides. Attractions like St. Patrick's Cathedral and Australian Sports Museum make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with a short trip to Brighton Beach in Brighton (about 34 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: engage your brain at Australian Centre for the Moving Image, take in the spiritual surroundings of St Paul's Cathedral, pause for some photo ops at Shrine of Remembrance, and take in nature's colorful creations at Rippon Lea Estate.

To see maps and more tourist information, use the Melbourne driving holiday planner.
