Melbourne, the capital of Victoria state, is home to more than 6.4 million people, making it Australia’s second largest city. While the city offers a fantastic array of things to see and do, the huge number of people means you’ll be sharing the sights with lots of others. After seeing the sights, you’ll probably want to get out of town for the day.
Fortunately, for you, the surrounding environs offer a pleasant opportunity to escape the madding crowd. You can take a drive along the Great Ocean Road, stopping to beach comb or surf. You can also sample some great wines on a day trip from Melbourne or maybe get up close and personal with Australia’s favorite animals, the koala and the kangaroo. Enjoy!
