Melbourne
Melbourne is culturally diverse and offers plenty to keep you entertained. Sip freshly brewed coffee in the hipster hangout of St. Kilda in the morning; in the afternoon, pick up the finer points of Aussie Rules Football ("footy") at Melbourne Cricket Ground. Later, take in the mix of the city's Victorian and modern architecture on a walking tour. After hours, Melbourne doesn't skip a beat—plays, concerts, and nightclubs abound. If you get itchy feet, renowned Yarra Valley wineries and the world's smallest penguins are both just a short drive away.
