The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Attractions like Melbourne Zoo and Melbourne Museum make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Melbourne: Werribee Open Range Zoo (in Werribee) and The Great Ocean Road (in Torquay). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, take in panoramic vistas at Eureka Skydeck, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, and have some family-friendly fun at Simulator World.

Plan my day in Melbourne using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam to Melbourne is an approximately 10-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Bandar Seri Begawan to Melbourne. Traveling from Bandar Seri Begawan in November, expect nights in Melbourne to be much colder, around 11°C, while days are slightly colder, around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 26th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Sydney.
