        Melbourne is in Australia.  New Zealand is a completely different country, although we do like to claim New Zealand actors as our own.

      Hello Jaspals, I live in Melbourne!  I love St Kilda, but if you want to get out of town there are some lovely little places in the Dandenong Ranges.  I also love Daylesford. The Great Ocean Road is fantastic for a drive if you have a car too.   You've got to be kidding me about the weather though.  Bring on Spring, I say!

      I'd say the same as May.  Melbourne is great for the culture - lots of music, different dance genres etc - but the best sights are out of town.

      Visit Daylesford and Hepburn Springs for the health-giving spas, the Grampians for beautiful mountain scenery and Ballarat for the best reconstructed historic township I've ever seen.

        Yes!  Sovereign Hill, Ballarat is a fantastic recreation of a what Ballarat was like during the Gold Rush.

      I lived in Melb for many years & my favourite spot was the Royal Botanic Gardens near the city. The gardens are beautiful & peaceful & free! You can spend all day there - take a picnic with you or buy a coffee at the kiosk within the gardens - and then walk along the Yarra River into Southbank. A lovely day out & it hasn't cost you anything. (except the parking metres ofcourse!) It wouldn't be Melb without the parking metres lol.

        So true, the gardens are beautiful and it is a lovely walk to Southbank.  Good suggestion!

    I live about 3 hours from Melbourne and travel there regularly, my favorite thing about Melbourne is the drive back home. It's a nice place to visit, the markets, zoo, casino, nightlife but I wouldn't live there.

    Phillip Island is one of the top places to visit from Melbourne either for a day trip or for a night or two.

    Dear SidneyMorgan. Phillip Island is certainly a worth place to visit again and again. Little penguins parade is best thing that you can't miss. I visited Philip Island with my sweet heart friend in July this year.

      You are right Jaspal, Little Penguins parade is awesome. But apart from this there are so many other things as well which one can see and enjoy.

      There are so many eco-tourism and natural attractions that are available. Some of my favorite are Seal Rock, Koala Conservation center, Rhyll Inlet. There is another interesting fact about Phillip island, it is home of the Australia Motorcycle Grand Prix and world super bike round.

    I went to Melbourne a couple of times, and one of the places I visited was Mt Buller, and it was in July, means winter... nice to see snow and skiing, coming from a country without a distinct season other than sun and rain, this is different.

    Melbourne Zoo is a must-see. Established in 1862, this is the oldest zoo in the world, and one of the best. There are approximately 3000 animals in this zoo, including the popular kangaroos, koalas, wombats, wallabies, echidnas, and platypuses. Additionally, rather than locked in cages, most animals here live in almost natural environment or well-tended gardens.

    I believe Melbourne is the setting for the TV show, "Underbelly".  Is there really organized crime in Australia?  I was hoping it wasn't true.
