So much to do and so little time. If you're keen to discover what the city has to offer, add Luna Park and the University of Melbourne to your travel schedule. If you have an extra day to spare, try to stop by the RMIT University and the Melbourne Zoo as well.
We all dote on our furry and feathered friends, but how about getting to know those who are a touch more slippery and slimy? Enjoy a close encounter with the spellbinding animals of the aquatic realm at SEA LIFE Melbourne. Want some more ideas? Quite often the most significant scientific discoveries come from nature. At Melbourne Museum you can find out more about our ever-changing natural world. But there's more. People have said, "This world is but a canvas to our imagination." Marvel at the profound works at National Gallery of Victoria, and take a moment to envision the story behind each piece.
Slip on your headphones and watch a couple of in-flight movies. Before long, you'll be landing at Tullamarine Airport (MEL). It's about 12 miles (19 kilometers) from central Melbourne.
