We are planning on 2-3 days sightseeing within the city of Melbourne. We will be cruising New Zealand and Australia, and Melbourne is our disembarkation port. We are on the ship overnight in Melbourne, and we are planning to extend our visit to Melbourne on land post-cruise. We are interested in seeing some of the sights that lie outside of Melbourne that can be visited in one day, returning to the city of Melbourne at night.
Where do you recommend we go, and how many days should we plan? One day outside the city? Two days outside the city? Three days outside the city?
I need to make a decision now so that I can book my flights. Please help.
