In melbourne, I will take it easy, visiting places like queen Victorial market', degraves st, crown casino, royal melbourne building, rmit, flinders station, block/royal arcade, Lyon st, federation sq. If time permits, gaol jail, st Kildare, botanic garden.
Gor trip will be flexible too, passing by the main attractions bells beach, 12 apo, gold rush town etc.
1. For day 4, I am torn between yarra valley (which consist of places like healesvilles zoo and huge tree ferns, and I never once set foot on a winery before) and the dandenong ranges (huge tree ferns and steam train). In your opinion which would fit in well, taking my entire itinerary into consideration?
2. Is my gor plans of a good pace?
Thank you in advance.
