  1. I’ve just come back from a day trip to Melbourne (from Tasmania) and in turn took a day trip to Phillip Island – it was incredible so I’m so glad to see that it made your list here. And obviously the Great Ocean Road is a must, being one of the most epic coastal roads in Australia … and the world! Melbourne for the win right!

  2. I visited Australia a few years ago but never made it to Melbourne. I would absolutely love to see those penguins! And I think the Queen Victoria Market would be great – markets like that are a perfect way to get to know a culture and its food!

  3. I love the idea of going to Australia, I just don’t know that I could do the flight…lol…I think I would love to see the outback and go hiking. I would be incredible to experience the animal life first hand. And then I would visit the towns….
