Flower gardens and graceful, tree-lined boulevards add a refined air to Melbourne, regarded as the hub of Australia’s cultural, intellectual and financial life – at least by Melbournians! Modern skyscrapers mingle comfortably with Victorian homes, and an aura of upper-class elegance pervades. If you find country pleasures more appealing, ride the historic steam train “Puffing Billy” past forests and farms, before having lunch at a Yarra Glen vineyard.
Halfway between Sydney and Melbourne, on the East Coast of Australia, lies the sleepy, little coastal town of Eden. Jutting out into Twofold Bay, the third deepest natural harbour in the southern hemisphere, this charming town is right on the edge of the ‘Humpback Highway’.
The area is renowned for being one of the few places in the world where humpback whales feed on their southern migration. Every year, between September and November, the region plays host to thousands of humpbacks heading home to Antarctica.
Mark Twain called it “the wonder of the world”. James Michener wrote, “It is a thing of beauty, a fairy-tale body of water”. With an area that sprawls 670 square miles, Sydney is one of the largest cities in the world. But it’s the exquisite Sydney Harbour that draws world-wide acclaim – that, along with its magnificent Opera House. And with nearly three days, you’ll have plenty of time to go exploring.
