Step outside the city limits and explore the surroundings with this list of the best day trips from Melbourne:

Relax yourself to Great Ocean Road

About 200 kilometers from Melbourne, the Great Ocean Road is one of Australia's most spectacular stretches of coastline and a top road trip destination. Take in breathtaking sights of long sandy beaches and dramatic cliffs along the way, and see some of the most spectacular coastal scenery on Earth, including the Twelve Apostles limestone stacks and the Gibson's Steps, site of a historic clifflines. Bushwalk in Great Otway National Park, and try out your koala-spotting skills at Kennett River.

Hates cold? Say no more because we have Mount Buller

Mount Buller, one of Australia's most popular ski resorts, about a three-hour drive from Melbourne. Mount Buller has the most extensive lift system of all the Victorian resorts, with 22 lifts transporting guests to 300 hectares of skiable terrain and three terrain parks. About 35 percent caters to advanced skiers, and the resort also offers plenty of runs for beginners and intermediates. Cross country skiers can explore nine kilometers of trails. For non-skiers, the village is a fun place to hang out with its spas and shops, and kids will love the resort's toboggan parks. This is a great trip for families seeking a first-time snow experience, as well as enthusiastic skiers and boarders looking for a wintertime city escape.

Capture their vintage style at Sovereign Hill in Ballarat

At Sovereign Hill in Ballarat, you can experience the exciting 1850s gold rush days in a living museum. Sovereign Hill is a recreated gold-mining town, with Victorian-era houses and shops where you can watch goldsmiths and artisans at work, tour an underground gold mine, and even pan for the precious metal. The site comprises over 60 historically recreated buildings, with costumed staff and volunteers, who are able to answer questions and will pose for photos.

Try your luck to see penguin at Phillip Island

Phillip Island, about 140 kilometers from Melbourne's city center, is a top pick for wildlife lovers. Around sunset time, visitors gather along the shore to watch adorable penguins waddle up the beach at the Phillip Island Nature Park. However, you hear me right. Try your luck because some of the days there are little to no penguin around the island. Well, at least you made it there and catch their amazing scenery. See koalas in their natural habitat at the Koala Conservation Centre; hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies at Phillip Island Wildlife Park; or visit the Nobbies, a boardwalk that skirts the headland's sea bird gardens with breathtaking views of the coast.

Warm yourself this winter at Yarra Valley wine and puffing billy tours

Embark on a full-day adventure through the forests, mountains, and vineyards of Victoria. Bring your lunch and have picnic and birdwatching in the Dandenong Ranges. Next, you can stop through a verdant landscape aboard the historic Puffing Billy steam train. Noted that the train schedule is limited so please check their timetable if you plan to go there. After, discover the vineyards of the Yarra Valley as you sample premium regional wines at cellar-door tastings. However, it is better for you to visit on guided tour so it is easy and save time for your visit.
