Continue the activity theme in the Snowy Mountains by hiking up the 2,228m high Mount Kosciuszko for alpine views, exploring Australia’s history in the gold mining towns of Beechworth and Ballarat. The former is famous for being the site of the legendary Ned Kelly’s trial and subsequent imprisonment. End your trip in hip Melbourne, exploring its beaches, cafes and restaurants.
