If you're keen to see more of Melbourne's art scene, go beyond the CBD to the Heide Museum of Modern Art.

For a closer look at Perth's past, go behind bars and explore the fascinating remains of Fremantle Prison. Feeling adventurous? Journey below the abandoned hallways and explore the intricate tunnel system carved by convicts in the 19th century. Or, if you'd prefer to stay above ground, venture between buildings on an outdoor walking tour.
