The actual date of Queen Lizzie's birthday may have long gone (it's on April 21), but we'll take this belated celebration anyhow. There's plenty to do around and out of Melbourne this long weekend, so pack the car for a short getaway or hang out for a killer staycation where you can see world-class works of art, celebrate the work of Winona Ryder or drink wine at the zoo.

Flying solo? Here are a bunch of fun things to do alone in Melbourne. And if the weather turns, remember to consult our rainy day guide, too.
