The lakes around the Grampians (good weekend trip).  (Watch out for
wildflowers, athough you may be a bit early).

Queenscliff and/or Portsea, and head out along the great ocean road...
(for some of australia's most photographed landscape).

Around the Dandenongs.   Healesville sanctuary if you're into zoo

I'd say avoid melbourne zoo if you are disturbed by animal
suffering---I know the staff there are trying hard, but the big game,
cats and primates are still in terribly cramped quarters.
Still, I reckon a trip might be worth it for the Meerkats.   


p.s. August... Spend some of that money you've been saving for a
        300/2.8 on a good raincoat... :-)
