There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Oak Alley Plantation, admire all the interesting features of Pete Maravich Assembly Center, and don't miss a visit to Houmas House Plantation and Gardens.

Melbourne, Australia to Baton Rouge is an approximately 29-hour flight. You'll gain 16 hours traveling from Melbourne to Baton Rouge due to the time zone difference.
