Melbourne Information

Travel to Melbourne, a sophisticated and laidback Aussie city, for a vibrant cultural buzz, and lively nightlife. Sydney has the iconic buildings and beautiful harbor setting, but Melbourne is the city in Australia with a vibrant cultural scene, excellent restaurants, and laidback beaches. Popular sights in Australia’s second-largest city include the Yara River, the Cathedral, Chinatown, and Little Greece. There are also some great museums in the city, such as the Gold Treasury Museum, Old Melbourne Gaol, and the Immigration Museum.

There are ample opportunities for shopping, eating, and drinking within the city as well. Australia's second-largest city, Melbourne, capital of Victoria, is the most European in style with trams rattling through streets past Victorian buildings, parks and outdoor cafes.

The city centre is laid out in a simple grid pattern, the long, wide north-south streets gently sloping down to the Yarra River, crossed by a mix of narrow lanes, and the main shopping streets such as Bourke and Collins Streets. There are numerous parks, such as the Royal Botanical Gardens, Fitzroy Gardens and Carlton Gardens. You can take one of Melbourne's signature attractions, a tram.

The burgundy-coloured City Circle tram is free, and is a good way to get your bearings as well as explore the inner city. Melbourne's population of over three million is made up of a variety of cultures, including Chinese, Italian, Vietnamese, Lebanese and Greek, who have all added their touch to this thriving city.

A fierce rivalry exists between the cities of Melbourne and Sydney, but local residents bask in the satisfying knowledge that Melbourne beats Sydney hands-down on the cultural front, noted for its wide variety of high standard performing arts, as well as its sport. The city plays host to world-renowned sporting events like the Melbourne Cup, Australian Open Tennis and Qantas Australia Grand Prix.

Around the city, within an hour's drive, there are numerous places worth visiting, including the Macedon Ranges, which is Australia's spa capital with its world-renowned mineral springs, as well as the spectacular Great Ocean Road along the coast, which passes stunning rock formations such as the Twelve Apostles.
