Melbourne

For the last six years Melbourne has been voted the most livable city in the world, and it’s not hard to see why! Its unique, diverse culture makes it unlike any other city around the globe.

Tourists visiting Australia’s second largest city should look forward to an eclectic mixture of activities – from superb sports entertainment and live music, world class dining and rooftop bars, to street markets and art which showcase the character of the city.

The street art in Melbourne alone is enough to make the trip worthwhile and the multi-coloured pieces scattered across city centre laneways are a must-see exhibition of Melbourne’s creativity. The appreciation locals and tourists from around the world share for the city’s art is evident from their gathering each October for the annual Melbourne Festival.

As well as serving as a canvas for street artists, Melbourne’s laneways have taken on a new life with hidden cafes, quirky bars and art galleries taking up residence and becoming an essential part of the city’s culture.

Travellers with a keen eye for architecture will admire how Melbourne has modernised the landscape with skyscrapers and sports facilities whilst preserving its architectural heritage.

  1. Have an authentic cuppa. Coffee in Melbourne is known as the best in Australia, with locals favouring independent coffee shops and Melbourne baristas having mastered the art of coffee making.
  2. Diversify your diet. Your trip to Melbourne is time for you to experiment with a multitude of cuisine! The city offers a sumptuous variety of dining experiences – from food trucks and late night souvlaki to fine Italian dining and fusion restaurants.
  3. Bathe in beauty. The beaches packed across the Mornington Peninsula make for a fantastic summer playground right on the city’s doorstep and come in two varieties – the wild ‘back beaches’ loved by surfers and the family-friendly ‘bay beaches’, home to the historic Brighton bathing boxes.
  4. Embrace the drama. The breathtaking limestone cliffs knows as the 12 Apostles and the scenic Great Ocean Road leading to them are a dream come true for nature lovers. Travel through alternating landscapes and take in the stunning views of ocean, rainforest and waterfalls.
  5. Parade with the penguins. Phillip Island National Park is famous for its penguin colony (the largest in Australia) and if you book in advance you can have the unique opportunity to experience their evening return from the sea. Amongst the wonders of Phillip Island are also the Koala Conservation Centre where you can see the fluffy marsupials up close, and the Seal Rocks housing fur seals.
