imageMelbourne - capital city of Victoria, Australia. Population of approx. 4.0 million.

This modern city that straddles the Yarra River is Australia's second largest city. It's the gateway to Victoria, a major commercial centre and is situated at the very top of Port Phillip Bay.

Melbourne and the surrounding areas is rich in early Australian history. The city has a charming mix of historic Victorian architecture, contemporary high rise towers, major sporting venues and attractive parks and gardens. Melbourne's distinctive yellow and green electric trams are a popular form of public transport with both locals and visitors. A free City Circle tram service is available for visitors.

There is always something happening in Melbourne. Sports events, theatres, exhibitions, conventions, beaches, historic sites, clubs and casinos... Melbourne has it all. There is a wonderful variety of cuisines and Melbourne dining is an experience not to be missed. Greek, French, Italian, Anglo Saxon, Greek, Chinese and Vietnamese are just some of the cultures to be found in Melbourne's restaurants and shopping precincts.

Melbourne hotels and apartments offer everything from 5 star luxury to budget back-packer. The city has a great selection of smaller boutique hotels. Advance bookings for Melbourne hotels is always recommended as the city hosts lots of major events and festivals and accommodation is often booked out at those times.

Melburnians love their sport and the grand final of the AFL football typically attracts crowds up to 100,000. The city hosts the Melbourne Cup horse race, the spring racing carnival, the Australian Open Tennis, Formula One Grand Prix and the Australian 500cc Motor Cycle Grand Prix ... all of which attract huge crowds.
