Melbourne is the ideal destination for foodies, sports fans, and nature lovers. This metropolitan city is the perfect place to start your journey to neighbouring coastal towns, hot springs, wineries and beaches. Prior to Vienna winning the title for the world’s most liveable city (in 2018), Melbourne had been the consecutive titleholder for 7 years. Melburnians take pride in their coffee, their world-famous train station located in the heart of the city (Flinders Street Station), and their ever-changing street art in cosy laneways. Melbourne has several regions and is home to four main rivers: the Yarra, Bunyip, Maribyrnong and Werribee.
Whether you’re a foodie, wine enthusiast, nature-lover or adventure seeker, there’s something for everyone in Melbourne. Visit popular attractions like Queen Victoria Market, Immigration Museum and the hard-to-miss Federation Square. Explore Melbourne by choosing to go on day-trips or walking and biking tours.
