About Melbourne

Melbourne has continually grown and evolved over the years, and has now placed itself firmly on the international stage as one of not just Australia’s top cities, but those in the world as a whole. Boasting a strong cultural and artistic bent and immense variety, Melbourne has received a heaping of praise from the international community in recent years as one of the world’s most liveable cities – and depending on who you ask, it may just be the country’s best.

Melbourne is a city that’s often described as having far more “depth” than its glittery northern brother, Sydney, and upon further inspection, it isn’t hard to see why – art, food, shopping, a great public transport system, a strong coffee culture and relatively clean air for a big city are all contributing factors. Melbourne has managed to grow substantially, yet still retains somewhat of a small-town, “indie” cultural vibe in many areas, and in some ways it is everything that Sydney is not. In simple musical terms, if Sydney is “mainstream pop”, then Melbourne is “critically-acclaimed alternative”.

In raw tourist terms, Melbourne also does not disappoint, as the city also plays host to a number of great attractions for the family such as multiple quality zoos and aquariums, while its own Yarra River serves as a gateway to the culinary delights offered by the widely-acclaimed Yarra Valley wine region nearby. For a more in-depth look at what Melbourne & surrounds has to offer, check out our most popular Melbourne travel articles below.
