Images Of Melbourne

Rivalling Sydney as Australia's number one city, Melbourne is famously the country's most European city. Capital of Victoria, here you will find some of Australia's coolest bars, restaurants and cafés. While it doesn't have the harbour or beaches of its eastern counterpart, it does have some of the country's trendiest neighbourhoods. It is also the home of Aussie Rules Football which is a massive part of Victorian life. This is a city that's just as pleasant to visit for three days as it is to live in for three months.

    Absolutely love Melbourne. Very colorful city with lots to do. The street art and architecture is fantastic to look at. Would love to visit again soon.

    Insider Tip:Look into doing the free walking tour of Melbourne, the tour is about 2 and a half to 3 hours and includes loads of good information you wouldn't learn about Melbourne otherwise. Also go to Phillip Island. Those little penguins are the cutest thing you'll ever see.

    We stayed in Melbourne for four days. The art gallery is definitely worth a visit also a walk around the streets to see the graffiti-ed walls! Melbourne zoo was definitely our favorite place we visited and its worth getting a zoo membership if your a lover of seeing wildlife!

    Insider Tip:Only get a zoo membership if you're going to go to more than three zoos around Australia
