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.

    Great city

    Melbourne is very neat, public transit is a bit on the expensive side but everything in Australia is. Excellent selection of ethnic food and the city is pretty easy to walk around.

    Insider Tip:Don't think I stayed long enough to discover any.

    My favourite city in Australia!

    Although could be a bit stuck up and snotty, I really enjoyed my stays in Melbourne. There's a lot to discover as a tourist, and even more that locals are hiding for themselves. There's an underground culture that's brewing in plain sight that locals are trying to keep sacred with unspoken SOPs and whatnot. Regardless, the mainstream culture is still one to behold by tourists and visitors alike. Easy to get around and good food anywhere. Would love to live here someday.

    Insider Tip:If you can- walk.
