Well known as Australia’s sporting and cultural capital, Melbourne is a city with a touch of class. As Australia’s second largest city, it is a potpourri of cultures, cuisines and ideas and is a city known for the diversity of its style, fashion, food, architecture, theatres, galleries, and gardens. Melbourne is home to almost four million residents from over 140 nations and international students are sure to find friends from somewhere close to home.
This city is an eclectic blend of the old and the new, which is best reflected in its architecture — while the Flinders Street Train Station and ornate boulevards showcase the beauty of its elaborate Victorian architecture and reflect the city’s rich history, its modern face is evident in the contemporary style of starkly modern buildings like Federation Square.
Melbourne is infamous for its unpredictable weather that can catch you off guard, and tends to experience colder winters than other Australian capital cities. During the springtime, gardens and parks are frequented by tourists, and during the summer, the lovely golden beaches are always packed. Cozy and warm European-style cafés and bars are happening places during the seasons of autumn and winter.
The economy of Melbourne is particularly strong in education, finance, manufacturing, research, logistics and transportation and tourism sectors, and the city is home to the headquarters of many of Australia’s largest corporations.
Among the main attractions in Melbourne include Federation Square, Flinders Street Station, Queen Victoria Market, Crown Casino and Southbank. Those who love nature and animals would find the Great Ocean Road, Yarra Valley, Melbourne Zoo/Healesville Sanctuary and Melbourne Aquarium of particular interest. If you’re looking for some more places of tourist interest, do check out Phillip Island, Sovereign Hill, Dandenong Ranges/Puffing Billy, Docklands, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne Museum, Melbourne Observation Deck, Grampians, The Arts Centre, Mornington Peninsula, The Snowfield, and the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
