The capital of Victoria, Melbourne is Australia’s second largest city and its most diverse. Greek, Chinese, Italian, Vietnamese, and Lebanese immigrants have all settled here over the years giving the city a rich culture and the people a savoir vivre. There’s even a museum aptly named the Immigration Museum that’s dedicated to all the people who have migrated to Victoria since the 1800s. Although each Melbournian you meet will be unique in their own right they all have one thing in common: a love for sports. The Australian Tennis Open held in Melbourne Park, the Australian Grand Prix and the Melbourne Cup horse race are testaments of their devotion.

In recent years Melbourne’s popularity has grown to rival Sydney’s and travellers planning a visit should book their Melbourne flights early since there’s always an event taking place. But the lively buzz doesn’t stop at a single event; it’s there every day of the week coming out of its cool jazz bars, fashionable cafes and über-chic boutiques.

The city attracts more than just sports enthusiasts and culture seekers, nature lovers booking Melbourne flights won’t be disappointed. Outside the city are lush vineyards, outback wilderness, and captivating wildlife beckoning to be discovered.

Melbourne is lovely city to walk through. It’s fairly compact and the Yarra River, which runs through the middle of the city, offers cruises for those who want to spend their time floating through town.

The trams are a great way to experience one of Melbourne’s cultural icons, and buses stop at all the major sights. Except for peak hours, it’s easy to hail one of the many cabs.
