Melbourne, the cultural capital
of Australia, is known for the good things in life - fashion, food,
entertainment and sport. The capital of Victoria and Australia's
second-largest metropolis is a city of style, of Victorian architecture,
trams, theatres, art galleries, leafy gardens, inner-city excitement,
and the beach.
City as a
You'll barely meet a visitor who hasn't fallen in love with Melbourne.
Rattling trams, parklands singing with blackbirds, stately architecture
and palm trees - it's like northern Europe on the Mediterranean.
The influence of decades of immigration from all over the world
has made Melbourne a paradise for those who love food and wine.
Whole streets are dedicated to food, whether it be Indian, Spanish,
Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Greek, or a host of other styles. You
can't miss the world-class wines either.
Melbourne's love of style is no more evident than in its architecture.
From gorgeous Victorian public buildings to designer hotels and
dozens of examples of post-Modernist constructions scattered around
the city, Melbourne's architecture stands out. Interior design and
arts and crafts are also visual highlights of this happening city.
