Discover Melbourne, Australia’s hub of sport, style and culture. Soak up the city, from multicultural St Kilda Beach to the spectacular Great Ocean Road.
Character-filled neighbourhoods, such as Fitzroy, St Kilda and Carlton, hum with life and the city produces some of the best art, music, cuisine, fashion, performance, design and ideas in the world. Melburnians are also devoted to their sport and they go ballistic around the Australian Football League (AFL; â€˜footyâ€™ to the locals) finals and during Spring Racing Carnival. They love to shop, eat and attend the myriad festivals that the city offers. Youâ€™ll even find them defending the cityâ€™s temperamental weather, and if youâ€™ve ever experienced Melbourneâ€™s inclination to plummet from searing heat to drizzling rain in the space of an hour, youâ€™ll understand that this must be the true definition of unconditional love.
