Melbourne is Australia’s second largest city and the state capital of Victoria. A cosmopolitan and multicultural city that attracts people from all over the world. With a distinctly “English” feel to the climate, Melbourne has very much a colonial feel. Located in parklands along the banks of the stunning Yarra River, within a stone’s throw of Port Phillip, Melbourne has the sea to the south and the Mountains to the north and is perfectly positioned for enjoying life to the fullest. With its extensive public gardens and parks, spacious living environment, high standard of education and reliable public transport, Melbourne is often cited as one of the world’s best places to live.
A highly multicultural city, Melbourne is extremely welcoming of expats and a flourishing and diverse social scene, with a thriving café, bar and restaurant scene and inspiring neighbourhoods, such as the bohemian enclave of Fitzroy, the beachside suburb of St Kilda and the quirky charm of Collinwood offering access to some of the best art, cuisine, entertainment and music in the world.
Melbourne has a modern and integrated public transport system which is based around the world famous Flinders Street Station which is fed by transport links to the outlaying Melbourne suburbs and interstate rail links.
