Melbourne is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city of over four million people.
Glorious parks and gardens, elegant streetscapes, and warm ethnic communities combine to make Melbourne one of Australia's most popular destinations for migrants and tourists.
Melbourne is clean, green and friendly. It came as no great surprise to residents when it was recently voted the most liveable city in the world.
The city is only a short distance from many beautiful beaches, perfect for swimming and water sports.
Mountain regions, where skiing is popular during winter, and the rainforest of the Dandenong Ranges make ideal day trips.
