Melbourne Travel Guide

Melbourne is the capital and largest city of the state of Victoria, and the second largest city in Australia. People are equally passionate about football and ballet, nuts for fashion, munchy for restaurants, ravenous for music and hot for theatre. It's a smorgasbord of a city that invites you to take a bite. In the last 10 years the city has undergone a renaissance. Restaurants and bars crowd the alleys and Victorian-era arcades off the main streets. Its riverbanks and docklands have been tranformed into spruced-up sites for swanky waterside socialising.
