I've traveled all over the world but lived in Melbourne all my life. It's incredibly laid back, friendly and a great mix of cultures. The food, beaches and surrounding National parks bring people from all over the world - many people end up never leaving. Highly recommend a visit!!
Things to go see and do in the city of Melbourne.
No beach is better than any Australian beach. Clean, white sand, hot sun, just be aware of shark warnings in the area and swim between the flags if you're at a surf beach with little surf experience! Most of the best beaches are a fair way out of Melbourne, but highly recommend the trip!
Some of the best road trips in the world are just outside of Melbourne! Hire a car and beach hop and hike to some of the most beautiful regions of Victoria.
Melbourne is re-noun for a great social scene. From the fancy Chapel St, to great backpacker bars in St Kilda, theres everything and anything.
Things to do
You can't go to Australia and not see our favourite unique animals. Lots of them you can see in the wild on hikes or even in any backyard outside the city - but if you wanna get up close and personal go to some of these parks!
Melbourne has some of the best variety of Restaurants in the world. And even better Coffee. A "Melbourne Brunch" is something that has to be experienced by anyone who comes here.
