Melbourne is the heart of Australia’s classic south. The city has compelling appeal in its gardens, its history, its character and its charm. Inhabited by cultures from across the globe, Melbourne has a fascination in the mix of its cosmopolitan peoples who give generously and share passionately in the richness of this most dynamic and vibrant city. Trams criss-crossing the city offer a leisurely way to appreciate the splendid streetscape. Melbournians’ flavour for the arts, and their fanaticism for sport, is celebrated year round.

With the harbour as the Sydney’s heart, the city proper is bounded by water to the north and west and fringed to the east by the extensive green parklands of the Botanical Gardens and the Domain.
