Melbourne is the culturally diverse, historical, and artistic capital city of Victoria, and there are so many reasons why it is such a popular travel destination for people from all over the world.

Melbourne is known for its abundance of entertainment, its unique nightlife, as well as it is gorgeous scenery and stunning architecture.

  • 1. There is always something to do

    If you are a socialite who enjoys having fun and trying new things, Melbourne is a great place to let your adventurous side come out. Most things are open until the late evening and no matter where you go there will be something for you to enjoy. Try your hand at minigolf at Holey Moley in the CBD, or rent a go boat along the Yarra River where you can drink wine and cook a BBQ while admiring the spectacular city views that surround you!

  • 2. The cultural diversity makes for some excellent dining options

    No matter where you decide to head in Melbourne, chances are that there will be an abundance of delicious restaurants with cuisines from all around the world. Check out the iconic China-town in the CBD, where you can take a bottle of wine and eat dumplings until your hearts content. If you wish to have a bowl of delicious Vietnamese Pho head over to the suburb of Footscray for some unbelievable authentic meals. For a classic Italian meal, check out the famous Lygon Street in Carlton, where the Italian culture is thriving, and the locals are happy to treat you to their cultural delights.

  • 3. The city views are beautiful

    On a gorgeous summer day in Melbourne when the clouds are no where to be seen, be sure to check out the spectacular views of the city from just about anywhere. If you are a lover of all things sunset, check out the gorgeous views at Brighton Beach, where you can watch the orange sun set over the water with the city views contrasting in the background, this is definitely a must do when you are in this part of the city.

  • 4. The public transport system is easy to use

    Melbourne is known for having an excellent public transport system which is easy to understand and relatively well priced. The tram system located in the CBD is free to use every day and, in any direction, as long as it is within the ‘free tram zone’. The train network reaches the outer suburbs and you can essentially get anywhere in Melbourne with its excellent public transport system.
