Welcome to Melbourne, Australia

Australia’s Knowledge & Cultural Capital

With over 4 million residents, Melbourne is the second largest city in Australia and is renowned as Australia’s knowledge and cultural capital. Situated on the picturesque tree-lined banks of the Yarra River, in 2016 it was voted ‘The World’s Most Liveable City’ by the Economist for a sixth consecutive year.

Melbourne is a thriving and cosmopolitan city with a unique balance of graceful old buildings and stunning new architecture surrounded by parks and gardens. It’s also home to some of the world’s most outstanding communities of research and innovation and is the birthplace of Australian film, television, art, dance and music. The city’s major drawcard is its research institutes and academia that facilitate world-leading contributions to key economic sectors. Melbourne offers a sophisticated multi-cultural lifestyle, hidden laneways abundant with arts, museums, festivals, sporting events, food, wine, shopping and much more. Melbourne really is the place to be.

Melbourne also comes alive at night with the most live music venues in Australia, and a burgeoning number of chic and groovy inner-city bars and restaurants for every level and style of socialising imaginable. On top of all of this, Melbourne is also the gateway to the Great Ocean Road, the Twelve Apostles and Victoria’s most admired beaches.
