Melbourne has a reputation for being a safe and family friendly city with excellent education and children’s services. On days off you’ll find more sensational beaches, quaint country towns, natural bushland and spectacular forests to explore – all within an hour’s drive from the city.
As Australia’s live music capital, you’ll find gigs in concert halls, jazz clubs and corner pubs everywhere. There’s more art to enjoy in our thriving independent theatre scene, big ticket shows and endless galleries. We’re also famous for our fashion industry with local designers plus all the high-end boutiques.
Melbourne’s restaurants are renowned for the best chefs, produce and service. Our cultural melting pot serves up everything from fast and fresh Vietnamese to long-standing Italian classics and international sensations like Nobu. Did we mention the coffee? We love it.
Culinary sensations, eclectic shopping, stunning natural attractions and cultural events can be enjoyed year round. And if there’s one thing Melburnians love more than culture (and possibly coffee) it’s sport. We host everything from major golf, tennis and racing events to soccer and surfing.
