MELBOURNE TRAVEL GUIDE - MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA

Melbourne AustraliaMelbourne Travel Guide - The State of Victoria, covering 227,600 square kilometres, hides at southeast tip of the Australia continent. Residing beside the Yarra River, Melbourne is the capital of Australia’s second smallest state. Melbourne does not have the blessed climate of Brisbane and neither the glamourous city life of Sydney and small in size to its neighbouring states. This does not mean it is inferior to them. There are also lots of cheap flights to Melbourne.

With its cosmopolitan make up, Melbourne is widely known as one of the world's the most liveable cities. With a quarter of its population born overseas and the continuous flow of immigration from Asia and Europe, it often claims itself as the third largest Greek city in the world and the largest Italian city outside Italy. Melbourne certainly lives up to this with its cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Melbourne Hotel and TravelBirthplace of Australian Rules Football and home to the nation's richest horse race, Tooheys Blue Melbourne Cup, Melbourne has established itself as an ideal venue for sporting events. Its track record includes events like Formula 1 Grand Prix, Australian Open tennis championship, Motorcycle Grand Prix etc. And also it must not be forgotten that it was the first Australia city to hold the gigantic event, Olympics Games, in 1956, decades before Sydney had the honor.

The spire at Victoria Arts Centre is Melbourne's most familiar landmark. In addition to that, it has the Twelve Apostles, located along the scenery Great Ocean Road, as its icon and the famous Philip Island's penguins to do the welcome parade to attract tourist all over the world to visit Melbourne.

Melbourne Australia has indeed shown that size does not matter and it need not play second fiddle when it comes to attracting visitors.
