The World's Most Liveable City
Independently polled as the ‘World’s Most Liveable City’, Melbourne is a melting pot of cultures, sports, cafes, parks and a smorgasbord of cuisines from all around the world. Only 200 years old, this young city offers a mix of the fast metropolitan lifestyle as well as a slower pace, should you choose it, to allow you time to appreciate the local beaches, cafes and smell the roses.
Melbourne is also the home of some of the most recognized and prestigious universities in the world. The University of Melbourne and The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) are amongst the names that employers around the world have come to know and respect.
From sporting events including the Australian Open tennis tournament and Formula 1 to year round festivals, there is something to keep everyone occupied.
The city is also home to many people from all around the world. Melbourne is proud of its large variety of cultures and food, thanks to the many migrants that have made this city their home over the last two centuries. Celebrations from Hanukah to Chinese New Year help international students settle in Melbourne and also introduce the locals to international cultures.
Getting around Melbourne is easy and convenient. An extensive network of trains, trams and buses makes every destination accessible. The public transportation system is highly organized and there are many maps and time tables for the convenience of commuters.
If you need a break from the city life, the rest of Victoria offers beautiful parks, historic destinations and the Great Ocean Road with its famous 12 Apostles.
One thing is guaranteed - there is something in Melbourne for everyone!
