About Greater Melbourne

Lose yourself in Melbourne, a city loaded with hidden treasures. Behind non-descript doors in Melbourne’s hidden alleyways and laneways are creative hot spots and highly talented individuals whose crafts span all genres of art, food, fashion and design. The city promises endless shopping and cultural opportunities, excellent art galleries and blockbuster musicals. Culinary treats can be found in countless restaurants, cafes and bars. This lively and cosmopolitan city combines a fanatical love for the creative arts and good living with a state-wide sports addiction to make a city like no other. Food, art, music, wine and football – is there anything else?
Come prepared with a sense of adventure – you’ll need it to explore the city’s fascinating labyrinth.
Don’t miss out on the entertainment along the Yarra River where Crown Casino and Southbank showcase some of Melbourne’s best dining venues. About five kilometres from the city lies Port Phillip Bay, home to  eclectic St Kilda, which seduces you with sunset views, fun on the beach and a colourful strip of shops and bars.
Extending around the bay are a number of inner suburbs, each with its own distinct character and personality. A short tram ride from the city centre, Melbourne’s suburban neighbourhoods are a must see for anyone wanting to experience what life here is really all about.
