TRAVEL IN MELBOURNE

Spend just a few days in Melbourne, Australia and you’ll understand why it’s the fastest growing city in the country. With its forward thinking ways, multiculturalism and progressive arts and food scene, this is a place many are drawn to. Dubbed the Europe of Australia, the Victorian capital boasts historic old-world charm teamed with all the draw-cards of modern lifestyle; gallery spaces, fine dining restaurants, and an enviable festival calendar. So while it may not have the giant monuments and iconic beaches of Sydney, its atmospheric culture lures travellers the world over. Home to the biggest open-air market in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the oldest running historic single-screen cinemas in the world, you’ll never be left wondering what to do in Melbourne for long. Even the routine task of trying to find a public toilet can leave one in a squeal of delight in this city, with the open-access bathrooms on the 35th floor of the Sofitel offering some of the best views going. Once you’ve visited many of the city’s best galleries - such as the National Gallery of Victoria, Australian Centre for the Moving Image and Chinese Museum - you may find yourself looking for a day trip to somewhere a little quieter. This is when the picturesque Yarra Valley wine region should be visited. Here, creamy goat’s milk cheeses and full-bodied local merlots will be the call of the day, devoured between visits to the region’s gin distillery and blueberry farms. Whether venturing through Melbourne’s city centre, regional farms areas, or many bayside suburbs, you’ll find this is a city with culture, heart and genuine hospitality.
