Repeatedly voted the world's most liveable city, Melbourne prides itself on its style and multifaceted urban culture. With a well-ordered downtown on the Yarra River, surrounded by parks and gardens, the capital of Victoria offers world-class art and live entertainment, a serious devotion to good coffee, gorgeous architecture, rich Aboriginal history, and top-notch dining. It's bound to be an urban highlight of any Australia vacation.

Federation Square is the perfect starting point, with its exhibitions, museums, restaurants, bars and shopping. To see Melbourne from a different perspective, visit the Eureka Skydeck for stunning views of the city’s heritage buildings, especially lit up after dark. A new development is the restored Docklands where one can enjoy award-winning restaurants alongside stylish bars and cafes. The city is also known for hosting world-famous events such as the Australian Grand Prix, the Australian Open Tennis and the Melbourne Cup.

For something different, head to seaside St. Kilda or funky Fitzroy, colourful neighbourhoods each with a character all its own. St. Kilda has its own beachfront and is home to Luna Park, the renowned amusement park, while Fitzroy is the hub of Melbourne's alternative and Bohemian nightlife.

Outside of Melbourne, don't miss a day trip to Phillip Island to see the world-famous little penguin parade. You can also visit the Yarra Valley for its wineries, Ballarat, for its rich gold rush history, and the beautiful surf beaches and spectacular views of the Great Ocean Road, best known for its unique rock formation, the Twelve Apostles.
