Welcome to Melbourne
Melbourne, the capital of Victoria and the second largest city in Australia, is renowned for its vibrant and diverse culture, excellent coffee, and unique dining and bar scene. The city is also famous for its street art, beaches, historical landmarks, and thriving markets. There's always something going on in Melbourne!
One of Melbourne's most iconic landmarks is Flinders Street Station, Australia's oldest railway station, built in 1854. The city also boasts the beautiful Botanic Gardens and the neighbouring Shrine of Remembrance, which offer a tranquil oasis just minutes from the bustling heart of the city. Art enthusiasts can explore the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia's oldest and most visited art museum, founded in 1861.
The Yarra River, which runs through Melbourne, is a vital component of the city's identity and offers picturesque walks, waterfront dining options, and cultural venues. Southbank is an upscale neighbourhood south of the river that features world-class cafes, bars, restaurants, and shops. Richmond, located east of the river, is a popular inner-city suburb known for its shopping, parks, and Asian grocery stores and eateries. Carlton, situated north of the city, boasts designer shops, fashionable cafes, restaurants, and cinemas. Fitzroy, located next to Carlton, is known for its vibrant bars, street art, and fun nightlife. In the south part of the city along the coast, you'll find the popular beach suburbs St Kilda, Elwood and Brighton.

Just a few kilometres east of the Melbourne CBD, not quite south and not quite north, you’ll find the multicultural and lively suburb of Richmond. Time Out released a list of the 49 coolest neighbourhoods in the world in 2021, and Richmond did not only end up in first place in Australia but also tenth in the whole world. In other words – this is definitely a place worth visiting.
