Voted many times over as one of the world's most liveable cities, Melbourne (the capital of the State of Victoria) is celebrated for its friendly locals, efficient services, fine wine and dining, and world-class facilities. Melbourne's climate is temperate and variable with no great extremes and one of the lowest rainfall levels in Australia. But it is within Melbourne's hidden back streets that the city really comes to life. Here you will experience the city's contagious passion for coffee at chic cafés, and gain a unique insight into local culture by visiting independent art galleries. Cosmopolitan Melbourne is a city on show and has everything you need to make your visit a fantastic experience from both a business and leisure perspective.
