Melbourne is the capital of the state of Victoria in Australia. The metropolis on the Yarra River is the second largest city in Australia with 4.2 million inhabitants. Many Australians and travellers always report about the rivalry between Sydney and Melbourne in Australia. I see that quite differently. Because both cities have their own charm and appeal.
The lively metropolis on the Yarra River has a lot to offer. Its boutiques and second-hand shops attract fashionistas from all over the world. But also art galleries, graffiti street art and historic buildings next to the latest architecture amaze many. The Yarra Valley with one of Australia’s most important wine-growing areas and the Great Ocean Road, which is practically around the corner, make the metropolis on the Yarra River one of the most popular metropolises in Australia.
The city impresses with its lifestyle. Here you will find modern skyscrapers next to old Victorian buildings. It is not for nothing that Melbourne is also called the cultural capital of Australia. Here you will find great graffiti in the streets, great museums, the best shopping in ingenious second-hand stores and shopping centres. But the quality of life doesn’t come short either, whether it’s spending a day on the beach in St Kilda, taking a trip to Wilsons Promontory National Park or along the Great Ocean Road itinerary. You will find what you are looking for in Melbourne.
