Melbourne Overview

Melbourne is Australia's capital of cool. Undisputed as the hippest city, it boasts a host of quirky Melbourne-style cafes, laneways and bars that have since been emulated elsewhere across the world. The home of the flat white coffee, it's a creative booming metropolis that's home to huge brand shopping alongside trendy boutiques and a thriving street food scene. Independent bookshops, iconic music venues and cutting-edge galleries abound. Look closer and you'll find award-winning wineries alongside rainforest landscapes, snow capped mountain ranges and a rugged coastline. Popular holidays tend to involve hiring a car or campervan and using Melbourne's convenient coastal location to travel into the Outback or along the beautiful coastline.
