MELBOURNE | VICTORIA
Melbourne is a blend of bustling laneways, world-class restaurants and captivating museums. The locals love their coffee, and serve it up in abundance at cosy cafes.
There's always a sense of excitement here – whether its in the city's fascinating flavours or fierce sporting rivalries. Attend a sports event, drink a cocktail on a rooftop and uncover the stories hidden within Melbourne's art-filled alleyways.
Getting to Melbourne is easy with international and domestic flights arriving direct to Melbourne Airport from many major hubs. From the airport it’s a quick 30-minute taxi or shuttle bus ride to the city centre.
For Melburnians, coffee is more than just an essential part of their morning routine. It's become so deeply embedded in the culture that it has truly evolved into an art form. Home to thousands of cafés and some of the world's best baristas, you'll never be far away from a sophisticated cup of single origin coffee.
Melbourne is renowned for its markets, which sell everything from local produce to arts and crafts and vintage fashion. Get amongst the hustle and bustle of the Queen Victoria Markets, the largest open-air market in the Southern Hemisphere.
You can take a bus from there to the South Melbourne Market, and enjoy dim sim or street-style Mexican food under its historic awnings. On weekends, pick up handmade pieces from emerging Australian designers at the Rose St. Artists’ Market in Fitzroy, just a quick tram ride from the city centre.
