Melbourne offers visitors a variety of bars, cafes, shops and quaint arcades alternated with green parks. A cosmopolitan city, Melbourne is home to thousands of restaurants and with several vineyards and wineries located nearby in the Yarra Valley, it is no wonder the city has become a favourite with foodies as well as the Cultural Capital of Australia.
The area is also home to some of Australias most stunning scenery. The unique climate makes Melbourne and the surrounding area one of the lushest areas of Victoria, no surprise then that it is referred to as the Garden City. Not to be missed is a trip to the Great Ocean Road, a visit the Grampians National Park with its striking scenery and indigenous rock art sites or a ride on the Puffing Billy Railway to explore the stunning Dandenong Mountain Ranges.
