Melbourne has been voted the city with the highest quality of life in the world several times. Melbourne is the second largest city in Australia after Sydney and is very popular among backpackers. Melbourne is Australia’s cultural capital- you can find a numerous hip cafe, restaurants, bars and a lively music scene. From the Australian Open, to the Grand Prix, concerts, theatre performances, White Night, Chinese New Year and Fringe Festival, one thing is certain: Melbourne will not be boring.

Melbourne is not only the capital but also the largest city in the state of Victoria. But not only the city itself offers a lot of activities; the surrounding area also has a lot to offer. As soon as you leave the city centre, you can discover a wide variety of landscapes – from green forests to vineyards to the spectacular coastlines and cliffs of the Great Ocean Road. We recommend a visit to Wilson’s Prom National Park, Philip Island to see the world’s smallest penguins, Mornington Peninsula or Yarra Valley for all wine lovers, Dandenong Ranges for a ride on the Puffing Billy train and of course a drive along the world-famous Great Ocean Road cannot be missed!
