About Melbourne

Melbourne is the capital city of Victoria and is both coolly casual and on fire with its trendy lifestyle. With friendly locals and beautiful weather, it is very suitable for long-term residence. Here, you can experience the modern rhythm of a great metropolis, dine in hidden lanes, visit luxury restaurants and galleries full of historic art. You can also visit part of the famous Great Ocean Road in the suburbs to experience some of Australia's many different strokes. The areas surrounding Melbourne are equally splendid. Phillip Island is an adorable penguin island. Sovereign Hill recreates the life and times of Australia's 19th-Century gold rush, St. Kilda Beach gives you a seaside sense of relaxation and Mt. Dandenong is the central part of Victoria's wine-producing and wineries region.
