The capital city of the Australian state of Victoria, Melbourne is a hub for virtually everything Down Under-culture, art, restaurants, nightlife, shopping, music, you name it. Nestled in Port Phillip Bay, the world-class waterfront city feels European, thanks to its colonial, Victorian-era architecture and wide, tree-lined boulevards. Beneath Melbourne's sophisticated veneer, you'll find a mix of tucked-out-of-the-way alley cafes, graffiti street art (which the city is famous for), and buzzed-about restaurants offering a wide variety of cuisines. Hop on one of the city's old-school trams to take a ride around the Melbourne and soak it all in.

Fresh Things To Do

    Catch a footy or cricket match at Melbourne's top spot for sports. While you're there, head over to the National Sports Museum for a tour and history of Aussie sports.

  • Port Campbell National Park

    One of Australia's natural wonders is just off the coast of Melbourne. Get to the Twelve Apostles rock formation in Port Campbell National Park by hopping on a Great Ocean Road bus tour, or schedule a private helicopter ride to arrive in style.

  • Dinner By Heston

    Dine at one of Melbourne's finest restaurants. Dinner By Heston has won a number of awards and boasts the most delicious five-course lunch menu in Victoria.

  • Forecasting Your Melbourne Vacation

    Melbourne's weather is perfectly mild all year long with average highs hitting 80 degrees and average lows dipping to only 45 degrees. The Aussie summer is during the American winter, so expect higher temperatures from November to March. You can expect a few rainy days each month, but Melbourne weather can be unpredictable-so plan to pack layers.
