Melbourne is the capital of Victoria and the second most populous city in Australia. It’s a wonderful city full of immigrants whose background usually spans multiple ethnicities, who are passionate about life, food, fashion, art and sport.  Explore the inner city hidden laneways buzzing with great food, boutique shopping and great arts.

From its city centre to its bustling neighbourhood hubs, the city has everything imaginable to one’s liking.
