Melbourne is the second biggest town of Australia (Sydney is the first one). The city has nearly four millions of inhabitants. Local people name it „Australian Garden Town“ - owing to extended green areas.
In past, Melbourne was Australian capital. The city is famous, first of all, thanks to its Australian Open Tennis Tournament. Melbourne is also an important economical as well as industrial centre of the whole continent.

Fifth year in a row has Melbourne become the best place to live. Last time I guided you through its modern and busy downtown. However, not many people live in downtown- many travel there for culture and to work there. Let's take a look how other districts look like, districts where people actually live and dwell in.
Had I let go of my travelling job and choose a place to settle, Melbourne would be my choice. Why? The city is built and developed for the people. Not for buildings, industry, developers, and not even for tourists. It is built for the people who live there. Thus it is also one of the best cities to live in in the world. Don't worry. You can still enjoy it and leave with unforgettable memories even as mere visitors.
Great Ocean Road. One of the most popular trips from Melbourne to the east. 275 kilometers from the city, there is one of the most iconic places in all Australia. 12 Apostles standstone rocky towers.
