Melbourne is the second biggest city in Australia situated on the bay of Port Phillip in the south-eastern part of mainland Australia. The city boasts a warm welcome combined with a relaxing atmosphere which is quite typical in Australia. Whilst in Melbourne you can visit the surrounding coves and beaches for surfing and to soak in the sun, visit the city and experience Australian shopping, enjoy a few hours walking through the Royal Botanic Gardens, admire the street art which Melbourne is famous for and visit Melbourne Museum or even the National Gallery of Victoria. Whatever you choose to do, Melbourne has something for everyone.
Shopping in Melbourne offers style and elegance. For unique vintage clothing then head to ‘Empire Vintage', ‘Georges' or the ‘Cats Meow'. ‘Basement Discs' offers not only a full range of music, but they even have liver performances in the store, ‘Wolford' is home to the finest hand-made knitwear and the ‘Paperback Bookshop' houses an extensive selection of new and old books.
