Life in Melbourne

Melbourne has consistently been voted one of the most liveable cities in the world, and for good reason! Melbourne is a very multicultural city, with people from all over the world calling it home. It has a vibrant and creative heart, with an abundance of cafes (yes, we really do have the best coffee in the world!), art galleries, festivals, live entertainment, sports events, places to eat and shop. You’ll never be bored with the weather; it can change on an hourly basis!
