Melbourne is Australia’s cultural capital, with Victorian-era architecture, extensive shopping, museums, galleries, theatres, and large parks and gardens. Its 4-million residents are both multicultural and sports-mad.
Melbourne is often called the cultural capital of Australia, with its many art galleries, film festivals, orchestras, choral and opera productions, vibrant live music scene, and a strong food, wine and coffee culture. People in Melbourne tend to dress up more than in Sydney, partly due to the colder climate. Many bars and clubs have strict dress regulations, such as requiring collars and dress shoes for men.
Particular events to note include the Melbourne International Film Festival in August, the International Art Festival in October, and the Melbourne Comedy Festival in April. There are also many concerts and exhibitions throughout the year. In addition to the Melbourne Museum, there are special museums dedicated to subjects such as science, immigration, Chinese history, Jewish history, sport, racing, film and moving image, railways, police, fire brigades and banking.
What to see
Docklands— An entire new precinct filled with shops, bars, restaurants and things to do for all the family as well as a large sports stadium with a waterside setting. Boat trips touring Melbourne's rivers and Port Philip Bay leave from here.
Eureka Tower— Tallest residential building in the southern hemisphere, panoramic views of the whole of Melbourne.
The Yarra— famous as the "river that flows upside down" (because of it's brown colouration) the Yarra winds its way through the heart of Melbourne with beautiful walks, enjoyable boat trips, and frequent opportunities to picnic or use the public free BBQs along the riverside by the botanical gardens for the full Aussie eating experience.
