Message from Tourism Australia
With Melbourne's combination of world-class dining, art galleries, homegrown fashion and a packed sports calendar, it's no surprise Victoria's capital is regarded the world’s most livable city. The centre of Melbourne is threaded with cobbled laneways, which have become a mecca for coffee shops, cafés and unique shopping boutiques. Follow this guide to discover its hidden charms. International flights arrive direct to Melbourne Airport from many global hubs. From the airport it’s an easy 30 minute taxi or shuttle bus ride to the central business district.
