Aptly known as ‘Marvellous Melbourne’ by those in the know, this dynamic, modern city was founded during the Australian Gold Rush in 1835 and has been going from strength to strength ever since. The impressive buildings you see here today are a product of the instant wealth acquired after the discovery of gold at that time. Melbourne has more fully preserved Victorian buildings than anywhere else in the country. Meanwhile, visitors looking for a cultural experience will find a multitude of performing arts shows and galleries at the Arts Centre Melbourne on the River Yarrow.

Flinders Street Railway Station is probably the most recognisable landmark in Melbourne and is a typical example of colonial-era architecture. The main entrance has a cluster of clocks hanging over it, and is a meeting point for locals.
Eureka Tower is the tallest residential building in the Southern Hemisphere. Climb to the top (if you have a head for heights) to get some spectacular panoramic views of Melbourne.
For all the hustle and bustle of everyday Melbourne life, head to the Queen Victoria Market. Huge and colourful, you can get just about anything you want here, including unusual souvenirs and antiques.
Flowing through the heart of the city is the Yarra – known as the "river that flows upside down" because of its brown colour, it’s actually a lot more scenic than it sounds, with some beautiful walks and picnic spots along its banks.
