Melbourne: tourist information

Melbourne is a city famous for its sense of style. Glamorous events are a trademark of the city, as are its cafes, wineries and shops. Melbourne boasts a lifestyle experience. There are beautiful buildings, fantastic shopping precincts and countless shows, exhibitions and galleries to entertain. It is also very easy to get around with the constant stream of trams.

Melbourne is a haven for special events. It is home to the country's richest horse race, the world-famous Tooheys Blue Melbourne Cup, the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix, the Australian Open Tennis Championship, and the birthplace of Australian Rules Football. 2003 sees the Rugby World Cup Tour throughout Australia with games to be held in Melbourne. The Melbourne Cricket Ground is the best in the world.

For sport of a different kind, Crown Casino is the biggest and best in Australia. Pubs in and near the city feature live entertainment and a chance to meet the locals. There are plenty of places to hang out late. Sport or entertainment, Melbourne has much more to offer than you will have time to enjoy.

The city's multi-cultural mix of people from more than 100 countries has created a myriad of cafes and restaurants. Italian, Greek, Asian, Middle Eastern, African and leading Australian chefs provide taste sensations to please every palate and every pocket. Choose anything from fast food to the finest five-course dinner with a view and silver service. Victoria also produces superb wines and great beers.

Just outside the city limits lies a world of natural beauty. The Twelve Apostles are accessible for a day trip although it is recommended you take your time travelling down the Great Ocean Road. Wilson's Promontory, a playground of wild animals, beaches, and forests, is only 3 hours drive away. Just around the corner on Phillip Island is the famous penguin parade. Each night, hundreds of penguins shuffle ashore with plenty of room for spectators to enjoy.

Only 50 kilometres or 1 hour drive from Melbourne is the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges, a region of hills, forests, and most importantly, wine. There are over 200 vineyards in Victoria with each producing magnificent wines.

Further north is the high country where you can ski - and walk, kayak, canoe, abseil, fly and cycle. It is in these hills that Banjo Paterson wrote the poem, The Man from Snowy River.
