Greater Melbourne

 

Melbourne is Victoria’s capital and Australia’s fastest growing city.

The Victorian gold rush of 1851, in a few years, transformed Melbourne into one of the world’s wealthiest cities and it was seen as one of the great successes of the late 19th century. While maintaining its beautiful gardens and historic traditions, Melbourne now is well known for its great food and a diverse mix of multi-cultural influences.

The city remains one of the key cultural centres of Australia and welcomes millions of visitors each year, to the city itself and Victoria’s regional attractions.
