The World’s Most Livable City

Melbourne has the honor of being “the world’s most livable city” not to mention “Australia’s cultural capital”, a UNESCO City of Literature, the hub of the country’s film and television industry, and the unquestioned sporting capital of Australia. But don’t mistake Melbourne for a relentless overachiever, it’s got a laid-back and easy vibe that will leave you wanting more.

The best way to experience what makes Melbourne so special is to hit the streets and explore. Your first stop should be to fuel up with a cup of jo. Coffee culture is taken very seriously here, and there are all kinds of quaint cafés to be found on the charming city streets. Then, wander to take in the restored 19th-century architecture—including the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition building—much of which was built following the Victorian gold rush.

Visit the seaside suburb of St. Kilda for such renowned attractions as Luna Park, Fitzroy Street, and St. Kilda Beach, the city’s most famous beach. Stroll through Melbourne’s interconnected arcades and laneways, filled with vibrant street art, boutiques, restaurants and cafés, or enjoy a leisurely walk through the heart of the city center at the Royal Botanic Gardens.
