With a European feel, Melbourne is a city that loves its food, fashion and culture and is consistently voted as one of the world’s most liveable cities. Well designed and located along the banks of the Yarra River, Melbourne enjoys a temperate year round climate and a lower cost of living than Sydney. Victoria offers a wealth of attractions from the Yarra Valley wine region to country roads and coastlines of the Mornington Peninsula.
