With regular medal-winning appearances in the Economist’s Most Liveable Cities list (taking the top award three times since 2002), Melbourne has a right to be boastful. But despite it’s temperate climate, safe streets, cosmopolitan lifestyle and beautiful setting, locals remain low-key about their city.
Australia is famed for being free of social and political turmoil and filled with sun, surf and beaches, unique native flora and fauna, and warm, friendly people. And nowhere will you find these qualities more evident than in Melbourne. A modern, multicultural metropolis of four million people, it is a city that has made blending business with pleasure a sophisticated art form and a way of life.
