Melbourne is Australia's second largest city. As the cultural capital, Melbourne is home to Victorian-era architecture, extensive shopping facilities, museums, galleries, theatres, and large open gardens. Melbourne also plays host to many major sporting events.
Melbourne is the coastal capital of the southeastern Australian state of Victoria. The city of Melbourne rapidly expanded during the gold rush of the 1850s and many of the city's famous buildings, from Parliament House to the Melbourne Cricket Ground were constructed in this period. Today, Melbourne is an impressive modern city, although you can still enjoy a taste of the Victorian era with a stroll through the Lanes and Arcades. No visit to Melbourne is complete without traveling the Great Ocean Road, home to the region's most famous natural landmark, the dramatic Twelve Apostles.
Tasmania may be a state of Australia, but it has cultures and traditions of its own. A sparsely populated island, you get a tranquil, isolated feel during your stay allowing you to explore unspoilt terrain and find hidden treasures.
