Melbourne is a city like no other. Situated on the shores of Port Phillip Bay, at the mouth of the Yarra River, the city of Melbourne, known as the "Garden City," has some of the most beautiful parks in the world. The capital of the state of Victoria and a thriving city of multicultural people, Melbourne is also Australia's pre-eminent center for arts, education, culture, entertainment, culinary excellence, sporting spectaculars, shopping and business.
