Tip of the Week

Australia´s second city is a place of contradictions and hidden charms. Melbourne is the cultivated sister of brassy Sydney, and the cultural capital of the continent. Here, we have a hot pot of European and Asian influences stronger than in any other Australian city. Along the southern coastline Outside the city we can watch the sundown race of fairy penguins on Phillip Island, drive along the sculpted South Ocean coastline, sample some of the country´s tasty wine in and around charming Victorian towns, or bushwalk in a splendid variety of national parks. Visitors come for its shopping, restaurants, nightlife and sporting calendar, encouraging many Melburnians to believe that they live in one of the most civilised cities in the world. And yes, Melbourne did win the title as the most liveable world in the world.
