Trips to Melbourne

Melbourne travel

Travel to the land down under and visit Melbourne, Australia's second largest city, with its Aboriginal heritage mixed with modern culture. Often earning the title of "world's most liveable city", it is bound to the banks of the Yarra River. Settlement began in 1835 and today Melbourne's history is visible in the imposing Victorian-era architecture that has stood the test of time. Renowned for its thriving art scene and cosmopolitan "European" atmosphere, it is also the sporting capital of Australia with a sport-mad population and most of the country's sporting events taking place in its vast arenas. It is a compelling place to visit and makes the popularity of Melbourne flights easy to understand.
