I've lived in Melbourne Australia since April 1992 and fell in love with the City instantly. Melbourne is the Capital city in the State of Victoria, Australia. Often called the "Garden State"
due to the meticulously maintained Gardens everywhere with lush green grass, & plenty of shrubs & native trees all around.
The Floral Clock in the Queen Victoria Gardens is a clinker! The
Weather here can be a bit tricky, so be prepared for a shower or two, sunshine & windy all in the same day. Not to worry, there are so many things to do in this City, so let this be your Guide to Melbourne.
As for me, I like the great outdoors and so I like to see places of natural scenic beauty. Some of my favorite places are the
Beaches, Great Ocean Road (Scenic drive), Sovereign Hill (Previously a Gold Mining Town), Yarra Valley region
(Forests, Country & Wine growing area) and the Dandenong Ranges (Gardens, Trekking, Walks & BBQ facilities etc.)
Over here you will find that the Accommodation can range from Hotels, Motels, Backpacker, Apartments, and Bed and Breakfast places which cater to everyone's needs & budget. The City Map is a very handy tool as it helps
you move around the CBD in an organized way. Make sure to pick a map of your destination from the Federation Square Visitors information centre which is opposite to the Flinders Street Station in the City.
If you do get a chance, please write about your experience and your favorite thing about this great City in the "Contact Me" section and I will publish it and dedicate a page for your contribution so that everyone can see what you think about Melbourne. It could even be a question you might want to ask. I would love to read about your story or to answer your question.
Finally, I hope your travel to our Magnificent City is a terrific one and also hope that you find this website useful. If there are any suggestions for improvement, they are always welcome.
