Where is Melbourne? It is Victoria's Capital City in Australia.
I've lived in
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 Melbourne Australia everywhere with lush green grass, & plenty of shrubs & native trees all around.
The Floral Clock in the Queen Victoria Gardens is a clinker! The
Gardens 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. Weather
Over the years while living in here & talking to Visitors and Melbournians, I've gathered that most of them like the
while others admire Federation Square , The Arts Centre , and the Crown Casino . Kids usually love the National Gallery of Victoria , Museum , & the Aquarium . However my son & his friends really can't get enough
of the Melbourne Zoo . At this place there are numerous Science based Scienceworks Museum , a Planetarium next
door and the Lightning room adjacent to the main building which is really a hair raising experience! You can find all these Kids activities plus many more through the pages of this website. Attractions
is a War Memorial for the many gallant Australians who fought & died for our
country and is a stupendous place to see. Shrine of Remembrance is a great place for This City . There are major Shopping such as the
Chadstone Shopping Center, Shopping Centers like Chapel Street in South Yarra, the Royal Arcade & the Block Arcade not to forget the many Shopping Malls & Arcades as well.
While some people love to relax at the Factory Outlets with their natural settings, others find the laid back atmosphere of the Beaches enjoyable and an exhilarating experience. Queen Victoria Market
As for me, I like the great outdoors and so I like to see places of natural scenic beauty. Some of my favourite places are the
, Beaches (Scenic drive), Great Ocean Road (Previously a Gold Mining Town), Sovereign Hill region
(Forests, Country & Wine growing area) and the Yarra Valley (Gardens, Trekking, Walks & BBQ facilities etc.) Dandenong Ranges
Over here you will find that the

you move around the City Map in an organised way. Make sure to pick a map of your destination from the CBD Visitors information centre which is opposite to the Flinders Street Station in the City. Federation Square
