Melbourne is the capital and most populous city in the Australian state of Victoria, it was transformed into one of the world's largest and wealthiest cities, during Victorian Gold Rush in 1850. Melbourne rates highly in education, entertainment, healthcare, research and development, tourism and sport, making it the world's most livable city—for the fifth year in a row in 2015, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit. It is a leading financial center in the Asia-Pacific region, and ranks among the top 30 cities in the world in the Global Financial Centers Index. It is home to many of Australia's largest and oldest cultural institutions such as the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne Cricket Ground, the National Gallery of Victoria, the State Library of Victoria and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building. Melbourne is also home to Australia's most extensive freeway network and has the world's largest urban tram network.
Vibrant, elegant, and multicultural, Australia's second largest metropolis frequently tops the list of the world's most liveable cities. With its tangle of hidden laneways, tree-lined promenades, and grand Victorian buildings funded by the 1850s Gold Rush, the city has a distinctly European feel. Foodies will also find plenty to love. Famous Aussie chefs flaunt their talents here, and you can feast on everything, from Greek, Italian, and Indian cuisine to Spanish and Vietnamese fare.
But perhaps Melbourne's biggest claim to fame is sports. The famous Melbourne Cup horse race, held on the first Tuesday in November, brings the entire nation to a standstill, and Australian Rules football elicits an almost religious reverence here. Catch a game at the Melbourne Cricket Ground; explore the city's diverse galleries, chic cafes, and shops; stroll through beautiful botanic gardens; cruise along the Yarra River; or hop aboard a heritage tram to discover Melbourne's magic.
