There is a lot to love about Melbourne - the lifestyle, the climate and its bright future are all part of what inspires so many people to call it home.
The City of Melbourne is the home, workplace and leisure space of a vibrant multi-cultural community, and Victoria's economic hub.
Melbourne grew up around the natural bay of Port Phillip, and expands out towards the Dandenong and Macedon mountain ranges.
Education facilities, healthcare, entertainment, shopping and sport are all top notch here, attracting thousands of tourists every year.
The excellent transport system includes Australia's second busiest airport, and the country's busiest seaport.
