Melbourne

The cosmopolitan capital of Victoria, in southern Australia, is the country's second most populous city. The city centre is laid out in a large rectangle on the northern banks of the River Yarra, about 3.1 miles (5 kilometres) from the bay, with Greater Melbourne set around the Port Philip bay.

Melbourne was officially declared a city by Queen Victoria in 1847 and in 1851 became the capital city of the newly created colony of Victoria. During the Victorian Gold Rush in the 1850s Melbourne became one of Australia's largest and wealthiest cities attracting immigrants from all over the world.

Today, Melbourne is a cultural centre for the creative arts, it has a bustling atmosphere and is home is Australia's largest sports stadium. Numerous gardens and parks give a pleasant, open feel to the city, whose skyline mixes elegant spires with dazzling modern skyscrapers, which dwarf the elegant Victorian-era buildings that are dotted along leafy streets.
