Melbourne is a booming city on the southeastern coast of Australia. It’s been named the world’s most livable city for six years in a row, and it’s easy to see why. The weather is gorgeous, the people are happy, and the local culture is evident everywhere you go. In fact, some of the best things to do in Australia’s “cultural capital” are attending a concert, theatrical performance, art exhibit, or comedy show in one of dozens of great venues across the city.

To escape the urban center, make your way down to Melbourne’s beaches, where visitors and locals alike can always be found soaking up some sun. Or take a day trip out to Port Campbell National Park and the famous 12 Apostles to see unforgettable limestone cliffs and rock formations along the coast. The people here are friendly and welcoming, and will likely take the time to help you make the most of your visit to their incredible city.
