Melbourne is the capital of Victoria and the state's largest city with a population approaching 4 million within its urban area. Melbourne sits on the Yarra River at the northern end of Port Phillip Bay, with its suburbs spreading out in all directions. It's central location ensures that many of the state's key attractions are within a few hours drive away, making it the ideal base for a holiday or sightseeing trip, particularly with its abundance of inner-city accommodation.
Melbourne is a multicultural city due to the influx of overseas immigrants and this is reflected in its dining precincts such as the Italian influenced Lygon Street in Carlton, the oriental cuisine of the city's Chinatown and Victoria Street in Richmond, and Coburg's Middle Eastern eateries.
Great shopping can be enjoyed along the streets in Melbourne's city centre, the Bourke Street Mall and Melbourne Central shopping centre. Large shopping strips in Melbourne's inner city suburbs include Chapel Street (South Yarra), Bridge Road (Richmond), Smith Street (Collingwood & Fitzroy) and Sydney Road (Brunswick).
Great beaches are right on Melbourne's doorstep. Within a few minutes from the city centre are the beautiful sandy bay beaches of Albert Park, St Kilda and Elwood. Boating and fishing can be enjoyed within Port Phillip Bay or along the city's Yarra River and Maribyrnong River.
An abundance of parks and gardens can be found close to the city centre and include the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Flagstaff Gardens (one of Melbourne's oldest parks), Carlton Gardens and the Fitzroy Gardens.
