Melbourne – this much-loved Aussie city has long taken residency atop the ‘world’s most livable cities’ list. Follow our journey through the maze of laneways and see why for yourself.

The scent of roasting coffee beans wafts through the air in Melbourne. This city is serious about its coffee, and if you’re game, you can base an entire Melbourne visit around sampling the offerings from local cafés.

Want more than a caffeine buzz from your Melbourne vacation? You’re in luck. Melbourne sits on the banks of the Yarra River, and you’ve got your pick of cathedrals, parks, and giant buildings to explore, as well as an extensive streetcar network to help you get from one place to the next.

Melbourne’s locals love art, and the inner-city laneways are jammed with street artists painting over the external walls of buildings. Don’t worry; these artists have a permit and are sanctioned by the city. A visit to Luna Park™ is also a must, when staying in Melbourne. Established in 1912, the theme park features one of the world’s oldest roller coasters and a number of additional vintage rides.
