About Melbourne

Melbourne is set around the shores of Port Phillip. The city itself, laid out in a large rectangle and boasting a cosmopolitan pulse, sits on the banks of the Yarra River. Melbourne is a planned city: a tidy, balanced grid of neatly angled streets. But beneath this sense of 'everything in its place' lies a restless creative energy, constantly pushing back at the city's seeming conservatism. The CBD is made up of precincts - distinct enclaves each with its own flavour and charm. Some are just a lane or two, while others cover the banks of the Yarra or a busy CBD street. Extending around the bay are the inner suburbs, each with its own distinct character and personality. A short tram ride from the city centre, Melbourne's suburban neighbourhoods are a must-see for anyone wanting to know what life here is all about.
