It’s common knowledge that Melbourne is a fantastic place to live. The Victorian capital has been named the world’s most liveable city for the past five years in a row, renowned for its vibrant culture spanning sport, food, art, coffee and architecture.
Melbourne’s hospitality scene is as diverse as it is celebrated, home to one of the world’s best coffee scenes, carefully hidden laneway bars, outstanding restaurants and various food festivals.
The international tennis calendar begins with the first major of the year, the Australian Open at Melbourne Park. The two-week event will feature the likes of Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams from January 16.
Paint the town
Melbourne’s street art is world renowned and what better way to experience it than to take a walk down Hosier Lane. Alternatively, you take the more conventional route and visit the National Gallery of Victoria to check out the latest exhibitions.
Sound of music
Melbourne Zoo Twilights returns for 2017, offering a fun, cost-free way to spend the warm evenings enjoying Australian music. Running from January 27 to March 11, there will be performances from artists such as The Living End, Ball Park Music, Peter Garrett, The Rubens, Killing Heidi and The Jungle Giants.
