Melbourne is the second most populous city in Australia, with a metropolitan area population of approximately 3.8 million (2007 estimate) located around Port Phillip Bay in Australia’s south-east, and is the capital of the state of Victoria.
Melbourne is a major centre of commerce, industry and cultural activity. The city is often referred to as Australia’s ‘sporting and cultural capital’ and it is home to many of the nation’s most significant cultural and sporting events and institutions.
Melbourne is notable for its mix of Victorian and contemporary architecture, its extensive tram network and Victorian parks and gardens, as well as its diverse, multicultural society. It was the host city of the 1956 Summer Olympics and the 2006 Commonwealth Games. (Courtesy Wikipedia)
We love Melbourne and her people and believe that this is a great place to live, work and play. The city itself is small enough to get a feel for in a day, but you could spend the rest of your life getting to know the many excellent cafes and restaurants in the Melbourne CBD and its surrounding suburbs.
The people are friendly and upbeat and have a love for great food, real coffee, travel, sport and the outdoors.
