Melbourne is one of the most livable cities in the world; this sparkling city has an abundance of greenery and parks. Over the past decade or so, Melbourne has grown in statue and sophistication, now offering the tourist just about every conceivable attraction, with beaches, walks, surfing and gardens that would rival any in the world. Melbourne has great shopping and if this is your go, don't miss the marvelous Chadstone Shopping Centre. The spectacular Botanical Gardens, on the outskirts of the city, is a wonderful place to stroll around. For the kids (and the kids at heart), just out from the city is Science Works, a kaleidoscope of science phenomena. While in the city go to the amazing Aquarium or take a walk along South Bank beside the Yarra River or maybe peruse the Victorian Museum. It is a nice walk around Docklands which offers great views and impressive gourmet restaurants at reasonable prices. At night, why not see a show at one of our glorious old theatres.
Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is the world's sixth-largest country by total area. Our country offers boutique, luxury, family and even sometimes quirky accommodation for the most meticulous traveller.
