Located on the southeastern coast of Australia, Melbourne is the Capital of Victoria and one of the most well-loved travel destinations in the world. Melbourne is stylish, artistic, and vibrant and prides itself on its title as Australia’s cultural capital. For the fifth year in a row, Melbourne has been named the world’s most liveable city by The Economist.  Perhaps the best part of Melbourne is the intimacy that it beckons; it is best experienced as a local would experience it. For this reason, Melbourne easily becomes, perhaps, the best city to experience as a local through Elite Cultural Discovery.


Lifestyle in Melbourne is intimate, emotional, and passionate. With Melbourne’s feeling of openness, it invites its residents and visitors to understand what truly makes the city amazing. From public transportation to education, Melbourne is the most livable city in the world, with a nearly perfect 97.5 out of 100 score on The Economist’s livability index. Melbourne is lively but also laid back, so there is a place for everyone. It is a big city, but its building height limits make it feel small in a comfortable way. With a labyrinth of connecting laneways and allies, Melbourne gives off an “otherworldly” vibe, providing the city with endless dining and shopping secrets. ​


Melbourne is a highly multicultural city with an eclectic culinary combination of food and drink. The idea of chain restaurants is so alien that one can seldom find a Starbucks; as a matter of fact, there are only 4 in the entire city (which is remarkable when compared to NYC’s 283). This fact aligns with the extremely vibrant Australian coffee culture that values a good cup of locally brewed coffee above all else. The bottom line: you can find some of the best food and drink in the world in Melbourne. ​


Melbourne is laid-back, but that doesn't mean that Melbournians don’t know how to have a good time. As Australia’s cultural capital, countless musicians have originated from Melbourne and regularly come to Melbourne to perform. There are small venues all throughout the city that regularly host live performances of all musical genres. Alternatively, large venues, such as the Rod Laver Arena, consistently invite world famous musicians to perform. In regard to other leisure activities, Melbourne always has a festival or cultural event going on that you can attend. Nature scenery and outdoor activities are also popular in Melbourne.
