22 Sep Melbourne Crowned Australia’s Most Liveable City AGAIN !!
Melbourne, located on the south eastern corner of the Australian mainland in the state of Victoria, is proclaimed one of the world’s most liveable cities. Melbourne promotes itself as the cultural and sporting capital of the nation. Boasting Australia’s largest performing arts venue, the arts precinct offers a range of performance spaces, accommodating drama, dance, Broadway musicals, grand opera and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, along with exhibition spaces, the National Victorian Art Gallery and museum. The renowned Sidney Myer Music Bowl, located in the nearby Kings Domain Gardens hosts a variety of outdoor performances in the summer. The locals pack a blanket and a picnic basket and soak up the ambience of a variety of free concerts on balmy summer evenings.
Just a short stroll away, is Southbank Promenade, a tree-lined pedestrian walkway running along the southern bank of the Yarra River. Offering an array of cafés, fine restaurants and shops, the promenade ends at the Crown Casino and entertainment complex. Outdoor sculptures and street performers add to the rich flavour of this area.
In addition to being the home of Aussie Rules Football, Melbourne is home to the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), the venue for the tradition of the Boxing Day Ashes Test and proudly hosts other major international sporting events, including the Australian Tennis Open at the Rod Laver Arena, Australian Formula One motor racing and the Australian Masters golfing championship.
Melbourne’s reputation as one of the world’s most liveable cities is due, in part, to almost 480 hectares of parks and gardens, which, along with providing a perfect backdrop for a leisurely stroll, power walk or jog create a habitat for a variety of Australian native wildlife, making it also, one of the world’s most biologically diverse cities – the ideal destination for your Australian lifestyle.
