Australia's most European city

A warm, purple sky at dusk stretches above the water, embracing Melbourne’s skyline – a blend of modern architecture set comfortably alongside ancestors of the Victorian era. Melbourne’s subtle appeal and its “European” charm are not on the main streets, but rather in the dressing rooms of boutiques from Chapel Street in the southern suburbs, all the way up to High Street in the North. Australian fashion labels are plentiful, and Melburnians take their food seriously, with more cafés and mouthwatering restaurants than you can shake a stick at. Its cozy and creative laneways will inspire even the most jet-lagged of travellers.
