Why It's Worth It

The stylish and arty city of Melbourne is nestled at the apex of Port Philip bay. It is described as a blend of old and new, having old Victorian and Edwardian charm mixed with modern architecture. A calendar full of sporting events attracts visitors and celebrities throughout the year. A visit to Melbourne can be enhanced by exploring Victoria's beautiful coastline from Mornington Peninsula in the southeast to the famous Great Ocean Road in the southwest. —Rishad Mehta
