Melbourne
Melbourne is on the cutting edge of cultural and culinary trends, but also takes time to honor its Aboriginal past. See public artworks like those at Birrarung Marr park, as just one example. The synthesis of old and new is found throughout the city—turn-of-the-century Flinders Street Station stands just across the road from ultra-modern Federation Square. As for the city's people, they're get-up-and-go types who love the active lifestyle and high culture Melbourne offers. Join them by booking reservations at the finest restaurants, taking in a footy game at MCG, or touring the galleries of the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.
