Melbourne
A spread out city of gardens and a grid of wide streets sloping up from the Yarra River, Melbourne, capital of the Australian state of Victoria, is a delight to visit with its European ambience. Trams rattle along the shopping thoroughfares with their elegant Victorian facades and inviting outdoor cafes and out into the leafymore
Melbourne Special - Katie. Date of travel: Aug 2008
Had a wonderful, and all too short, 3 day getaway in Melbourne with my husband. We stayed right in the city on Little Collins Street and fell in love instantly with the people, city architecture and the trams. Did Lygon St Carlton for dinner Friday night, shopped Richmond and Chapel St, dinner Saturday in St Kilda, National Gallery of Vic, Markets, and thousands of coffees in many little places in Desgraves Street, The Block Arcade etc. I recommend you stay in the city and catch trams everywhere. Shoppoing and fashion the best in Aus... Loved it!!!

When I think of Melbourne I think of the word.........Awesome. Well, I only lost $5 from gambling at the casino and the parents came away from Melbourne unscathed from huge losses .... along without any big wins. Better than in the negative I guess. Here's a rundown on what we did: 24th Sunday: Yum char. Queen Vic markets. Tram ride. Casino buffet and casino bars vip room and the PUB (Bar) at the Casino. 25th Monday: Anzac Day march thru Federation Square. Richmond Vietnamese lunch. Chapel St shopping . Mercury Lounge . 26th: Hard Rock Cafe. Japanese lunch then the New qv centre (Great shopping) . Docklands. Federation sq. Moving light art exhibition. Overall it was a Magnificent Weekend. A picture of Federation Square is enclosed. Enjoy your Journey. Tour Operator: Independent

Although Sydney is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, I preferred the atmosphere in Melbourne - less business orientated and black-suited, more friendly, less cosmopolitan, more Australian, and more cultural. It has a nice mix of the old and the new - old trams and modern glass skyscrapers give it a fascinating character. It also has better access to its surrounds - brilliant wine farms, mountains for skiing and hiking, and a much less touristed and more beautiful coastline close by.
