Melbourne - your host city
Melbourne, sitting on the banks of the Yarra river, is a beautiful city with a diverse heritage, a lively and cosmopolitan pulse, and has been voted as one of the most livable cities in the world. With its many grand and architecturally significant buildings and spacious parks, Melbourne has developed as the cultural, fashion, shopping, sporting and culinary centre of Australia.

Melbourne city itself is laid out in a large rectangle and give a sense of ‘everything in its place’ restraint. You will quickly find that this is only skin deep as the city has a creative energy that is almost infectious. The CBD is myriad distinct precincts - each with its own flavour and charm. Weaving a maze through the city grid, Melbourne’s streets and laneways uncover hidden treasures and a charming, intimate atmosphere and are an absolute must to explore it’s secret galleries, shops and cafes.

Melbourne has a well-deserved reputation for offering a superb food and wine experience. Chic restaurants serving a variety of cuisine types, inspirational chefs and a lively café scene, not to mention an array of boutique wineries circling the city, are just some of the reasons why Melbourne is considered the height of gastronomic excellence. For food, art and fashion lovers, Melbourne is heaven.

Melbourne weather is renowned for it’s changeability, so we would advise you to bring an umbrella and don't forget to bring a warm coat, hat and gloves (if you really feel the cold). Day time temperatures in May can range from 12°C to 22°C with night time temperature as low as 4°C to 6°C so you will need a coat for the evening.
