Melbourne is the most important political, business and cultural centre in the state of Victoria. With more than 4.25 million inhabitants across the entire metropolitan area, Melbourne is the second most populated city in Australia, after Sydney. Visitors have lots to see and do in Melbourne. You can start by exploring the many museums in the city, such as the Melbourne Museum, a large museum complex that includes several facilities of great cultural importance. The city agenda offers a great diversity of events and festivals throughout the year. For example, Melbourne Cup Day is an important day for the city and a federal holiday in the state since 1877. The largest horse race in the country takes place on this day. During the summer, the Melbourne International Jazz Festival offers a wide variety of concerts in bars and clubs all over the city - many of them offer free admission.
The city's architecture is also worth a visit. The combination of modern buildings, such as the impressive Eureka Tower; with older ones, such as the Royal Exhibition Building, offer a beautiful landscape. Other highlights in the city include the Shrine of Remembrance, the Rialto Towers and the Flinders Street Railway Station. At Royal Botanic Gardens you can get an overview of the diversity of the Australian flora. You can also discover plants from all over the world, with a total of over 10,000 species. Tourists will also enjoy a visit to the Melbourne Zoo. It is the oldest zoo in Australia, modeled on the London Zoo, and home to more than 320 species. As a result of Port Phillip Bay's location in Melbourne, there are numerous opportunities for sunbathing, diving in the sea and doing various sporting activities. We recommend the beaches of Brighton Beach, St. Kilda Beach or Williamstown Beach.
As the distance between cities can be long in Australia, customers can take more advantage from a caravan than a rental car. For example, if you wish to travel with your campervan hire from Melbourne to Sydney, you will have a 9-hour drive ahead. With a caravan, this trip can be more comfortable, since you can stop on the way to rest in a campsite in the region. Make sure to go shopping in the city's supermarkets before continuing on the trip, in order to prepare and enjoy fresh meals with a beautiful landscape as background or even under a starry sky.
