Melbourne is Victoria’s coastal capital and is a city home to stately 19th century buildings and tree-lined boulevards. The CBD is strikingly modern with plazas, bars, restaurants and cultural events along the Yarra River all year-round. Melbourne is best known for its celebration of arts culture in Australia, boasting the iconic Arts Precinct with the Arts Centre Melbourne and National Gallery of Victoria. With most parts of the CBD accessible by tram, Melbourne is easy to navigate and afford for students. Voted number 1 for the World’s Most Livable City five years in a row, choosing this culturally vibrant and youthful place is an ideal choice when studying at University.
