Introduction to Melbourne
Melbourne won the Economist's world's most liveable city award in 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011, and always ends up near the top of the polling. It's also a very queer-friendly city that is widely referred to as Australia's Arts and Culture Capital; a creative and dynamic city that favours the curious mind with its intriguing laneways, basements and rooftops. Marvellous Melbourne unveils herself slowly - you just need to venture out to explore, and you'll be pleasantly surprised at what you find!
