Often described as Australia’s cultural capital, it’s also the sporting capital. The iconic MCG hosts many major sports events including international cricket matches and, of course, Australian Rules Football, culminating in the AFL Grand Final. Nearby Albert Park is the home of Australia’s Formula 1 Grand Prix racing.
It seems there’s a festival every month, with White Night Melbourne, Moomba, the Melbourne Flower and Garden Show, Melbourne’s International Comedy Festival and numerous others showcasing food and wine, international film and animation, arts, music, design, fashion and fireworks.
Day or night, you’ll find something to love about Melbourne!
