Overview Of The Port Of Melbourne

About Melbourne
Melbourne is the capital of the state of Victoria, in south east Australia.

Federation Square is the city's main gathering spot. Here you will find art galleries, cinemas, shops and cafes surrounding a large open area. The city's excellent Visitor Centre is located here in spacious underground premises.

At the Ian Potter Centre - National Gallery of Victoria, you'll get free access, except for special exhibitions. The museum houses the largest collection of Australian art, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.

The National Gallery of Victoria International is located south of the Yarra River, accessed by the Princes Bridge and St Kilda Road.

St. Paul's Cathedral, located across from Federation Square, is English Gothic Revival in style with an interior of decorative mosaics, floor tiles and wood carvings. The church spire is climbable.

For a view of the city, Eureka Skydeck 88 (Riverside Quay, Southbank) affords the highest public view in the Southern Hemisphere. If you are feeling brave, try The Edge.

Queen Victoria Market, off Elizabeth Street is one of the largest pavilion style markets of any major city in the world.

The Royal Botanic Gardens founded in 1846, has 50,000 plant specimens from all over the world.

The Docklands is a commercial, residential, sports, marina, hotel and restaurant complex in the old industrial port area.

Nearby St Kilda is a quirky seaside suburb with a large number of restaurants, pastry shops and an attractive esplanade, good beach and long pier with old fashioned amusements.

Rippon Lea, built in 1868, is a grand suburban mansion set in 14 acres and features a garden with a pond, waterfall, windmill and lookout tower.

Sovereign Hill, near Ballarat, re-creates Victoria's gold rush days during the 1850's. See tented and mud-and-bark hut living quarters and watch horses hauling carts and carriages and propelling machinery. You can pan for gold or explore a mine.

For trips into the suburbs and nearby cities, trains leave from either the Southern Cross station (formerly Spencer Street) or Flinders Street station, both located in the city centre.

There is a huge range of cuisine available in Melbourne, ranging from local dishes and seafood to international favourites such as Italian and Spanish.
