Australia’s second largest city is home to many impressive buildings, and has loads of things to do, including a zoo where you can see a duckbilled platypus, as well as amazing museums and gardens. Melbourne has been ranked the world’s best city to live in, and it’s a very enjoyable place to spend any time in.
