Known for its street art and alleyways, but also a stove’s throw a way from good hikes and surfing, Melbourne is not to be missed.

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.
