Melbourne’s charm is characterized by its enchanting laneways, stunning waterfront precincts and trendy neighborhoods, and provides an endless choice of shopping hot spots and culturally-diverse, award-winning restaurants, cafés and bars in weird and wonderful locations. There are plenty of things to do in Melbourne. Easily navigated on foot, the city’s confidence and success are infectious; whether closing a deal or relaxing with colleagues and new friends, Melbourne is the perfect destination. Melbourne is the capital of the Australian state of Victoria. It is situated on the southeastern coast, at the head of Port Phillip Bay. The major city is home to over 136,000 people and serves as the hub of a large metropolitan area—the world's southernmost, with a population of over 1,000,000 people. In Australia, it is only next to Sydney in terms of population, and there is a friendly competition between the two cities, which have different features due to location and history. Despite the fact that Melbourne's flat terrain has resulted in the regular creation of a rectangular layout of streets, the city boasts many magnificent parks, and those with an eye for architectural detail and history will find much that is varied and attractive. Melbourne has such a reputation for conservative and economic stability, qualities that have contributed towards its prosperity and are reflected in the main city's growing skyline and the quickly expanding eastern suburbs.
