About the city 🌇

Melbourne, is the capital of the well-known Australian state, Victoria. With its combination of beaches, skyscrapers and vibrant nightlife, the city has been voted "The world's most livable city" seven times in a row. Of course, this has caused students from all over the world to flock to the metropolis, benefiting from the average temperature of 20C degrees all year round.

Out of the city's 4.2 million inhabitants, as many as 300,000 are students from Melbourne's well-known universities, about a third of whom are international students. This helps to make the city dynamic with countless sporting and cultural events all year round. The exotic selection of restaurants and cafes helps satisfy all taste buds and budgets, and just the idea of choosing an eatery in Melbourne is an adventure for itself.

The high proportion of students help make the bars and nightclubs a level you usually only see on Instagram, and the selection of them is something very special. Hip hop, pop, karaoke, Latino vibes? You name it, Melbourne has it.

The coolest thing about the city for many of Melbourne's residents and visitors is that regardless of your lifestyle and favourite leisure activities, there's something for every preference. If you're into beaches and surfing, food tours, museum visits, sports events, nature or simply willing to try discovering new sides of yourself, then Melbourne is undeniably the place for you.
