Home of Sport in Melbourne


What can I say. Victoria has a plethora of sport. From AFL to Rugby League and Tennis to Formula 1, we have it all.

In winter, you will find most Victorians heading off to one of the football stadiums to watch a game.
In summer the same people will head off to the MCG to watch a game of cricket especially on Boxing day which is the biggest day on the cricket calendar.

But its not just football and cricket that people flock to watch. For some reason we are sports nuts, doesnt matter what is on, we will be there in droves

Melbourne - Worlds most liveable city

In 2005, Melbourne was voted "most liveable city" in the world. This is something that we have not taken lightly. As far as I am concerned, we have the best shopping, restaurants, sports, and lifestyle of anywhere else in Australia

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Most liveable city in the world as voted in 2004
  • Cons:be prepared for any weather
  • In a nutshell:Wouldnt live anywhere else

    I read somewhere that the most liveable city in the world in 2005 was Vancouver, Canada. I haven't been to either city :-( Hope to visit both cities soon and decide by myself...
