  The cathedral opposite Flinders St. Station

Melbourne is Australia's second biggest city. It has a great nightlife and loads of things to do during the day. Many people say Meblourne has a bit of a European feel to it. I suppose just a little bit because of the architecture and the trams. But that is probably it in my opinion.

I stayed in Melbourne for quite some time actually, since my intention was to get a job in the city, but as in Sydney to get a decent job proved to be quite difficult. In the end I decided to move to Echuca since they had work for me there.

Things to see and do while in Melbourne and surroundings are definitely the Great Ocean Road, the Yarra Valley, the various museums in the city, and St. Kilda is fine for a couple of hours too. At night make sure to check out the casino, which is fantastic. When you walk along the river at night right beside the casino, sometimes fire is coming out of the lanterns which is a real spectacle!!

Directions: Melbourne is the capital of the state of Victoria and in the south east of the country.
