We Love Melbourne. Victoria’s capital city is crammed full of fun things to do, fabulous sights, great food and superb coffee. The city has plenty of free attractions, parks and gardens, things to do with kids and good beaches. Melbourne is a large city with a population of around 5 million and yet it is easy to explore.
Getting out of the city is simple too, one of the biggest attractions in the state is the Great Ocean Road and the famous Twelve Apostles, the coast can be visited in a day, though two or three days is better. A little closer to the city and great for day trips are the wine producing region of the Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges, well-known for the 1000 Steps as well as Puffing Billy Steam Train, lovely villages and super bushwalks.
