The capital of Victoria, Melbourne is the second largest city in Australia. The city is located on Port Phillip Bay hugging the banks of the Yarra River.
Having been ranked as one of the three most "livable" cities in the world, Melbourne is the place for shopping, cafes and restaurants, chocolate, parks and architecture, funky laneways, arts, sport, commerce, education, music, comedy and theatre, books and writers.
Melbourne's literary heritage and culture was internationally recognised in August 2008, with the city's designation as the world's second UNESCO City of Literature, part of UNESCO's Creative Cities Network. No wonder it is the site of the second ever world convention celebrating women's crime writing: the SheKilda Convention.
It's easy to get around Melbourne via its iconic trams (including the City Circle Number 35 free tram), buses (including the free Tourist Bus) both with commentary. Trains, trams and buses service all areas making exploring the city easy and comfortable.
