Beaches · Parks · Nightlife
Greater Melbourne extends along the coastline and into the hinterlands, revealing a picturesque landscape composed of rolling hills, lush valleys, and gullies blanketed by thick native forests and vineyards. Greater Melbourne tourism thrives largely thanks to the city of Melbourne's vast selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, art galleries, historic sites, restaurants, shopping malls, and street markets, as well as the region's many natural attractions. Thanks to its proximity to the Yarra Valley and the ocean, a Greater Melbourne vacation allows you to surf in the Pacific, go on a wildlife safari, and travel on Australia's oldest preserved steam train on the very same day.
