The city of Melbourne is set around the shores of beautiful Port Phillip Bay. A buzzing city set out in a large rectangle formation boasting a lively pulse of arts, food, fashion and more in a marvelous multi-cultural setting.
It is also the closest major cosmopolitan centre to Victoria’s alpine ranges and ski resorts. With Mt Buller, Mt Hotham, Falls Creek and Mt Baw Baw, four of Australia’s fabulous ski resorts only between 2 to 4.5 hours drive, Melbourne provides a perfect starting point to any visitors winter holiday.
Visitors will be able to find everything they require for a trip to the slopes with Melbourne's local Ski, Snowboard and Alpine Wear shops. There are over 20 stores catering to the winter seasons conveniently located around the CBD all stocking the latest brands and gear.
Melbourne may seem like a planned city, designed perfectly amongst a balanced grid of streets and laneways. However there is a boiling pot of energy and creative juices ready to burst from its seams that become evident when the sun goes down.
You will find everything you could possibly need when visiting Melbourne. The finest food, a thriving arts scene, retail therapy to please any 'shoppaholic' and a nightlife that will challenge the best of them.
