It’s no secret why Melbourne has been voted the worlds’ most liveable city multiple times. We are the arts, culture and sporting capital of Australia. We have beaches, ski fields, wineries and forests. Our fashion and shopping options are extensive, our train and tram networks make getting around a breeze and we brew arguably the best coffee in the world!
There is a fabulous lifestyle on offer for everyone. Families love the wide-open spaces and parks, zoos, museums and our excellent education and healthcare systems. Sport fans enjoy many major sporting events including the grand prix, tennis, cricket and AFL. And we have a vibrant nightlife, with concerts, theatres, galleries and award-winning restaurants.
Melbourne has a highly diverse population, with over a third of us born overseas, and we have a strong foodie culture with every variety of cuisine on offer. Diversity and inclusion is supported and encouraged in the workplace, and Australia is one of the most LGBTQIA-friendly countries in the world.
No matter where you’re from or what your interests are, you’ll find a home in Melbourne!
