Melbourne: one of the best cities to live in.
The second most populated city in Australia, Melbourne, is one of the best cities to live in, worldwide. It has made it to the top of the charts for several years, also ranking number four as one of the most expensive cities in the world.
The city was founded in 1835 by John Batman, and rumor has it the name was to be “Batmania”! (Melbourne sounds much better…) Located in the region or province of Victoria, this city played an important rule during the Victorian Gold rush of the same time period, and is still an important cultural landmark of Australia.
The Yarra River is an important body of water in the city, marking one of the borders of the “Hoddle Grid” (or the central business district of the city).
Also, the city is home to Australian Television as well as the majority of the country of Australia’s cultural festivals (mostly art and film). Finally, the city houses many of the essential medical research facilities of the Victoria province.
