What’s on in Melbourne

About Melbourne

Melbourne is a creative, exciting, ever-changing city with surprises to be discovered around every corner. The city has an unrivalled calendar of major events, progressive dining scene, hidden laneways and art spaces, and unique regional escapes are just a short drive away.

Delegates to Melbourne will have no trouble filling their downtime when in town for a business event and will find it easy and convenient to experience the energy and vibrancy of the world’s most liveable city.

With regular medal-winning appearances in the Economist’s Most Liveable Cities list (taking the top award for the last seven consecutive years) Melbourne has a right to be boastful. But despite its temperate climate, safe streets, cosmopolitan lifestyle and beautiful setting, locals remain low-key about their city. They know that Melbourne is Australia’s undisputed event, sport, culture and food capital; a city with a European approach to style and a lifestyle that puts it in the fast lane. No need for show.

Melbourne’s airport has more than 300 international and over a thousand domestic arrivals per week, providing superb access from across Australia and the world. Integrated public transport and centrally located facilities combine to make Melbourne the perfect destination.
