History of Melbourne

The capital of Victoria and Australia’s second largest city, eclectic Melbourne has been voted the world’s most liveable city. Tasmanian settlers began to arrive in 1835. They acquired land from the Aboriginal tribes who lived along Port Phillip Bay and the Yarra River, and they named their new city after the second Viscount Melbourne, William Lamb, who was then the British prime minister. Just over 15 years later, Victoria became independent. The discovery of gold led to a building boom and an influx of new settlers.

The end of World War II triggered a second population boom, and the city blossomed. Although Melbourne was largely Anglo-Celtic initially, immigrants from Greece, Italy and Southeast Asia began arriving along with Jewish settlers. Melbourne began to transform to meet the needs of its burgeoning population. High rises replaced many of the original buildings, and streets stretched out in all directions. Those that were left were preserved as the culturally and historically significant structures that they were.

Visiting Melbourne

Melbourne is perhaps best known for its underground art culture, but it also offers sophisticated rooftop bars, vast green places and tucked-away coffee shops. The CBD is more than just a single district but is rather an eclectic group of neighbourhoods that include posh shopping, trendy boutiques, laid-back cafés, world-class restaurants, creative galleries, sports and gardens along the Yarra River. You can spend an afternoon at St. Kilda, walk through the hallowed roads perusing Victorian architecture or take in an art festival. Your holiday is only limited by your imagination.
