"What is Melbourne for You?"
There is no doubt that Melbourne, Australia is a happening and exciting place to be.
It has something special and is growing steadily as a world-class city that can hold its own amongst other international favourites. Melbourne has been listed as one of the world's most liveable cities for quite some time.
It is changing at such a rapid pace that the Melbourne of 20 years ago is barely recognisable.
Melbourne is young, alive, entertaining, and constantly changing.
What we love - and this distinguishes from other places we have lived - is the passion and enthusiasm with which Melburnians pursue their particular niche and passion, whatever it happens to be. We embrace our activities with such fervour - in the arts, music, fashion, design, sports or a long line of cultural festivals.
We LOVE our city and this is contagious.
It is what gives this city presence, depth and soul - a real genuine trait. We are no longer at the end of the world trying to catch up to the cities overseas, but we have something cutting edge and with style.
The Need for personal information
Melbourne is friendly and beautiful - with art on street corners, tree-lined boulevards and parklands that extend right into the heart of the city, and a unique tram system that makes it so easy to get around.
However, you won't be able to absorb its life in a quick glance by walking its main streets or riding a tram. You will enjoy the aesthetics of the cityscape, but you may miss the Melbourne charm entirely.
To know this city, you need to immerse yourself in one of its unique facets.
It has many subcultures, personalities and styles, and it is these layers and specifics that make it so interesting.
Melbourne has a vibrant arts and music scene, live music venues, markets, designers, community activities, eccentric Cafes, cobbled laneways, quirky shops, intimate bars and restaurants, festivals, activities and events.
With the real Melbourne life taking place in the city's many crannies and niches, connecting with it may not necessarily be that obvious, yet it is these specific experiences that will give you the Melbourne feel.
The thing is, as much as you might like to explore a particular area or subculture, you need to know where to start.
