Australia's second largest and most cosmopolitan city, Melbourne is bursting with life. It is well known for its celebration of cultural and sporting events - indeed the whole of Australia stops once a year for the Melbourne Cup - and for its shopping and restaurants. Melbourne is an ideal gateway to Victoria's attractions. Within only a few hours, visitors can enjoy Little Penguins parading up the beach on Phillip Island, the spectacular Twelve Apostles off the west coast, the charming villages and rugged ranges of the east, and the remnants of the goldmining era and the Murray's river towns to the north. Whether bushwalker, wine buff, surfer or skier, Victoria has something for everyone. With over 120 full-colour photographs, Melbourne and Victoria's Splendour celebrates the incredible beauty and diversity of this fascinating state and its sophisticated capital.
