Top Reasons to Go to Melbourne

Fabulous Markets: Melbourne has nearly a dozen major markets. The huge Queen Victoria Market (the Vic) has more than 1,000 stalls. Others include the "foodie heaven" Prahran Market, and St. Kilda's Sunday market, awash with pottery and all things arty.

International Cuisine: Melbourne's dining scene is a vast smorgasbord of cuisines: Chinese restaurants on Little Bourke Street are the equal of anything in Hong Kong. Richmond's Victoria Street convincingly incarnates Vietnam.

Sizzling Nightlife: Melbourne's nightlife centers on King Street and Flinders Lane, with dozens of retro-style bars and clubs. Crown Casino's two nightclubs and the numerous bars along Southgate add life to the city center.

Sports Galore: Melburnians, like Aussies in general, do love a good match. The Melbourne Cup horse race in November brings the entire city to a standstill. The same is true of Australian Rules Football.
