I love Australia, the people are so nice and the culture is so laid back and relaxed. I was lucky enough to tour the city and go surf at Bells beach.

The "mini Europe" of Australia. I met a lot of Europeans (mostly Germans) who couldn't have cared less about Melbourne, and moved on quickly in their Australian travels. As an American who has traveled much of Europe, I liked it - but it definitely doesn't give much taste of Australia. It is, however, perfect for about two days worth of your time - and then as a launching pad for the magnificent Great Ocean Road.

Melbourne and Sydney have always fought tooth and nail for top spot honours in Aussie. If you love arts, culture, sports, food, history and style then Melbourne is tough to beat. While Sydney can be brash and in your face Melbourne is mellow and cool - I know which I prefer!

Melbourne is underrated and viewed as a modest sister city compared to Sydney. Don't be fooled though. Melbourne is more multicultural, and arguably more cosmopolitan. Plus, you have the beaches, the starting point to the Great Ocean Road and wineries.

Known as Australia's cultural capital, the weather isn't quite as nice as Sydney but the laid back sophistication of Melbourne makes it incredibly charming. Wonder the lanes, explore the food and art scene, discover a few speakeasy style bars and then head out to wine country.

Great city, very walkable, friendly people. Restaurant service is generally not very good but I think that's because they don't work for tips. Not as warm as I thought it would be for summer but probably because it's not humid.

Melbourne has the best coffee, amazing restaurants and a gorgeous mish mash of culture, sport and weather but as a local I also hate some parts of it (hello Docklands! Hello Myki!). It's easy to live here in some ways, but food isn't cheap and like so many Australian cities, it's trying to be something without being truly comfortable in its skin. Also, it's middle aged spread has resulted in some incredibly ugly suburbs which I would avoid like the plague! Stick with the inner city suburbs or head 50-100 kilometres out to the Yarra Valley or the beaches.
