Melbourne is a great place to work and live

Melbourne is famous for its sporting events (particularly Australian Rules Football), fashion, festivals and café culture. The city has repeatedly been voted as one of the world’s most liveable cities. Melbourne is a young city. Half its population falls within a median age of 35 years. It is a good-looking city with beautiful historical buildings, public parks and gardens, juxtaposed with ultra-modern buildings and urban art.

Melbourne has a lot to offer, vibrant café and restaurant culture, fabulous nightlife, including live bands, theatres, cinemas, art galleries and specialty stores. It is considered to be fashion capital of Australia with a wealth of high-end boutiques and a strong sense of fashion. We have good public education and a thriving public health system, supported by a highly functioning private health system and a variety of associated health services supported by both the state and federal governments.

People who move to Melbourne can enjoy living the inner city lifestyle or one in the outlying suburbs with their quiet streets and proximity to schools as well as semi-rural locations. There are many quirky places to live in inner city Melbourne, a wide variety of public gardens and parks, access to beaches and a wide range of short trip holiday destinations such as wine regions, the Great Ocean Road, the penguins and seals in Phillip Island and the mountains in northern Victoria.

Australians generally enjoy living an outdoor lifestyle. We enjoy our temperate climate and being part of a prosperous and safe country.
