With a strong cultural offering including galleries, festivals and major events as well as some of the world's best restaurants, Melbourne is an innovative city capable of delivering extraordinary business events.
With a restaurant in the 51 - 120 list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants, it's no wonder Melbourne is establishing its credentials as top dining destination – but it’s not just the city’s restaurants, laneway bars and historic markets that make it an enticing destination.
The Victorian capital is also home to major international sporting events including the Australian Open, Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix and the Lexus Melbourne Cup. Melbourne's cultural offering extends to fashion, comedy festivals, art and performance.
Within an hour’s drive of Melbourne, the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula offer cool-climate wine growing regions with hands-on activities such as grape stomping, wine blending and tutored tastings. Further afield, explore the dramatic coastal scenes of the Great Ocean Road or be pampered in Daylesford’s spa country.
