Located in Victoria, Australia's southernmost mainland state, Melbourne is the capital city and is also home to the majority of Victoria's population. Australia's second most populous city, Melbourne is the main metropolitan area and has a population of approximately 4.1 million people.
As the map above shows, Melbourne is located on Port Phillip Bay with the CBD situated on the banks of the famous Yarra River. Melbourne's location is a big part of its attraction as it extends from the city along the shoreline of the bay and into the hinterland.
Also home to the largest tram network in the world, Melbourne's wide range of accommodation options (also displayed on the above map) are all easily accessed and close to a range of shopping, dining and attractions.
