When you travel from Europe, like we did, you won’t see Europe-style Melbourne’s uniqueness at first. But the vivid city in the very south of Australia offers plenty of secret gems.

Tip: Try to stay in an Airbnb in one of the new apartment buildings in Southbank – you will get a breathtaking view on the city’s concrete jungle from your living room!
