Why Book A Go Holiday? - Harvey World Travel

Welcome to Melbourne

Victoria’s capital, Melbourne, sits on the Yarra River and

around the shores of Port Phillip Bay. Lauded for its sense of

style and elegance, Melbourne boasts glamorous festivals

and events, Australia’s best shopping, a lively passion for

eating and drinking, and a flourishing interest in the arts.

Restored and preserved nineteenth century architecture, built

following the discovery of gold, provides a heady reminder of

a prosperous age, while beautifully tended parks and gardens

present a therapeutic respite from the pace of city life.

Melbourne and Victoria host some of Australia’s most

prestigious events throughout the year, including the Spring

Racing Carnival culminating in the Melbourne Cup in

November, the Australian Open Tennis Championships in

January, the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix in March,

Melbourne Food and Wine Festival in March, Melbourne

International Jazz Festival in May and the Melbourne

International Flower and Garden Show in March and April.
