Melbourne is also known as Australia’s sporting and cultural capital.

Savvy shoppers make a bee line for Queen Victoria market.

To get your bearings of this great city head for the 55th floor of the Rialto building where you will find the Melbourne observation deck.

A must see while you are in the city is Cooks cottage, complete with a pretty cottage garden and relics of Captain James Cook.

The cottage was actually built in England in 1755 but transported to Melbourne in the 1930’s.
