"Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia."
― Charles M. Schulz
But what really makes this city different from many others - it’s the vibrant energy that helps you feel joyful, high-spirited and full of pep.
The other reason to visit Melbourne includes attending major sportig events. It’s easy to go sports mad in Australia, which hosts events for cricket fans, footy fiends, rugby lovers, rev-heads and marathon runners. You will surely love exploring Melbourne surrounding regions such as Grampians National Park ( a great destination for camping, climbing, scenic drives, bushwalks and nature study) and The Great Ocean Road (one of the world's most scenic coastal drives).
And of course don’t miss one of Australia’s most popular attractions on Phillip Island (only 139.5 km from Melbourne). At sunset you’ll be amazed by little penguins returning ashore after a day’s fishing. This event is called penguin parade and tourists from all over the world come here to enjoy the procession of these cute creatures.
