Melbourne is Australia’s second city, and offers plenty to see and do whether you are staying for a couple of days or a few weeks. The city is often described as being one of the world’s most livable big cities and is known for its parks and open spaces, Victorian architecture, arts and culture, vibrant restaurant scene and intriguing neighbourhoods. And Melbourne also makes a convenient base from which to explore the rest of Victoria, including its miles of stunning coastline. There are plenty of accommodation options in the city, but staying in one of the many Melbourne holiday homes is a practical and affordable way to experience the city. A holiday home allows you to experience Melbourne as a temporary local, and is often a lot cheaper than staying in a hotel, especially for groups or families travelling together.
