Melbourne is the second most populous city in the Land Down Under. It offers a calmer and cleaner ambiance to Sydney and makes it a preferable place to reside despite the extreme weather conditions. Melbourne can be said to be the art city of Australia. The metropolis provides a canvas for the artistic expressions of those living in it and the laneways are home to sometimes controversial street art, or often known as graffiti. Between the mix of classic and modern era, the diversity of cultures found in the city and the invigorating lifestyle, Melbourne becomes such a magnet for the romantics with a creative heart.
