Voted as one of the most livable cities in the world Melbourne has something to please everyone. It is well-known for it’s coffee, being noted as the coffee capital of Australia. Melbourne is the largest city in the state of Victoria and resides in Eastern Australia. It’s also a coastal city meaning it get’s the best of both worlds. Sitting along the Yarra River the famous South Bank has an abundance of restaurants and bars to ignite your tastebuds. If you aren’t afraid of heights then why not take a trip up the Eureka Skydeck. If you take a little trip outside Melbourne city, then you will be met with the beautiful suburbs. Brighton Beach has the famous colourful beach huts.

For something a little different why not experience the smaller city of Cairns. Perhaps not one of the more well-known cities in Australia but certainly has a lot to offer any person who is looking for an adventure. There is, after all, the Great Barrier Reef to experience. Famous for the coral reefs and delights of the sea world. This place is the perfect destination for sailing and snorkelling if that is your kind of thing. Once a small sleepy town Cairns has fast changed over the years. While you are here, you must have a swim in the saltwater lagoon. If you love your beaches, then Palm Cove is the place to go. Cairns has a lot to offer and although it’s most famous for the Barrier Reef there is plenty to see and do.

If you haven’t visited these great Australian cities yet, start planning your trip now. You won’t be disappointed.
