The stunning combination of the old and the new, skyscrapers and ethnic communities, lavish parks, gardens and also old heritage buildings- it’s a visual delight. The country’s second largest city with modern towers and preserved Victorian era architecture is a perfect base to travel to the Yarra Valley.
