Laurence takes a look down some of the laneways and finds out why Melbourne is Australia's Art & Culture capital.
Together with Emirates and Trailfinders, we're giving you the chance to discover an exciting, unexpected experience in Melbourne, Victoria, and revel in the country's sporting and cultural capital.
Melbourne is the gateway to the rest of Australia and an iconic city that should be included on every Australian holiday itinerary. Renowned as Australia’s cultural heart and soul, its sense of style and elegance, stunning major events & festivals portfolio, and a passion for great food and wine make it a must-see destination.

Outside Melbourne, but easily accessible and close to the city, you'll find a host of regions including the Yarra Valley and the Mornington Peninsula, both famed for their stunning valley and coastal scenery, and a huge number of boutique vineyards and cellar doors producing a wide variety of grapes, excellent fresh local produce.
Victoria is home to the iconic Great Ocean Road, Australia’s greatest coastal drive which takes you past the famous Twelve Apostles, magnificent limestone rock stacks that rise up majestically from the Southern Ocean. Amazing wildlife encounters can be found all along the Great Ocean Road – get up close to koalas, kangaroos and even platypus in their natural habitats.
