Marvellous Melbourne, Australia
Before the arrival of European settlers, the Melbourne area was occupied for an estimated 31,000 to 40,000 years by fewer than 20,000 people from Australian Aboriginal regional tribes. Now Melbourne is the capital of the region, with a total population of approximately 3.8 million people, making it the second most populous city in Australia after Sidney. During the Victorian gold rush of the 1850s, it was transformed into one of the world’s largest and wealthiest cities.
Today it is a centre for the arts, commerce, industry, education, entertainment, sport and tourism in Australia and the southern hemisphere. It is the birthplace of cultural institutions such as Australian film (as well as the world’s first feature film), Australian television, Australian rules football, the Australian impressionist art movement and contemporary and traditional music. Often referred to as the nation’s cultural capital, and ranked tops in the world’s most livable cities ratings – with plenty of attractions such as museums, beautiful parks, great restaurants, rich cultural life and lots of events and festivals throughout the year – Melbourne is an ideal place for you to enjoy a Smooth Jazz Sunday Brunch.
