With excellent facilities, a beautiful bayside setting and plenty of bright sunny days, it's little wonder Melbourne is considered one of the world's most liveable cities.

Green Melbourne

Make the most of the city's rivers, parks, coastline and bay. Pack a picnic lunch for a day wandering around the lush surrounds of the botanic gardens, take in city views on a bike ride along the Yarra River, or take a hot air balloon ride over the city at dawn.

Choose your own adventure

Whether it's golf or boating, tennis or Tai Chi, Melbourne has plenty of things to see and do outdoors to suit your interests and lifestyle. Stroll along the boardwalk in St Kilda or go for a dip at one of the many Melbourne beaches. Cruise down the Yarra on a boat tour or catch the ferry across to Williamstown for a day of fishing.
