    Buzzing Melbourne City

    It might get the cooler weather, but Melbourne is one darn hot destination _ figuratively speaking, at least. Bohemians and artists, fashionistas and liberals of all shapes and sizes have long been colonizing its outward neighborhoods. From sandy St Kilda to the green bends of the Yarra River, they've nurtured quirky cocktail bars and gritty live music haunts by the bucket load. Elsewhere and ethnic enclaves bustle _ find Neapolitan pizza joints on Lygon and Levant mezze in Balaclava. Melbourne City vacation rentals also tout the roaring Docklands sporting stadiums _ a shrine to AFL _ and the elegant Victorian relics of the historic center to boot.

    Discover energetic Melbourne City

    Sportsters will have it that this is the epicenter of the AFL world, and you could catch a game at one of the colossal urban stadiums, even if the rules remain a mystery. Then there's the eclectic, electric medley of grunge and Latin jazz that issues from the clubs in cool Fitzroy and St Kilda, not to mention the menagerie of Italian, Chinese, Jewish, Turkic, and Japanese gastronomy in the center _ a lesson in sashimi platters anyone? Melbourne City vacation rentals can also be your ticket to safaris in the wilder side of Victoria state.

    Melbourne City is bursting at the seams with attractions

    The Yarra River is always a good place to start in Melbourne. Snaking through the center, it's lined with pretty parks and al fresco barbecue spots _ Australia wouldn't be Australia without the grills, now would it? Follow its courses to wide Federation Square, where the cutting-edge Australian Centre for the Moving Image has silver screen exhibits and digital art. Going even further will take you to the Royal Botanic Gardens of Victoria, to see blooming rainforest houses and lanky palm trees. Melbourne Zoo and the historic Luna Park in St Kilda are top choices if you've got the kids in tow.

    Melbourne City offers 4 seasons of fun

    Melbourne City might not enjoy the same year-round sun as some of Australia's tropical cities to the north, but it's certainly a year-round magnet for travelers nonetheless. Summertime _ from November to March _ sees neighborhoods like St Kilda come alive with backpackers and those eager to tan their bodies on the sands. Other times see the more rainy-day attractions come into their own. August is great for museum going. March has beautiful fall colors. October sees the bloom in the botanical gardens.

    Melbourne City is close to lush national parks

    Some of Australia's most acclaimed national parks lurk just on the peripheries of Melbourne. You could get Melbourne City vacation rentals on the south side of the metropolis, where good access to the coast means days exploring the sandy beaches and granite mountains of the Wilsons Promontory National Park. Others will be close to the surfing spots and whale watching outposts of Phillip Island. Others will give way to the Dandenong Ranges _ a land of koala bears and curious lyrebirds.
