Moving to Melbourne?

Living in Melbourne

Melbourne is one of Australia's oldest cities and had previously been the world’s richest city. In present, Melbourne has a vast range of career opportunities, with the employment sector ever-growing and full of dynamic changes. Alongside its brilliant arts and cultural scene, the city is also Australia’s technology capital, meaning jobs in this sector come aplenty. If you intend on working in Australia, you should ensure that your employer sponsors your application for residency. Learn more about applying for Australian work visas here.

Melbourne can also be recognised as a sporting city within Australia, hosting a wide range of events such as the Formula One Grand Prix, Australian Open tennis and the Melbourne Cup horse racing. 

The climate in Melbourne is manageable, with colder winters and hot summers. The city has previously been given the title of having ‘four seasons in a day’, meaning the weather can often take considerable turns across a 24hr basis.
