The surrounding area of the Yarra Valley provides spectacular scenery, while the city is packed with all the modern conveniences you could ask for.

Don't forget, our expat members are here to answer all your queries, from, "what's the best wine tasting tour?" to "when's the best time to visit the hot springs?". We have created a community especially to make sure you enjoy your new life in Melbourne to the fullest. It's reassuring to know that no matter what happens, you won't be alone!

Active Living for Expats in Melbourne
With cricket, surfing, beach, volleyball, and rugby sporting favorites, there's plenty to keep active residents busy, or if you're more of a spectator, you may prefer to soak up the atmosphere instead.
Throughout the year there are also a number of festivals celebrating Melbourne's wine and food industry; get involved in the Good Food and Wine Show, visit the Queen Victoria Night Market and taste all the delights at the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.
For job seekers, Melbourne's economy is strong and hosts the headquarters of many corporations. Main areas of employment include ICT, life sciences, education, healthcare, and finance. With nine universities and half of the country's bio-tech companies based here, the city is particularly exciting for researchers and scientists.
The other great industry of Melbourne is of course, tourism; around 20 million visitors a year contribute to a thriving, rich tourist culture. Of course this means event planners, caterers, and hoteliers will be in good company. Take a look at our guide to working in Melbourne for comprehensive information.
