I love Melbourne more and more all the time . Such a comfortable and clean city . If the public transportation projects go ahead it will become a near to perfect city to live in . Fantastic photo compilation by the way

What many people don't realise is that Melbourne for its short European history has some magnificent old architecture and quite a bit of history .

You can sample this in some of the city lanes or many 100 plus year old houses and tree lined streets around many of its inner suburbs .

In fact many of its suburbs have more charm and character than some of the European city suburbs i've visited . Of course it can never claim to have 500 year old buildings like they do in Europe but many people would be surprised to learn that Melbourne does indeed have more history than what many foreign people would imagine .

It is pretty much considered to have the most intact Victorian era architecture outside of the U.K.

Minus the fact that is sprawls like crazy... Melbourne is amazing. I will be calling this place home in March. I will miss Brisbane and the beautiful weather we have here, but Melbourne is truly an urban gem. You don't find many cities in the world like it.

Dont worry about the weather in March, you may find it hotter than Brisbane at that time of the year.......

outstanding photographs Platypus! hopefully the recent rains will put some life into the dead looking grass around Melbourne haha

The only missing ingredient to these photos is a showcase of the amazing laneways and arcades of Melbourne. The great man 'The Collector' has this superb thread on these laneways

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=653021

A quick sample. Thanks to The Collector
