Laid-back yet packed with things to see and do, Melbourne is a great place to go for today's hip tourist. It's known as Australia's cultural capital since it offers all the world-class museums and leisure activities that one would expect to find in a major city. However, with charming neighborhoods, cool street art, and impressive sports venues, Melbourne also prides itself on often being rated one of the best places to live.

墨爾本氣氛悠閒但有許多可看可做的事,是個很適合今天的時尚觀光客前往的好去處。它被稱為澳洲的文化首都,因為它提供任何人預期在大城市能找到的所有世界級的博物館和休閒活動。然而,因為有迷人的住宅區、酷炫的街頭藝術和令人驚嘆的運動場館,墨爾本也以常被評選為最適合居住的地方之一而自豪。

 

To get to know this city, first-time visitors should head straight for Federation Square, which is considered Melbourne's beating heart. Around this open space, there are striking buildings that host cultural performances and exhibitions all year. The geometric shapes of the buildings' glass surfaces give the area a very modern feel. While you're at Federation Square, drop by the Visitor Centre. There you can book walking tours and organize the rest of your Melbourne visit.

要認識這個城市,第一次造訪的人應該直接前往「聯邦廣場」,這裡被認為是墨爾本最活躍的心臟地帶。在這個開放空間附近,有全年都有主辦文化表演和展覽的醒目建築。這些建築物玻璃表面的幾何形狀給予這個地區一種很現代的感覺。你在聯邦廣場時,順道去一下旅客中心。在那裡你可以預約徒步導覽並規畫其他的墨爾本之旅。

 

Another way to discover the city is to take a cruise down the Yarra River. The departure point for the cruise boats is connected to Federation Square by a path under a bridge.

另一個發掘這個城市的方式是搭船遊覽沿著雅拉河順流而下。遊船的出發點與聯邦廣場以一條橋下步道相連。
