Melbourne has grown into a large metropolis since it’s gold rush fueled beginnings in the 1850s. Sitting on the banks of the Yarra river, the city saw a massive boom thanks to the wealth gold prospectors acquired in the gold rush. Remnants of that era can still be seen in some buildings built during that time, which are still standing to this day. The city is great for touring no matter which time of year you are visiting. Here are our top landmarks to tour and things to do on your next visit to ‘Marvellous Melbourne’
