Melbourne is the capital of the Australian state of Victoria. It is located on the bay of Port Phillip.

It was founded by British settlers in 1835. The discovery of gold in Victoria in the 1850s led to a gold rush.

It is one of the leading financial centers in the Asia-Pacific region and known as Australia's "cultural capital".
