Melbourne tourism 'picking up well'

Article content

9 February 2010

Travellers appear to have a renewed interest in Melbourne and the Australian state of Victoria as a whole, one year after bushfires hit the area.

According to the Daily Mail, tourism was affected by the events of February 2009.

However, people are now said to be returning and the attractions of the city were highlighted for those considering a visit this year.

Sebastian Lander of the Daily Mail explained that Melbourne is often considered to be the most culturally-diverse of the Australian state capitals.

"The profits of the 19th-century gold rush can be seen all around the city in its elegant architecture, but the modern world has plenty to offer in terms of epic buildings," he wrote, adding that a "breathtaking" skyline is the result.

He recommended the Hotel Lindrum as a luxury accommodation option, adding that theatres and art galleries provide ample entertainment.

Last month, the Guardian recommended that those who are looking for a quirky experience of Australia choose Melbourne over Sydney.
