Melbourne and Multiculturalism

I heard today that Melbourne is the second most multicultural city in the world. I am not surprised! Melbourne is a city that embraces cultural diversity. It is this mix of different people and cultures that contributes to Melbourne being a vibrant and exciting place to live and work. And it's really good that the city of Melbourne provides facilities and services to cater for all people of all backgrounds, and to ensure members of the community can benefit from those services.

Once again, I just wanted to say I am proud to be a Melburnian.

It was Melbourne's birthday yesterday. 150 years ago the good ship Enterprize landed here and a city was born.

I was born in Sydney but have adopted Melbourne as my heart home.
With great food, coffee, arts and natural diversity ranging from beaches to snow fields - why not!

WOW good on the good ship Enterprize :-)

Yes I can relate to you Kel. Although I was born in Hong Kong, Melbourne is certainly my heart home now. I just love the city, and feel blessed to call it home.
