ME LBOU RN E Where can you find Melbourne? Melbourne is situated in the the south east, in the capital of the state called ”Viktoria”. Melbourne is also a harbour city and you can find the metropolis near the bay called ”Port Philip”.

The city’s population

With its 4.2 million people it’s only fair that Melbourne is one of the most liveable cities in the whole world. It’s also a fact that more than half of the population is either born or have a parent that was born overseas, making Melbourne a multicultural city were the majority speaks more than one language.

Living and working in Melbourne

In the heart of the city there’s a place called ”Federation square” Which sort of represents the diversity of both Victoria and Melbourne. Both locals and tourists like to grab some food or maybe a drink at the restaurants and bars. Art galleries, free events and festivals are also commonly visited places. However Federation Square isn’t exactly the only place to find interesting things. There’s plenty of shops and different cafés everywhere. Melbournians got a particular love of sport unlike any other city in Australia. That’s actually why Melbourne is called the capital of sports. And like any other big city Melbourne's working life offers a great variety of working places. The people who don’t live in Melbourne’s inner city lives in the suburbs. There are a few suburbs such as Broadmeadows, Westal and Doventon

The climate

Australia is set in the southern hemisphere, which means that the weather is a complete reverse of what we’re used to in Europe. You can expect hot weather in summer, balmy autumn and springs, and cool winters. Usually, when the snow ceases to exist, the rainfall and cold breezes are there to cool down both visitors or inhabitants. Although it’s mostly sunny and warm weather and the beaches is filled with people.

Popular sports and activities Melbourne is a fitness capital. They have many popular sports there. Outside activities are very popular, include swimming, surfing and yachting and a lot more activities. Popular spectator sports are, rugby, Australian Rules football, tennis and motor sports. Melbourne has a newspaper that provide a useful sports section that daily and weekly lists local Melbourne sports events. Even shuffling are one of the popular things to do in Melbourne, especially hard style. Also jump style and techno style. Shuffling is a dance where you

Interesting fact There are a boy ”band” on youtube called Janoskians. They are very popular and many of the Melbournians know who they are. They put videos on youtube when they make a fool of themselves in public. For an example they drink coloured milk and later puke it up. And that is called Milk Challenge. On tumblr and twitter you can find a huge fandom who like them. All over the world you can find ”Janoskinators”. Set this world on fire is their one and only single. They have a really wild and crazy fantasy. Five boys are in Janoskians: James Yammouni, Luke Brooks, Jai Brooks, Beau Brooks and Daniel Sahyounie. Daniel are often called Skip more than his real name. And like you have noticed the Brooks name, the boys are siblings. Jai and Luke are twins and their big brother is Beau. The other boys is not family to each other. But they have been friends since they were babies Melbournians = The people living in Melbourne is often called Melbournians Tumblr & Twitter = Both used to socialize but in different ways - on the internet. Fandom = People who are fans of a certain thing or a (often) famous person.

Attractions in Melbourne In Melbourne you can go and visit the tivoli Luna park, that’s a place for everyone. 2012 was the 100th years of fun-filled adventures. It was the first Luna Park built in Australia, out of four. Only the Luna Park in Melbourne and Sydney are still operating. Melbourne families usually visit the Luna park very often.

Events and festivals

In Melbourne festivals and events are very traditional. From food, film, art festivals to celebrations of writing, design and projections. Melbourne International Comedy Festival is the third-largest International Comedy festival in the world and the largest event in Australia. Barry Humphries and Peter Cook launched the festival n

Ayers Rock Where is this place?

Ayers Rock or Uluru as it also is called is located in central Australia, It lies 335 kilometres south west of the nearest large town, Alice Spring

What can you see and to here?

If you visit Ayers Rock you will be able to live on one of five hotels. You can also see the beauty of the UluruKata Tjuta National Park. There are over 65 different tours around Ayers Rock. You can also ride camels trough the desert dunes.

How do you get here?

Ayers Rock is actual grey due to the high amount of iron that makes the rock red. Another interesting fact about Ayers Rock is that the Aborigine legend tells that Uluru was once a part of the ocean, but after a big battle it rose up and became a symbol of the blood shed in a great battle.

O U TB A C K Life in the outback Usually people in the outback begin the day with a typical lunch consisting of corned beef sandwiches, fresh baked cakes and fruits, that’s what you need to go trough the long day. At the beginning of the day the men gather all the horses in a set of yards. The horse will be with them under the whole day. A day at a cattle farm can be up to 20 hours long. Because sometimes the cattle wont gather so they need to call the police then the police will bring some choppers that will help the drovers to gather the cattle. Sometimes they even use motorbikes to reach cattle where the choppers have no effect. When the day has ended the cattle owners gather at the farm and take a beer then take the traditional ”night-tea” and then go to sleep.

A cattle station is usually very big but it can depend, there is one ranch named ‘Anna Creek Station’ which is the largest cattle station in Australia, it’s about 34 000 square kilometres and it’s way bigger than the largest american ranch (6000 square kilometres). There are many cattle stations in australia, and they are scattered throughout Australia. Wherever you are in the outback you will see a cattle station somewhere.
