About Melbourne

Next year, between August 24th and August 29th, Melbourne, Australia will serve as host-city for The 27th Congress of the International Pediatric Association. After spending the day in your Congress sessions, we invite you to travel the city and take part in experiences unique to a city based in a country that is both island and continent... All in one!

If You're Into Sports
As a record setter, Melbourne is the only city in the world which has five internationally standardized sporting venues; furthermore, it is the only city on earth to be proclaimed - twice - as "The World's Ultimate Sports City". Accordingly, no sports fanatic would ever decline the unique experience of Aussie Rules Football - the city is home to many professional franchises/teams and is considered to be the sport's spiritual home: the most prestigious competition is the Australian Football League(AFL), culminating in the annual AFL Grand Final - currently the highest attended club championship event in the world!

How About a Bit of Culture?
From cultural festivals to ballet, opera and architecture, Melbourne has a unique mix of classical and modern opportunities for you to enjoy.

Did You Know?
Melbourne is home to eight of Australia's top ten spenders on research and development (R&D). As the country's second largest city, it also holds top universities and privately held corporations interested in finding and/ or investing in the next great breakthrough.

Melbourne's Main Attractions, as voted by its natives, include WaterWorld, Waves Leisure Centre, Melbourne Zoo, Southbank, Queen Victoria Markets, Chinese Museum, Melbourne Museum and the City Museum at Old Treasury and so much more!
