Melbourne is a city in southeastern Australia. The port city is Australia's second largest with about 4.5 million inhabitants. The city has often been called "the world's most habitable city", which fits in well with the homely and relaxed city.
Melbourne has a very diverse climate and the weather changes are many. The warmest period is between December-February when it can sometimes be extremely hot as winds pull down from the desert in the northwest.
Melbourne is a fantastic city to just stroll around in. The streets are filled with street art, statues, parks and beautiful views. Take a walk on the Southbank Promenade that runs along the Yarra River. A cozy promenade on the south side of the river.
Federation Square, in the heart of the city, is a unique square with futuristic and abstract buildings like no other you have seen before. There are art galleries, restaurants, cafes and rooftop bars. There is life and movement on the streets and artists and street artists of all kinds are crowded here.
Melbourne Zoo, is a modern zoo despite its 100 years on its neck. Incredibly well-kept park that has a large project to save endangered animals. See kangaroos, koalas and other domestic animals, side by side with animals from around the world.
The food in Australia has many influences from British cuisine, but has a larger grill culture. As in many other hot countries, you often cook food outdoors, so then the grill comes in handy. Lamb, sausage or fish are usually grilled, but steaks of kangaroo and emu are also common.
One of the things you may encounter in a menu when visiting the country is Vegemite. This brown spreadable mass is similar at first glance nutella, but is something completely different in taste. Very special in taste and not so often appreciated by tourists as it is done by Australians, who always have this on the breakfast table.
Tennis is a major sport in Australia and in Melbourne the Australian Open is held at Melbourne Park, as one of the four competitions played in the international Grand Slam tournament every year. This is a real folk festival. For two weeks in January, the competition is visited by over half a million spectators.
Another major sporting event to visit in the city is the Australian Grand Prix. It is the opening race of the Formula 1 World Championship every year and is run at Albert Park in central Melbourne.

The Premier League started on 12/9 and initially the stands will be closed. The clubs' arenas are approved for reduced capacity and when fans are welcome in the stands, it is anything from 20% -40% as it looks right now.
How does this affect you as a traveler?
You have probably read in the media that the places that are released will only go to members of the club. This is to some extent true, but we are proud to announce that GO Sport Travel, through long and very good relations with the clubs, will keep our agreements in line with the reduced capacity the clubs will soon present.
With the help of GO Sport Travel AB, you can continue to be one of those who sit in the stands and experience the Premier League live, already in October!
It is planned that each visitor needs to take certain wise measures, such as wearing a mouth guard, etc. In addition, each visitor's name will be printed on the ticket, and subsequent identity checks will take place upon arrival at the arena area.
In short, each visitor must have their ticket registered by the club. The registration is of course handled by GO Sport Travel on behalf of the visitor.
The clubs are very happy to have a high level of security in which visitors they have in place, both for themselves and the visitors. The clubs also hope that the number of less desirable ticket players will decrease. We encourage you to be observant when listening to other actors.
There may be ticket / tour operators who will convey that the above restrictions will not be required, but this is not correct information.
We look forward to announcing soon when we, together with the clubs, open the sale for the upcoming Premier League season.
