Consistently ranked as the world's most livable city by The Economist, Melbourne, Australia's second-largest city has a population of almost 4.1 million people from as many as 153 different countries. As a result of the gold rush in the state of Victoria during the 1850's and 60's, Melbourne is the vibrant, cosmopolitan, culinary, financial, and multicultural center of Australia. Often referred to as Australia's culture and sporting capital, Melbourne was the first city in the southern hemisphere to play host to the Olympic Summer Games in 1956 and continues to play host to major international events each year. In more recent years it has been recognized as a UNESCO City of Literature and a major center for street art.
