OVERVIEW
Recently rated yet again the most liveable city in the world, Melbourne will not disappoint. Home to the Australian Tennis Open, you will enjoy every moment in this city. Close to the surfing beaches, Torque and Bells Beach, there is plenty to do when you're not in the hospital. Melbourne has arguably the best coffee in the world, and there are millions of different cafes for you to explore and if you're ever lost Melbournians are very friendly and warm people who will point you in the right direction or the best coffee :)

Come for the medicine and stay for the beautiful city!
