Melbourne is home to a strong mix of cultures — a fact that shows up in many excellent ethnic restaurants as well as the wide-ranging program at the Melbourne International Arts Festival. In addition to restaurants from multiple cultures, Melbourne has a strong café culture; you can walk down many cobblestone streets and take in the aroma of espresso.
To go with your coffee, try your hand at a quintessential Australian treat — the Lamington. Made of yellow butter cake dipped in chocolate, then coated with coconut, you really can’t go wrong. Look up, and you may see the aerial feats of K@OSMOS.
