Australia is an exciting country with a rich international culture. In the Australian state of Victoria, 45 per cent of people were born overseas, or have a parent who was born overseas. In Melbourne, the capital city of Victoria, you will hear people speak more than 150 different languages. Melbourne was ranked “World’s No. 1 Most Liveable City” by the Economist Intelligence Unit 2012 for the second consecutive year. The August 2012 Report rated Melbourne as the ideal  destination thanks to a widespread availability of goods and services, low personal risk and an effective infrastructure.
