Melbourne has been ranked the world's most livable city on numerous occasions.
Melbourne is rated highly in the areas of education, entertainment, healthcare, research and development, tourism and sports and is a leading financial centre in Australia.
It is located on the large natural bay of Port Phillip, with its City Centre situated at the northernmost point of the bay – near to the estuary of the Yarra River. The metropolitan area extends south from the City Centre, along the eastern and western shorelines of Port Phillip, and expands into the hinterlands – toward the Dandenong and Macedon mountain ranges, Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley.
The City Centre is located in the municipality known as the City of Melbourne.
Just because you live in the city centre doesn’t mean that you have to give up the luxury of having parks nearby. In fact, Melbourne has multiple parks scattered across its city centre. Clayton Reserve and Yarra Bend Park— both which allow for dogs to be off-leash. Clayton Reserve is securely fenced off so that you can relax while your dog socialises and runs free with other dogs. Yarra Bend Park, located near the CBD, is one of the largest multi-zoned parks in the city. This natural bushland has an open woodlands that can be explored so your walks with your dog will never become routine or boring.
