Melbourne is an important city of the Australian industry and finance, one third of the largest foreign companies in Australia is headquartered here. Melbourne is also Australia's largest port. Australia has a tradition of producing automobiles, and in the district of Port Melbourne is Holden's engine plant. GM also has a larger factory in Dandenong where they produce trucks.

The climate in Melbourne is mild, but the city is known for changing weather, and it is said that Melbourne has four seasons in one day. There are seasons of the State of Victoria and Melbourne.
