Multicultural Melbourne: your business guide.

With a growing population comprised of people from all different cultures and backgrounds you, it can be difficult to know how to navigate the diverse landscape of Melbourne, Australia.


However, this multiculturalism is exactly what makes Melbourne such a fantastic city to visit and do business in.

Regularly ranked by the Economist Intelligence Unit’s (EIU) Liveability Index as the most liveable city in the world, Melbourne is known for its diversity, safety, culture, and proud status as a UNESCO City of Literature. The city’s diverse population is partly due to the multiple waves of migration, beginning with European settlers coming in the 1830s, displacing the indigenous Kulin Nation.

In fact, the 2016 Census revealed that approximately 33% of Australians were not born in Australia. As the hub of multicultural events and experiences in the nation, the city is a popular destination for visitors from around the world.
