One of the first things you’ll notice when you visit Melbourne is our cultural diversity. We’re proud of our multicultural heritage and we welcome people from all nations.

In fact, almost 50 per cent of Victorians were either born overseas or have at least one parent who was born overseas. We’re a state made up of people from more than 200 countries.
