The City is a vibrant and easily navigated area containing a vast array of cultural, entertainment, commercial, residential, and transportation facilities. There is a large Chinatown area dating back to the 19th century, as well as a smaller “little Greece”, and a maze of charming 19th century alleyways and covered shopping arcades, as well as modern skyscrapers with viewing platforms and beautiful parks and gardens. Across the Yarra River from the City lies the burgeoning Southbank and South Wharf precincts, and to the west one finds Docklands; these areas are essentially extensions of the City and feature similar infrastructure. Southbank, through the Arts Centre, houses the cultural hub of Melbourne, as well as the Crown Casino entertainment precinct, while South Wharf is of historical interest for high-energy physics as the venue for ICHEP 2012 and the joint announcement with CERN of the Higgs discovery. Group excursions can be booked through the Melbourne Visitor Centre, which is a short tram-ride away from the university campus. Possibilities include various city tours, the Yarra Valley wine country, or the famous “penguin parade” and kangaroo feeding on Phillip Island.
