There are reasons Melbourne is at the top of the Economist Intelligence Unit’s most livable cities list. From footy to food, broad boulevards to back alley bars, CNNGo explores this multicultural haven in January.

Footballer Robert Murphy takes CNNGo to the heart of Australia’s sporting world, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, considered one of the world’s greatest sporting grounds. The MCG is the home of AFL, the birthplace of Test cricket and was the main venue of the 1956 Olympic Games.

Singer Sophia Brous gives an impromptu performance at a convent turned cultural haven, the Abbotsford Convent, before hitting Curtin House, her favourite live venue.

Shane Delia, one of Melbourne’s most innovative chefs, shows CNNGo why Melbourne is known as Australia’s dining capital with a trip to the Queen Victoria Market, and a special behind the scenes look at his popular Maha grill.
