With a population of 3.8 million inhabitants Melbourne is the second largest city in Australia after Sydney. Melbourne is located in a bay along the coast of southern Australia on the lower reaches of the Yarra River and is the capital of the state of Victoria. The area in and around Melbourne has been inhabited for 30000-40000 years. The first European settlement was established in 1803 on Sulllivan bay, but was quickly abandoned and the area would be only settled again by Europeans in 1835. Nowadays Melbourne has Australia's busiest seaport and much of Australia's automotive industry is located here. Melbourne is also a major technology hub, with an information and communications industry employing over 60000 people. Melbournians claim it's Australia's most livable city.
