    Waterfront Cities of the World Melbourne Melbourne /ˈmɛlbərn/ is
    the capital and most populous city in the state of Victoria, and the
    second most populous city in Australia.[2] The Melbourne City Centre
    is the hub of the greater metropolitan area and the Census
    statistical division—of which Melbourne is the common name. As of
    June 2011, the greater geographical area had a population of 4.17
    million.[1] Inhabitants of Melbourne are called Melburnians.[3] The
    metropolis is located on the large natural bay known as Port
    Phillip, with the city centre positioned on the estuary of the Yarra
    River (at the northernmost point of the bay).[4] The metropolitan
    area then extends south from the city centre, along the eastern and
    western shorelines of Port Phillip, and expands into the hinterland.
    The city centre is situated in the municipality known as the City of
    Melbourne. The metropolitan area consists of a further 30
    municipalities.[5]Melbourne was founded in 1835 (47 years after the
    European settlement of Australia) by settlers from Launceston in Van
    Diemens Land.[6] It was named by Governor of New South Wales Sir
    Richard Bourke in 1837, in honour of the British Prime Minister of
    the day, William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne.[6] Melbourne was
    officially declared a city by Queen Victoria in 1847.[7] In 1851, it
    became the capital city of the newly created colony of Victoria.[7]
    During the Victorian gold rush of the 1850s, it was transformed into
    one of the worlds largest and wealthiest cities.[8] After the
    federation of Australia in 1901, it served as the interim seat of
    government of the newly created nation of Australia until 1927.[9]
