Melbourne is a small georgian market town in South Derbyshire, England. It is about eight miles south of Derby and two miles from the River Trent. It contains a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants for the tourist. In 1837 a then tiny settlement in Australia was named after William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne, Queen Victoria's first Prime Minister, and thus indirectly takes its name from Melbourne Hall, seat of the Lamb family, and the village.
Also the name Melbourne name derives from "mill on the brook". It was first recorded in Domesday Book (DB 1086 Mileburne = mill stream) as a royal manor.

Melbourne; home, epicentre, ground-zero and dead-end of Australia's 'national' sport, Australian Rules "Football" for twenty odd weeks of the year. (nb. Aussie rules is actually quite popular in Adelaide, Australia's second-largest underground town, and also in Perth, where the only alternative is professional drink-driving.)

Fortunately, Melbourne also has the highest-grade quality heroin available in the free world, rendering even the most soul-sucking, mind numbing AFL season relatively ease to cope with.

Melbourne's heroin quality is second only to the quality of it's water.
Scag-rat 1: "Mate, the footy's back here in Melbourne."

Scag-rat 2: "I know, but it's alright, I just stole this VCR. Let's go see Skinny."

The Capital of Victoria that is actually quite diverse with lots to do. However most of the definitions of Melbourne on Urban Dictionary are by Sydneysiders complaining about Melbourne being a hole and that Melbourne people always try to say how much better Melbourne is then Sydney when the Sydneysiders are doing the exact same thing by trying to say Sydney is better in the example
Sydneysider: Your city is a hole and ugly and you all play GAYFL. Sydney however looks beautiful and is so much better then Melbourne.

Melbournian: And you complain about us saying our city's better, wanker.
