Melbourne is located in the southeastern part of Australia on Port Philip, a large natural bay on the estuary of the Yarra River. It has a moderate oceanic climate, and generally rainfall is between 17-40 inches per year. It is subject to variable weather conditions due to its geography. Cold fronts in the spring and summer can bring thunderstorms, gales, hail, and heavy rain, while hot air from the inland desert can bring days of extreme heat.
Melbourne has a prosperous economy, and is the industrial center of Australia, especially automobiles, but also including petrochemicals, aircraft parts, pharmaceuticals, fashion, paper, and food. Its city center is most known for prominent lanes and arcades, lined with shops, cafes, and restaurants.
