Melbourne came about in the early 19th century when British settlers colonized the area. During the gold rush of the 1850s, Melbourne was, for a time, one of the largest and wealthiest cities in the entire world. Today, Melbourne is not even close to being the largest or wealthiest city in the world, but it still retains a unique European flavor.
