Melbourne also has the largest tram network in the world. Because of this, any shot of Melbourne in Australian media must have a tram in it. No exceptions. Similarly, Melbourne is often presented as cold and wet most of the time, due to it's higher-than-average rainfall (compared with the rest of Australia). The weather is also highly variable in general and is known for completely changing in a very short period of time (from sun to rain and back again in the time it takes [[HostileWeather to walk to the shops, for example]]), leading to the phrase "If you don't like the weather in Melbourne, just wait 5 minutes." Due to this - and the perverse fondness of most Melbournians for their weather (often expressed as 'why would you want to live somewhere the weather's boring?') - most conversations had in Melbourne will include some form of [[TalkAboutTheWeather talking about the weather]].

The yarra River is city's main watercourse. Traditionally, the richer suburbs are on the south/east side of the Yarra, while the poorer ones are on the north/west side, creating a SnobsVersusSlobs divide.
