Apart from being Australia’s sporting and cultural capital, Melbourne is a stylish, dynamic and cosmopolitan city. It is the capital for the southeastern Australian state of Victoria and located at the head of Port Phillip Bay, on the southeastern coast. The city's center is the modern Federation Square development, along with plazas, bars, and restaurants by the Yarra River. In the Southbank area, the Melbourne Arts Precinct is the site of Arts Centre Melbourne and the National Gallery of Victoria is full of Australian indigenous art. The Museum and the Royal Exhibition Building give a glimpse of city history and culture. The Immigration Museum and the Chinese Museum provide differing cultural perspectives on the local settlement, while Old Melbourne Gaol provides insight into 19th Century prison life. One of the major shopping destinations is Queen Victoria Market, a Victorian-era building with food stalls. The city’s 19th Century "laneways" and shopping arcades are lined with cafes, galleries, and boutiques. The Royal Botanic Gardens situated in riverside shelters 10,000+ plant species, and Yarra Park is home to the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
