Melbourne Sister Cities


Melbourne Sister Cities

Melbourne Sister Cities are Osaka, Japan; Tianjin, China; Thessaloniki, Greece; St. Petersburg, Russia; Milan, Italy and Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Melbourne Sister Cities or town twinning is a concept whereby towns or cities in geographically and politically distinct areas are paired with the goal of fostering human contact and cultural links.

Australian Sister Cities Association

As the name denotes, the Australian Sister Cities Association is an association of towns, shires, cities, ports and even States that have a Sister City relationship. It keeps a register of all Australian affiliations, of which it is aware, and encourages their extension.

ASCA also takes an active role in matching cities in Australia with cities, both from overseas and within Australia, seeking a Sister City relationship. ASCA is also the link between an Australian Sister City and the many projects and ideas that have been experienced here and abroad.
