Suburban expansion then intensified, served by new indoor malls beginning with Chadstone Shopping Centre.
Many of the larger suburban mansions from the boom era were also either demolished or subdivided. To counter the trend towards low-density suburban residential growth, the government began a series of controversial public housing projects in the inner city by the Housing Commission of Victoria , which resulted in demolition of many neighbourhoods and a proliferation of high-rise towers.
The Bolte government sought to rapidly accelerate the modernisation of Melbourne. Major road projects including the remodelling of St Kilda Junction , the widening of Hoddle Street and then the extensive Melbourne Transportation Plan changed the face of the city into a car-dominated environment.
Melbourne experienced an economic downturn between and , following the collapse of several local financial institutions. In , the newly elected Kennett government began a campaign to revive the economy with an aggressive development campaign of public works coupled with the promotion of the city as a tourist destination with a focus on major events and sports tourism.
Since the mids, Melbourne has maintained significant population and employment growth. Major inner-city urban renewal has occurred in areas such as Southbank , Port Melbourne , Melbourne Docklands and more recently, South Wharf.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics , Melbourne sustained the highest population increase and economic growth rate of any Australian capital city in the three years ended June Melbourne is in the southeastern part of mainland Australia, within the state of Victoria.
Geologically, it is built on the confluence of Quaternary lava flows to the west, Silurian mudstones to the east, and Holocene sand accumulation to the southeast along Port Phillip.
The southeastern suburbs are situated on the Selwyn fault which transects Mount Martha and Cranbourne.
The city reaches southeast through Dandenong to the growth corridor of Pakenham towards West Gippsland , and southward through the Dandenong Creek valley, the Mornington Peninsula and the city of Frankston taking in the peaks of Olivers Hill , Mount Martha and Arthurs Seat , extending along the shores of Port Phillip as a single conurbation to reach the exclusive suburb of Portsea and Point Nepean.
In the west, it extends along the Maribyrnong River and its tributaries north towards Sunbury and the foothills of the Macedon Ranges , and along the flat volcanic plain country towards Melton in the west, Werribee at the foothills of the You Yangs granite ridge south west of the CBD.
The Little River, and the township of the same name, marks the border between Melbourne and neighbouring Geelong city.
This temperature differential is most pronounced in the spring and summer months and can cause strong cold fronts to form.
These cold fronts can be responsible for varied forms of severe weather from gales to thunderstorms and hail , large temperature drops and heavy rain.
Winters, however, are usually very stable, but rather damp and often cloudy. Relatively narrow streams of heavy showers can often affect the same places usually the eastern suburbs for an extended period, while the rest of Melbourne and surrounds stays dry.
Overall, Melbourne is, owing to the rain shadow of the Otway Ranges , nonetheless drier than average for southern Victoria.
Dewpoint temperatures in the summer range from 9. Melbourne is also prone to isolated convective showers forming when a cold pool crosses the state, especially if there is considerable daytime heating.
These showers are often heavy and can include hail, squalls, and significant drops in temperature, but they often pass through very quickly with a rapid clearing trend to sunny and relatively calm weather and the temperature rising back to what it was before the shower.
This can occur in the space of minutes and can be repeated many times a day, giving Melbourne a reputation for having "four seasons in one day",  a phrase that is part of local popular culture.
The average temperature of the sea ranges from One such issue is the impact of drought on water supply.
In response to attribution of recent climate change , in the City of Melbourne set a target to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by  and Moreland City Council established the Zero Moreland program.

Air quality , by world standards, is classified as good. It was subject to controversy and strict regulations among fears that beaches and marine wildlife could be affected by the disturbance of heavy metals and other industrial sediments.
Up to , cigarette butts enter the storm water runoff every day. More recent office, commercial and public developments in the adjoining districts of Southbank and Docklands have made these areas into extensions of the CBD in all but name.
This, coupled with the popularity of the private automobile after , led to the auto-centric urban structure now present today in the middle and outer suburbs.
Much of metropolitan Melbourne is accordingly characterised by low density sprawl, whilst its inner city areas feature predominantly medium-density, transit-oriented urban forms.
The city centre, Docklands, St. Kilda Road and Southbank areas feature high-density forms. There are also a number of significant state parks just outside Melbourne.
