Global Village: Katy lets out a loud roar in Oz

Roar singer Katy Perry has performed in both Melbourne and Sydney on her new tour, but which one did she enjoy the most?

The rivalry between Sydney and Melbourne dates back to the late 19th Century, and the battle for the location of the new federation's national parliament. And there are still lots of people who argue passionately over which city is better.

Top things to see in Sydney include Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Bondi Beach, and Sydney Aquarium. The main attractions in Melbourne, meanwhile, include Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne Zoo, Fitzroy Gardens, Cook's Cottage and the Great Ocean Road.

A good compromise is the Melbourne-to- Sydney coastal drive which takes travellers past endless sandy beaches and world-renowned wineries. It means you get to see both cities and also get to enjoy a fabulous road trip.
