Unless you're one of about 4 million Melbournians, you probably didn't know that today is officially Melbourne Day.
That's right, Melbourne has its very own special day, every single year.
And to mark the occasion this morning, Lord Mayor Robert Doyle hoisted the city's flag along with some locals dressed up as first settlers.
There's also a big concert planned, with Daddy Cool frontman Ross Wilson headlining a free lunchtime bash at Federation Square.
We all know lots of the good stuff Melbourne has to offer -- the race that stops the nation, the MCG, the NGV and lots and lots of small bars.
But as the festivities kick into gear, we thought it was the perfect time to acknowledge some of the Victorian capital's often overlooked talking points.
Melbourne could have been named 'Batmania'
If things had been different, the first settlement that ultimately became Melbourne could have taken its name not from the caped crusader, but after John Batman, one of the first settlers in the area and a key founder of the city.
Melbourne's tram system is really, really big
The city's famous tramway system is the largest outside Europe and the fourth largest in the world, stretching along 244 kilometres of track and comprising 450 trams.
There are heaps of great sports stadiums in Melbourne
Melbourne's the only city on the planet that has 5 sporting facilities that meet international standards really close to its CBD. There's the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Docklands Stadium, Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena and Olympic Park in Melbourne Park.
Melbourne is as Aussie as Vegemite
Vegemite was invented in Melbourne in 1922 and more than 1 billion jars of Vegemite have been manufactured at its Port Phillip plant. There's even a Melbourne street named after the iconic spread.
Melbourne's the birthplace of movies
The Story of the Kelly Gang opened in Melbourne on Boxing Day 1906 and is thought to be the world's first feature-length narrative movie. The story of the famous bush ranger is said to have "enthralled audiences across the country".
