The University of Melbourne is a  world-class university in a beautiful city. I would suggest researching your course and major, as what you do in the first year sets the foundation for your major.  As for living, I would highly recommend joining a residential college if possible, it immerses you in a caring community that helps you excel academically and will allow you to make life long friends from all over the world.
