English term or phrase: Short form for "Melbourne"
Hello! I'm trying to squeeze a line into some precious little space and am forced to resort to truncating my words.

Is there an official short form for "Melbourne", Australia? (better still, short form for Australia as well, though I should give another 4 Kudoz points in that case. Thanks!)
