Travel tips for Melbourne and Victoria

If you are planning a trip to Melbourne and want suggestions on all the best places to visit and things to see and do, this guide is for you!

I’ve been living in Melbourne for the past 7-years and grew up travelling here regularly to see family. While I didn’t love Melbourne when I was growing it, after moving here for University I’ve come to love all its charms and quirks. Trust me, there’s a reason why I always come home to Melbourne after my travels!

To get to know the city a little better I started @AMelbourneMinute on Instagram. Inspired both by my second favourite city (sorry New York!) and a popular saying Melbourne’s have: “I’ll meet you under the [Flinders Street Station] clocks”.
