The city of Melbourne has a unique vibe and it just knows it’s cool. From the cafes and laneways to the famous MCG and Rod Laver Arena it has something for everyone. Known as the cultural centre of Australia I love Melbourne because there is always something interesting happening whether it be an event at Federation square or a strolling down Southbank and people watching. Staying at The Lyall in hip South Yarra is a must and the restaurants in the area are all of great quality with a huge variety of choice. Plan a trip to the Yarra Valley or the Mornington peninsula but always go with a guide otherwise you will miss the secrets that only a local will know.
