Melbourne stole my heart… I immediately fell in love with it’s edginess and charm. The city has a very stylist and artsy vibe that made me feel right at home. Imagine taking the best elements of San Francisco, Seattle, and Austin and creating a dynamic and eclectic cosmopolitan city… yup that’s Melbourne folks.
Melbourne is essentially the cultural capital of Australia.
It easily climbed the ranks as one of my favorite cities in the world. It has a vibrant art and live music scene so there is never a dull moment. You can catch your favorite band playing at a random venue on any given night of the week. It is also home to the world’s best coffee hands down! The restaurant, bar, and café scene is definitely next level. To make it simple, I shed a baby-gangsta tear when it was time to leave.
Sydney has the world-class landmarks and tourist attractions but Melbourne has soul. If you are considering travel to Australia, be sure to add Melbourne to your list.
