OLA! I'm a student who lives about 10mins from the heart of Melbourne. I love Melbourne but am getting ready do some solid traveling! I study Psychology and Psychophysiology and am always in awe of the complexity of the human body! Amazing! I'm pretty open minded and love meeting new people. I am currently preparing myself for a trip to Europe and can't wait to see what the world has in store for me.
I love my city, and here is a few things I consider MUST do's:
- Moonlight Cinema in the Botanical Gardens: pack a picnic, bring some wine and a picnic rug and see a film in the open air cinema. Don't forget to bring insect repellant (otherwise you will get eaten alive
by mosquitos). Here is the link:
- Visit the Queen Victoria Markets. They have heaps of cheap food and nice things to look at. In summer they also have the night markets.
- Camberwell Markets: great for vintage shopping- go early to find the best gems.
- Brunswick Street in Fitzroy
- Smith Street in Fitzroy
- Chapel Street St Kilda
- Opp shopping in Mornington/Frankston (if you know someone with a car- I might be able to take you down depending on the dates you are
- Degraves Street and Central Lane
- for shoes: Zomp on Collins street- amazing shoes- a little pricey though!
Check out the bar scene in Melboure (particiularly the hidden gems) Melbourne has HEAPS of really cool bars- I
don't know so much about the clubbing scene as I don't go clubbing often.Here is a couple of good bars I would definitely check out:
- Siter Bella's (good example of Melbourne's hidden laneway bars)
- The Rooftop Bar (definitely go here- it's in the heart of the city on top of a roof so you have a great view of Melbourne)
- Kent Street in Fitzroy- very chilled out. Get some delicious Japanese food from the place next door and they will deliver it to the bar for you.
- The Black Pearl in Fitzroy for good cocktails
- The Black cat on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy
- Cherry Bar (Sould nights on Thursday's)
- Hell's Kitchen on Central Lane
- Up late and need somewhere to be super trashy? Look no further than 'Pony bar' in the city.
AND MANY MORE.
- jungle juice (on Central Lane)
- Three Bags Full in Abbotsford (also great breakfast)
- Auction Rooms in North Melbourne
- Proud Mary's in Abbottsford
AND MANY MORE- Just look on the internet. Melbournians love coffee.
-Definitely go out and have a DELICIOUS Melbourne breakfast- my fave places:
- Bagels at Jungle Juice
- Small Block in Carlton ('summer breakfast' is SOOO good)
- Cavallero on Smith Street
- Bird man eating on Gertrude Street in Fitzroy.
- Three Bags full in Abbottsford.
(Melbournians love their breakfasts- here is a whole website dedicated to telling you where the best breakfast places are:
- If you have a car make sure to take a trip down to the Mornington Penisular. In particular I like to take a drive around Red Hill, Mornington, FLINDERS, and Aurthers seat. You can also find nice farmers markets and things here.
I love Music, cooking, good coffee, cheap wine, bike riding in the sunshine, picnics, reading, broken umbrella's in bins on a rainy day, seeing hot air balloons first thing in the morning, opp shopping (it's like gambling), having bear feet, partying until it's day time, rain after a hot day, hot nights, people who eat their food real sneaky on trams, any one who can play harmonica, soul music, being silly, laughing really loud, and drinking tea!
Music, Movies, and Books
Books = Perfume, The beach, High fidelity, and a lot of science books (particularly neuroscience).
Music = at the moment mostly listenign to: Neil Young, Hendrix, Foals, Midlake, Boy and Bear, Beruit, Adam Green, Belle and Sabastion, Bob Dylan, The Kinks, Explosions in the Skye, Massive Attack, The Smiths- among others.
