Secrets of the City - Melbourne

Secrets of the City - Melbourne
Destination(s): Melbourne

Melbourne can be tough for the tourist. Not one to wear its heart on its sleeve, Melbourne gems are for those in the know and the cream is generally reserved for locals. But if you’re not scared of a few dark alleys complete with dumpsters overflowing with unwanted pig parts from neighboring Chinatown, or legging a couple of fire escapes, you will find the real Melbourne; the edible kind. Don’t be fooled by the nonchalant exterior; a lot of effort has gone in to looking so derelict, and it’s an aesthetic that Melbournians pride themselves on. So don your tightest jeans with your vintage garb, and take it to the streets for some hole-in-the-wall bar action and chow that’s so authentic and right, you’ll see why we don’t need beaches. read more about Secrets of the City - Melbourne...
