  1. I love visiting op-shops and antique suburbs in the outskirts of Melbourne. There’s always something interesting to find & Melbourne is known for their shopping!

  2. I like the factory outlet shops and cafes in the inner city. The best breakfasts I’ve ever had have been while shopping in Melbourne!

  3. My mum’s fridge. My mum is always cooking up a storm. I love visiting her place and eating all her yummy food. I’m always going home 5 kgs heavier though.

  8. The mighty MCG is a great place to go to watch Footy, Cricket or to just do a tour, also the Museum, the Art’s Centre and of course the Library, all full of Melbourne history

  9. Great clip. Love the Any of the walks by the Yarra and the Docklands

  10. When needing to get off the beaten track
    I find the Fitzroy Gardens do not lack,
    Something to stimulate or unwind the senses,
    For weary legs there’s even benches,
    Take your camera and shoot some snaps,
    In the Fitzroy Gardens time does lapse.

  11. Start with a Melbourne brunch in Abbotsford, then mozy over to Bridge Road for a few hours (!) of bargain-shopping. End up at one of the many beer gardens on Church Street for a few cold drinks in the sun then finish off on Chapel Street for dinner… and drinks!

  12. I love browsing the side streets not just the main there is always hidden treasures of the beaten track

  13. Al fresco eateries, one-off shops and cosy litte bars all nestle side-by-side in laneways threading throughout the city. Each arcade has its own individual character and charm.

  14. Last time in Melbourne I rode an electric bike through the city, passed the casino and out to MCG and rob laver tennis centre great sporting venues in an awesome city.

  15. Docklands it offers great night and day activities. By day perfect for shopping adventures and cafés, by night start observation wheel and stunning restaurants

    and once being a party bus driver for dee decker tours….

  17. We come over 5-6 times a year for the amazing football atmosphere and fantastic 1st class stadiums in the world. I love Etihad Stadium for its awesome atmosphere and architectural genius!

  18. Hubby and I love to escape to the city. Last time we wandered the Botanical Gardens, lunched at the Vic Market and enjoyed a great coffee. The Arcades are also a favourite , so many little coffee shops and great for people watching. Our find on this trip was Melbourne Central Library, a very interesting multi cultural experience.

  19. A hidden gem is Glow in the Dark Putt Putt in the always exciting Docklands area, no better way to explore Melbourne then through it’s hidden treasures!

  21. I love melbourne, great food and shops

  22. It has to be the beautiful waters of Docklands, the whole strip of Yarra River is absolutely amazing. Just being there around sunset time, it’s guaranteed you will get to see one of the best views of Melbourne, with the beautiful Melbourne Skyline meeting Yarra river.

  23. I love to visit Glenferrie Road Malvern , there’s just something about this place that feels warm and welcoming. Shopping, eating and just hanging out.

  24. Getting somewhat lost in the Botanical gardens, emerging to the dirt track around The Tan which takes me to an array of quaint neighbourhood cafes along Alexander Avenue for a hearty Melbourne brunch. Then another walk around or inbetween The Tan and then a candlelight picnic dinner!

  25. Getting somewhat lost in the Botanical gardens, emerging to the dirt track around The Tan which takes me to an array of quaint neighbourhood cafes along Alexander Avenue for a hearty Melbourne brunch. Then a walk to discover Melbourne’s history at The Shrine which is a stones throw away!

  29. Eerie Tours Ballarat (1 hr 15mins northwest of Melbourne) is an excellent alternative experience to have if you don’t want to follow the tourist crowds to Sovereign Hill. With stories covering many eras in Ballarat’s history, the awful tales are another view of the beautiful and world renowned town. With ghost stories and history stories all bases are covered.

About

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
