TOURIST IN MY OWN TOWN | PT. 1 SUMMER EDITION

WE ALL RUSH TO THE IDEA OF FLYING OVERSEAS FOR A HOLIDAY... BUT, WE HAVE SO MANY UNIQUE & WONDERFUL PLACES IN OUR OWN BACKYARD. SO I'VE DECIDED TO BE A TOURIST IN MY OWN TOWN. COME AT ME MELBOURNE!

BUT FIRST COFFEE...

KETTLE BLACK HAS EVERYTHING THAT MELBOURNE IS ALL ABOUT. GREAT COFFEE, INSTAGRAM-WORTHY FOOD & AMAZING ARCHITECTURE. WITH A CUTE COFFEE CART OUT THE FRONT TO SERVE YOU YOUR CAFFEINE FIX WHILE YOU WAIT FOR A TABLE & KNITTED BLANKET TO DRAPE OVER YOUR LEGS ON THOSE COOLER MORNINGS. THEY HAVE REALLY THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING. OH AND, THE GIANT HOTCAKE IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST!

NOW WHAT'S THE POINT OF BEING A TOURIST IN YOUR OWN TOWN, IF YOU DON'T GET TO EXPERIENCE MELBOURNE'S KICK ASS LUXURY HOTELS!? AM I RIGHT? I OPTED FOR THE LANGHAM AS I HAVE ALWAYS ADMIRED IT'S OLD WORLD CLASSIC CHARM. CUE THE VINTAGE CHAMPAGNE & ROOM SERVICE...

BEFORE YOU EVEN THINK OF TRAVELLING OUTSIDE THE CITY, YOU MUST CHECK OUT THE BOTANIC GARDENS! DINE IN AT THE TERRACE CAFE OR PACK A PICNIC & PICK A SEAT AT YOUR OWN GRASSY TABLE FOR LUNCH IN STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOR FOREVER.

NEXT STOP, THE FITZROY CONSERVATORY. THIS PLACE IS MY NEW FAVOURITE HANG OUT! I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO WITNESS THE PLETHORA OF FLOWERS THAT BLOOM ONLY ONCE A YEAR FOR A FEW WEEKS (FEB-MARCH). TRULY BREATHTAKING!

& THEN OF COURSE, TO THE BEACH!

YOU HAVEN'T COMPLETELY EXPERIENCED MELBOURNE UNLESS YOU HAVE CHECKED OUT SORRENTO. THIS PLACE HAS SO MANY AMAZING BEACHES, RESTAURANTS & EVERY LITTLE TOWN ON THE WAY HAS SOMETHING GREAT TO DISCOVER... GO EXPLORE!
