A couple of weeks ago was my first time EVER in Melbourne. I know right!!! Having lived in Australia for 99% of my life – the fact that I had never been to Melbourne is quite dismal. Nevertheless I managed to make it down there for work. I got to meet the amazing people that work at the Collins St boutique and also catch up with my best friend who is studying texttiles at RMIT. Not to mention…have dinner with Henry Ng of Orri Henrisson fame. However I did not shop (a trip to Melbourne is a must shop…) I was instead enjoying the food, the drinks and the culture of Sydney’s rival city.
If in Melbourne, you must:
-Have cocktails at Manchuria
-Shop at GPO
-Eat burgers at Huxtaburger
-Check out the State Library … it’s absolutely beautiful!!
