Melbourne Girl - Australian Travel Blog


Melbourne Travel Guide

Melbourne Girl is an insider’s travel guide to Melbourne. An Australian travel blog curating the best things to see and experience in Melbourne – what to do, where to stay, what to wear and where to eat.

We enjoy a coffee hit every morning and are always up for an awesome event or festival. We love a long brunch on the weekends, a fabulous Friday night out with friends, and are forever on the hunt for hidden shopping gems, delicious foodie finds and must-see sights in and around the city. We seek to provide insights that only a local can share and strive to immerse all our readers in the perfect Melbournian lifestyle!
