"IMPREXXION: MELBOURNE" Top 5 Page for this destination Melbourne by xuessium

Melbourne Travel Guide: 3,515 reviews and 8,044 photos

..."I enjoyed Melbourne. Always have. A city fused with rich unfazed cosmopolitan vibe, and yet comfortable and sure of itself and its root. This was also my adopted home of 2008, having spent the year here. It wasn't always perfect. The public transport system really needs an overhaul...once the politicians stop bickering among themselves. But there is no stopping this love, once the floodgates had been open. I enjoyed Melbourne. Always have. Now I love it even more."...

NOTE: This is likely to be my next most heavy-going VT page. Guess having lived a year here tends to make you want to list everything down. I will try my best to condense the page to prevent a heavy-going burgeoning page. If you feel overwhelmed, just focus on the areas you are looking for. Cheers!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lovely city with a little bit of everything for everyone
  • Cons:The petty crimes if I should raise one
  • In a nutshell:Now, my home away from home....

    Great pics as always, mate! Wish I'd checked out some of the beaches while I was there! Brighton beach looks rather British with the colourful beach huts - it's only the blue sky that gives it away! ;-)

    Fantastic page. Very informative tips. If i ever make it down to Melbourne I'll certainly be checking back. The Great Ocean Road looks spectacular. That would be first on my list.

    Hi Xuess, didn't know that you moved DownUnder! Hope you have a great time there. Hope that some Apostles will still be standing when I will come back. Thanks for your BD wishes. Greetings from the Swiss Alps!
