High Teas for Children at The Langham, Melbourne

EricaL

The luxurious five star hotel The Langham, Melbourne, located on Southbank Promenade is perhaps best known for its bespoke Afternoon Teas located in the atmospheric ARIA Lounge on the first floor overlooking its impressive staircase.  That said, it is not only adults that are tempted by mouth-watering Tea and Tiffin’s at Melbourne’s stylish hotel, as The Langham also presents fun child themed ...

Altona Dog Beach

KirtanaB

Past the main beach pier, located on the cusp of Hobson’s Bay – a secluded piece of land has been dormant for a couple of years. Its existence has become widely recognized, and has consequently gained it's title as ‘’Altona Dog Beach’’.   Ideal for dogs that are experiencing large masses of water for the first time, or for those who are a bit scared of it. My Kelpie pup had been intro ...

Supernormal ... Ah McConnell, you've done it again!

@ieatmelbourne

Adding to his mighty fleet of Melbourne restaurant offerings, Andrew McConnell’s Supernormal can be described as Golden Fields reborn and a permanent fixture for last summer’s pop-up Supernormal Canteen. McConnell has further cemented his dominance on the 'Paris end' of Flinders lane with Cumulus Inc and Cumulus Up located on the other side of Exhibition Street. You can’t miss the lu ...

The Vertue of the Coffee

Vi

The Vertue of the Coffee Drink is located in an easily overlooked alleyway next to the petrol station. The addition of a coffee sign to point you in the right direction has certainly aided newcomers in seeking out the perhaps unintentionally elusive cafe - personally I find the initial hunt to be rather exhilarating. Adventure is my type of entree.The interior is very welcoming. Spanning two ...

The Melbourne Experience

Vi

In the digital age there is no shortage of resources for getting to know the ins and outs of a city, much less for the world’s most liveable city. But how many guides can capture our frenetic dedication to the eateries, galleries and pop up events in the nooks and crannies of our streets? Walk Melbourne steps in to highlight the contemporary icons of Melbourne and shed light ...

Pocket

Vi

Located on Melrose street, Pocket is a humble cafe, set up in the small space between the metaphorical parallels of your jacket fabric. The otherwise drab strip is livened up by neat arrays of greenery along the concrete wall and numerous plants in coloured, hand-dipped pots that provide scattered points of vibrance to the cozy domain. As expected, seating is limited with the majority extending ...

Mykids Emporium

Jo Ferguson

Remember how cool the Myer toy department in the city used to be? My kids loved this place when they were little. There was so many fun things for them to interact and play with. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Myer Melbourne used to have an amazing toy department filled with activities such as a giant monopoly board where sounds would play as you stepped onto certain squares, such as train n ...

For many many Melbournians, brunch is the best meal of the day. Well, it certainly is for me and I've been lucky enough to visit over 100 Melbourne eateries (and counting) since arriving six months ago. With so many options to choose from, I'd like to share with you my top picks of where to go for brunch in Melbourne. The Kettle Black - 10/10In my eyes, the best brunch in Melbourne can be fou ...

Haunted Bookshop Tour

monsadventure

Lately I've been surprised to find out about the many walking tours that Melbourne offers. Even more interesting was the idea of a ghost walking tour.I've experienced other ghost tours but they are usually based in one spot, thus I was interested to experience the Melbourne CBD with a different view and background.As we entered the laneway of our meeting spot at the Haunted Bookshop, we saw quite ...

Fort Nepean

monsadventure

Previously, I wrote about a nice trip and bike ride at Point Nepean National Park. This was more about the journey to the very tip of Mornington Peninsula, whereas now I will tell you about what else is waiting for you at the end! Last time, we didn't have the same enthusiasm to explore the end as we were more excited to reach the end and admire the scenery, then ride back. This time, we took a sh ...

Industry Beans

Vi

Industry Beans differs from the ‘average’ Melbournian cafe in that it neither is just a cafe, or just a warehouse, but it is a proud hybrid and the decor makes it work. On arrival one can immediately see the shaded outdoor seating area with tables for small groups. The area is defined by its ebony frame, minimalism that contrasts with the juxtaposing tones of its surrounds. Meanwhile communal ...

Fukuryu Ramen

Vi

Fukuryu Ramen is the latest hotspot to be slurping up bowls of mouth-watering noodle and broth in Melbourne. Despite opening three weeks ago, patrons, streaming in for a taste, stream out with positive reviews, singing praises of their experience. Located in Chinatown, one can be forgiven for having doubtful thoughts as they descend down the laneway and up the concrete stairwell, looking almost li ...
