What is The Melbourne Diaries?

Melbourne is known for being the most liveable city in the world and we at The Melbourne Diaries want to show you why. With a booming cafe & restaurant industry, classy nightclubs and bars, activities like no other, site seeing near by that feels like you've travelled far and wide, we want to show you ALL of the hidden gems this great city has to offer.
