First Month in Melbourne, Australia

Australia, Melbourne Guide (B): First Month in Melbourne, Australia

It’s now been over a month since I first arrived in Melbourne! Time has flown but I’ve completely adjusted to living in this vibrant city. From hostel life with 11 other people in my room to my private space in my apartment, it’s been an electrifying whirlwind. I have an immense amount of gratitude for the people I’ve met and befriended, and the opportunity to spend time with friends from here.

Melbourne is a special city. There is always something to do, an amazing restaurant to check out, or a mind-blowing coffee to drink on any given day. You can eat cuisine from any country in the world. The streets are full of people with different heritages and it’s a haven for traveling backpackers.

While I still have a lot of experiences I want to have while living here, I thought I’d round up the highlights of my first month in a post.

This museum is the perfect rainy day activity in Melbourne. It’s free to visit most of the exhibits, and you can spend hours wandering the different art and artifact displays. The collection has a huge variety – everything from Renaissance to modern art is available to see. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
