A Day in Melbourne is a colour-in book for everyone from curious kids to culturally-minded travellers. Featuring approximately 20 line drawings of iconic Melbourne scenes - from the city skyline to street life, busy laneways and beautiful buildings - this picture book provides a snapshot of the city from morning to night, revealing the beauty, local icons and small details of this modern Australian metropolis. It's both a stylish keepsake of the city and the perfect art project to keep colourists engaged while reading vignettes that reveal a small story for each scene.
Melbourne: a city of stories grew out of Melbourne Museumâ€™s permanent exhibition, 'The Melbourne Story'. That makes it a selective history: one based on objects - things that have survived. The idea that objects can give rise to stories comes as no surprise to anyone whoâ€™s ever dug up a shard of old china in their garden, or found an ancient button down the back of a chair.
You will not go hungry in Melbourne, of that we are certain. This energetic city at the southeastern edge of the Australian continent offers food and drink of unmatchable quality and variety. The casual approach of its restaurants, bars and cafes and its spirit of invention ripple across oceans, into kitchens and onto counters around the world. Our guide comprises 40 points of interest, including galleries, markets, shops and parks, among them: Tailored cocktails at The Everleigh The open-air bar and cinema atop 1920s Curtin House Polish sausage and German bratwurst at Queen Victoria Market The unspoiled 1950s charm of Pellegrini's Espresso Bar The Royal Botanic Gardens' sylvan pleasures
