An Insider's Guide to the World's Most Lovable City

Welcome to Post Covid Melbourne Australia. The city and surrounds have changed with quite a few businesses and tourist attractions sadly having to close down. Some places have taken the opportunity to upgrade and move forward into a new and exciting time. (Please feel free to contact me and let me know if you come across any information on my website that needs to be updated.)

Melbourne is magic! It's a city that's always changing. Like a kid growing up, Melbourne is growing up too, replacing the old with the new and always conscious of its heritage, it's always fascinating to watch as the city matures.

Melbourne's a unique city in as much as it can sometimes provide the unsuspecting visitor with 4 seasons in one day.  I'm a local, an insider and I love the place so much that I've created this website to provides an intimate look into why Melbourne has been voted as the most lovable city in the world.

Welcome to Family Getaways Melbourne Australia where you will find plenty of things to do and places to explore with your family and friends. City attractions, explore the bay areas close by, free things to do and trips beyond the city boundaries. And remember, when out exploring, wear comfy shoes, perhaps a hat, as the sun gets mighty hot when it does show its face (even in the cooler months). Carry something warm to throw on 'just in case the weather turns bad' and check the weather forecast as you may need to carry an umbrella.
