There is a little known beach between St Kilda Beach and Middle Park Beach called West Beach Reserve. You can get away from the crowds here. For some reason fewer people walk this way.
It is here that the City of Port Phillip are nurturing some of the indigenous plants of the area . This strip [...]

Melbourne is changing! “Well of course,” I hear you say.
I know this happens all the time but it came as a shock to me when I found a place I knew well was to change.
Yesterday I drove past a corner I used to live near. As I waited at the red traffic light I [...]

St Kilda Night Market up-date.
This popular market was put on hold at the end of last year because of problems with the organizers’ negotiations with the Port Phillip City Council. Things have changed and I found on my return to Melbourne from holiday that this wonderful market was again operating. If you don’t know the [...]

One of my favourite breakfasts in Melbourne is at Hot Honey in Armstrong Street, Middle Park. I eat breakfast there about three or four times a year and I always choose the same thing. I never eat anything else.
Recently we were there again and thought we needed to study the menu and move on. We [...]

Acland Street is a street alive with people and activity. When you’re in Acland Street the vibes are positive and you know that the world is still revolving. Acland Street is a street that brings you alive. That’s how I feel about Acland Street.
My first visit to Acland Street was about 10 years ago. I [...]

Mention the Stokehouse where I live and everyone has an opinion and something to say about it.
The entrance to the Stokehouse.
Its location has to be one of the best in Melbourne. The view from upstairs is spectacular as I discovered during a couple of office Christmas lunches. So good in fact that I wonder sometimes [...]

Summertime in Melbourne is market time and markets spring up all over the place – Pre-Christmas I had great success with some Christmas presents at a market set up in the Elwood School grounds.
This flurry of summer markets led me to forget the markets that just keep-on-keeping-on.
The Esplanade Market in St Kilda has been keeping [...]

The St Kilda Beach Night Market has become an annual event on the St Kilda calendar.
I love night markets. The first one I explored was in Yogyakarta in Indonesia. There was magic in the air with the music and colours but I felt uneasy being in such a crowded place with so many dark corners. [...]

Weekend biking around the Eastern Bays is a Melbourne tradition. On Saturday and Sunday mornings hordes of bikers, in the very best lycra and helmets, form packs and peddle furiously along Beach Road to Marine Parade in St Kilda and then on to Port Melbourne.
Those of us who drive have to keep a keen eye [...]
