Meet your guide

Hey there, I’m Rebecca, a Melbourne local excited to show you the best of Melbourne.

After living abroad for 8 years, I’m back home in Melbourne, rediscovering this city that I love and have missed.

I know how overwhelming it can be visiting a new city for the first time or finding new things to do when you’ve been to a place before, so I created M is for Melbourne.

On this site, I curate everything you need to know about visiting Melbourne. Using my knowledge of the city and insider tips, I help travellers just like you easily plan a memorable trip to Australia’s best city.

I also run another blog, Rebecca and the World, exploring outside of Melbourne and Australia to stoke your wanderlust.

A few of my fave things

Must-do in Melbourne: Time your trip to the city with one of our incredible festivals – the International Comedy Festival is a particularly fun one!

Fave place to eat in Melbourne: That’s too hard! Melbourne is an incredible city for eating, it’s unfair to choose only one place…

Most decadent dining experience: Hands-down, the multi-course dinner at Attica

Something I can always eat: The hazelnut gelato from Pidapipó – with Nutella drizzled on top for extra measure

Favourite tipple: I’m a simple gal, a good G&T always goes down well

Favourite view of Melbourne: You can catch a glimpse of the Melbourne city skyline peeking over the tree tops in the Fitzroy Gardens

Best thing to do outside of Melbourne: Road trip the Great Ocean Road or visit the wineries in the Yarra Valley
