Gay Melbourne

Located on the southern coast of Australia, where it’s the capital of the region of Victoria, Melbourne is a beautiful and adventurous city to visit. It’s known to those who have traveled there for a great many things, but the all-encompassing way to put it is that it’s simply a very fun city. It’s not all about sights or museums, pub-hopping or a national park – it’s simply a multi-faceted destination in one of the most fascinating places on Earth.

Still, it helps to have some specific motivation to go to a place, so here are a few particular reasons why you might want to visit Melbourne one day.

The Coffee Is World Class

Coffee might not seem like the most logical place to start, but this isn’t just any coffee. Back in 2014, Melbourne was actually voted the world’s best place for coffee, beating out more traditional hot spots like Rome and Vienna, not to mention some popular production places such as Colombia. As you might imagine, coffee that good isn’t just tucked away in a few little shops. Rather, it’s spawned a lovely café culture that exists throughout the city, such that one of the most charmed experiences you can have is simply finding a cheerful, trendy venue and sitting down for a hot mug.

Midsumma Carnival, MelbourneThe equivalent of Adelaide’s Picnic in the Park has moved from its old location of Alexandra Gardens to the larger Birrarung Marr precinct. The move will allow Carnival to expand, but according to Midsumma general manager Adam Lowe the key for 2011 is to preserve the same Carnival feel, while keeping the event “financially secure”.

“We’re going to make the move in a financially responsible manner and not bite off more than we can chew,” Lowe told blaze’s sister publication MCV.

In 2011, Carnival will spread out over three levels at Birrarung Marr, which has an upper level consisting of expansive lawn, a middle area linked by a foot bridge and a lower strip running beside the Yarra River. Midsumma begins with Carnival on Sunday January 16 and runs until Sunday February 6.
