So who are the Welcome to Melbourne team?

Well something that’s pretty cool is we are basically you, the one time gap year traveller, the international backpacker, the person wanting to make their Australia visit a trip of a lifetime.

Welcome to Melbourne is founded by two Englishmen, Darryl Newby and Adam Ogle. The photo on the left was taken in 2010 as we left the North of England, clueless on what lay ahead.

We picked fruit, drove tractors, slept under the stars, applied sun-cream badly, surfed even worse and most of all laughed a lot as we went on a journey that would end with us living in Melbourne.

We have now spent over SEVEN years in Australia both travelling and working and in that time we have gained invaluable experience, a wealth of knowledge, many contacts and a whole heap of memories, although with old age (life is tough at 29!) some of those have faded slightly.

The majority of those seven years has been spent in Melbourne. We’re definitely biased but we think it’s the best city in Australia and possibly the world. It’s a liberal thinking, art encouraging, music loving, sport fanatical and food obsessed playground that we want to help you explore.

Melbourne is very much about knowing where to go and when. The best bars are on a rooftop out of sight and the best coffee shops down an alley you’d never know exists but by the end of this week with us you’ll know every hot spot in town.

We want you to experience Melbourne like a local but also to ensure everything about your Australia trip is as good as it possibly can be.

Australia is a HUGE country and Melbourne is just a small part of it. You’ll no doubt have many questions and we will be there to help you with EVERYTHING, whether it’s what to wear to an interview, resume writing advice, recommend restaurants here, hostels there and happy hours everywhere- we’ll be your 24/7 real life guide book
