Ever since landing in Melbourne we’ve wanted to visit the popular ice-cream parlour ‘N2 Extreme Gelato‘. Located in the super cool suburb of Fitzroy (think Shoreditch), we finally got the opportunity to visit last week.  Their ice-cream is made using liquid nitrogen which makes it have an incredibly smooth texture. It also means that they […]

Last weekend Stew and I treated ourselves to brunch at a local cafe called Found. It’s located on Chapel Street in a sweet alleyway filled with clothing and accessory stalls.

Last Saturday the city centre of Melbourne closed from 7pm until 7am on Sunday morning. Instead of lots of traffic on Melbourne’s busiest evening, the streets were full of people. Thousands of people in fact, quite possibly the entire population of the city and it’s suburbs! The event was called White Night where the city […]
