MELBOURNE HIGH FIVE
Take trams, not taxis. Melbourne’s public transport system is arguably the best in the country.
Never leave your hotel without an umbrella. Melbourne really does have four seasons in one day.
Drink and shop at your peril. There is a wine bar next to almost every boutique in Melbourne, which can lead to regrettable purchases.
Take a daytrip to High Street in Armadale and Hawksburn Village. Both have excellent fashion boutiques and homewares stores.
If you’re in Melbourne in February or September, book tickets to the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival or Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, which stage runway shows for the public. www.lmff.com.au; www.msfw.com.au. Georgina Safe
