Melburnians - List of...

The following is a List of notable Melburnians who come from or who have significant associations with Melbourne, Australia:

A person from Melbourne is a Melburnian, or the variant spelling 'Melbournian' is sometimes found but is considered grammatically incorrect because that would make us mel-BORN-ian whereas we are mel-BURN-ian. Melburnite is also used.

A Melburnian is an inhabitant of Melbourne, the capital city of Victoria, Australia.

Wikipedia went onto say: The following were born in Melbourne, only to show John Farnham who we do classify as a Melburnian but he was born in Dagenham Kent (England).
