The Melbourne Local

The Melbourne Local was born in early 2012 by Marleena Forward, a filmmaker, writer and travel junkie.

The Melbourne Local is a budget guide focussed on uncovering and dissecting the city's cultural heart, and its reviews are limited to personal recommendations only. You will also find events listings, photography and whatever else The Melbourne Local feels you should know about her hometown (especially the stuff you won't find in the guidebooks).

Melbourne is an expensive city, but it can also be a generous one - if you know where to look.

So to all the backpackers, students, bums, tight-arses, anyone employed in the arts industry - this one's for you.
