I wholly agree with this statement. :shifty:

If you get the chance make your way down to Adelaide mate.

This thread is incredibly misleading. New Zealand? Adelaide? Please he's trying to have a holiday, not be bored to half death.



In terms of Melbourne, food and shopping, that's what happens there. And art galleries. Nightspots are.....probably the best in Australia but that actually doesn't say that much. One thing about Melbourne is that you can generally avoid the clubs with lines three times around the block.

Other highlights includes the Melbourne Cup and the Comedy Festival (one of the largest in the world). But I'm pretty sure you're not in time to see that.



Things not to waste time on: organized tours of the city
seeing the god damn penguins


In terms of cuisine the general rule of thumb is to eat Greek and Italian, which is superb in Melbourne.


Wish I could help you more, but I'm a Sydney-sider. And it's really not like either city is better. I mean Sydney is Rome to Melbourne's Florence. Sydney is west coast America, Melbourne is western Mediterranean Europe. It's just two completely different styles. Are you dropping by Sydney by any chance?

In honour of it being ANZAC day today, I will refrain from making a comeback... for now.

Well I guess it's the argument that....the lows of Sydney and Melbourne are much much worse.

And the highs of Sydney and Melbourne are a lot higher.


Where as with NZ, you really can't go that wrong. It's a beautiful country.....with skiing. But if you want to run into a new and interesting shopping strip or art gallery around every corner, or happen to catch bands, artists and stage shows from abroad, then there's really not much luck there.

Same with Adelaide bar the skiing. Actually Adelaide is interesting, Adelaide seems to just have a massive university population, so that makes it interesting, the people I mean. But this may be just because Adelaide has a small population so by contrast.....
