Ditch the reviews and social media, instead explore Melbourne with travel publisher Herb Lester’s newest city guide, An Appetite for Melbourne—their first Australian edition.
It’s not the usual city guide, hence the name and why Melbourne was quickly chosen over Sydney. Where else in the world could you enjoy a rooftop movie, burger in one hand and beer in the other?
The A6 beauty quickly unfolds to an A3 scale of Melbourne, handy even in the back pocket of a hipster. You can navigate from Gertrude Street, Abbotsford Convent, and pick up supplies in St. Kilda, all thanks to the directionally marked arrows.
With a summarised description of each listing once you flip it over, the guide will help you sip, savour and shop. Then for all your efforts it makes for great wall art, assuming your Melburnian appetite has been satisfied.
For those that have never ventured to Australia, Lester’s guide to Melbourne will become a reference for curiosity, culture and everything in between.
An Appetite for Melbourne is now available, for a full range of stockists visit herblester.com.
