26 Places That Prove Melbourne Is Truly The Food Capital Of The World
Melbourne is a city of amazing foods where all parts of the world are represented.
Sydney has enough good food places to enjoy just like Melbourne.

But Melbourne will never have any decent surf beaches in close proximity to the city no matter what they do.

Is a lost cause in that department for Melbourne. :wink:

Yes would agree on beaches. Not sure why this is so vital. Many great cities in the world don’t have beaches. And yes, have been to some great places to eat on Sydney with Doyle’s at Rose Bay and the one under the bridge both being very nice. I did find Sydney prices very expensive though for what you get. I just find the culture of eating out in Melbourne a whole different experience ... there’s a vibe to it... even getting breakfast there’s a vibe. That me though and only speaking for me. I did love China town in Sydney though and the best yum Cha I have ever had.

Sydney is just a different place ... with lots of great things too. Yes the beaches are okay (no Gold Coast) and the weather is a tad warmer to enjoy this. Circular quay is really nice and you can’t beat the opera house and bridge and the view of all that. The city I found too busy for me. And the driving and getting around ....crazy. I think it’s like comparing LA and New York .. two different places both with things to offer. Maybe you are either one or the other.

Numbers, arguably yes, but convenience definitely no. Melbourne has numerous precincts that are absolutely great for tourists.
Melbourne is a great city for the returning tourist. Sydney is great for the first time tourist.

Most of Sydney is NOT CLOSE to decent surf beaches. The bit of Sydney that is great, is great, but that is not the same as Sydney the huge metropolitan sprawl. Yes, if I was rich and could afford oceanside Sydney then I'd live there but overall Melbourne is a much more liveable city.

You are talking total bullshit as usual. Even Penrith Sydney's furthest suburb from the beach is only about an hours drive from Bondi.
Which is still much closer than every surfing beach to Melbourne central.

Penrith to Bondi Beach -
65.7 km 1hr 4mins away

Melbourne to Bells Beach -
108 km 1hr & 26min away

Melbourne to Thirteenth Beach -
106.6 km 1hr & 21min away

Melbourne to Raffs Beach
112km 1hr & 26 min away

Do some proper research next time so you don't look so ignorant bro.

I went to Melbourne in summer and was hoping to surf while there. This is how I know all your decent beaches are well over an hour away from the city area.

One reason I thought what a shit place
Melbourne is. Every surf beach is over a 100km away. :lol:

You guys have nothing even remotely close
to Bondi, Manly, Maroubra, Tamarama, Congee, Palm Beach, Bronte, Curl Curl, Clovelly etc.. Near your city.

Factor in real time traffic and the time doubles in Sydney it would be what a 3 4 hr return trip

whilst Melbourne your freeway driving

And if that’s your only plus for living in Sydney! Lol


Australian sporting sponsorship
AFL excess of $50m
A league $30 million plus
ARU $27 million
NRLOL $25 million

Um yep ... if you want a beach and that’s all you want Melbourne isn’t for you. A lot of great cities don’t have a surf beach near by?

Also... one of the most famous surf beaches ...Bells. ... just over an hour way... as all freeway now and by pass Geelong. And before that you have Torquay ... too bloody cold though.... Gold Coast is the place to be if you want all year round good surf ... bloody crowded though.

How about we add better weather, better location, better waterways as well as real beaches.

Melbourne has to substitute itself by making up unimportant things like we are more cultured lol.. We have better art galleries. :lol:

The Yarra river haha.. Is that where Melbourne sewer lines get released?
It is shit brown after all.

And AFL lol.. Is not even recognised as a real sport outside Australia :lol:

I’m a beach guy myself ... love Melbourne city to visit.

If you think arts and culture are made up you’re kinda contributing to the stereotypical image League has don’t you think ?

I would much rather live in Melbourne.
Visit an art gallery in the morning
Dine at a great cafe for lunch.
Cruise along the freeway towards a real surf beach..... Bells, more than a few feet higher.
Bet you cannot do that in Sydney , NFLwelaughat.
Oh but you can play in the tiny ripples at Coogee etc you call waves, school boy surf that we laugh at,.ha ha.

Plenty of AFL on television, real enough for me.
The footy vaults are open I am enjoying some of the great games from the past that have been broadcast and I admit to prefering the cleaner more open styles of play from the past than the excessive flooding and congestion that prevales today.

Yeah travel forever on a hot day to find a decent beach. That's sounds like fun living in Melbourne. :lol:

Meanwhile I just go 5 minutes up the road.

By the way Sydney has thousands of cafes too last time I checked and an art gallery just like Melbourne :wink:
