Melbourne is a city of proud locals, and visitors who wish they lived here. Whether by bike or by tram, explore the lively streets and beautiful green spaces; it's no wonder Melbourne has long been considered one of the most liveable cities in the world.

Culture reigns supreme with world-class museums, galleries, street art and a topnotch food and coffee scene. Browse with the Collins Street elite or vintage shop-hop through Collingwood and Prahran, then finish the day with a fine wine on one of the CBD's many rooftop bars.

Melbourne Pocket Precincts is your curated guide to the city's best cultural, shopping, eating and drinking experiences, from the grunge of Fitzroy to the seaside vibes of St Kilda. As well as detailed reviews and maps for major attractions through to hidden gems, this guide includes a selection of field trips encouraging you to venture outside the city to the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley vineyards, the picturesque Mornington Peninsula, the iconic Great Ocean Road and the historic Goldfields.

Slip this guide into your pocket and head off on an adventure, experiencing the coolest places in Melbourne and surrounds, like a local.

Dale Campisi

For the last 15 years or so Dale Campisi has made it his business to get to know Melbourne. At first it was just to find the right bar, cafe or restaurant for this or that occasion, but the city got under his skin.

Dale got his first look into this colourful city during his Australian history studies at university, and went on to uncover some its lesser-known stories as publisher of Arcade Publications' little books.

For a time Dale worked at the Public Record Office, and lead regular tours for Melbourne Central shopping mall and Hidden Secrets Tours. Over the years, Dale has written a number of travel guides to Victoria and Tasmania, including Melbourne: A City of Villages and Hide & Seek Hobart.

Dale does all his exploring with his partner Brady Michaels, whose photography is included in this book. Together Dale and Brady are 'the Gents'.

Brady Michaels

Brady Michaels and Dale Campisi have written several Australian travel guides and history books, including Go Explore Melbourne (2009), The Eating and Drinking Guide to Melbourne (2011), and Melbourne: A City of Villages (2015).

Brady is a creative fellow whose work spans writing, photography, illustration and design, while Dale founded the architecture festival Open House Hobart. Well-known as `The Gents', they founded the popular illustrated Australian history publisher Arcade Publications as well as local goods and souvenir store, Melbournalia.
