Journeys through Victoria: Blogger Justin Morris on his hometown Melbourne

We ask Justin Morris, one of Melbourne’s top bloggers to spill the beans on his top tips for travel around his favourite city and beyond…

What is the one place in Melbourne that every visitor should see?

Every visitor should stand on the corner of Flinders Street and Swanston Street – right where Federation Square meets Flinders St Station. This is where you can really experience the heartbeat of Melbourne – where our artistic and cultural flair meets the busy transport hub. And Degraves St with its amazing cafes and restaurants is only a short walk away.

What is your favourite café in Melbourne?

ManchesterPress in Rankins Lane is by far my fave. I discovered this via fellow travel writer Tim Richards last time I was in town. It’s tucked away down an alley off Little Bourke St and is a small, sparsely decorated converted storage space with loads of character and amazing coffee.

When did you last drive the Great Ocean Road?

I last drove the Great Ocean Road in 2008 and loved the incredible vistas over the ocean it provides as you weave your way along it from Torquay to Lorne. Visitors should continue further to see the Twelve Apostles, which won’t be around much longer as more of the towering natural stone pillars standing off the coast are slowly eroding into the sea.
