STA Travel Blog

Win a Trip for Two to Melbourne!

It’s early days, but if I could steer the STA Travel Blog into emulating one city, it would be Melbourne. Why? Because it’s unpretentious from the ground up, and friendly on the eye. It’s made up of optimistic people, and fuelled by a cocktail of offbeat, functional, and fresh thinking.

I don’t want to use the word ‘cool’; but I just did, because let’s face it: Melbourne. Is. Cool.

So I’d like to send you and a friend to Melbourne, to experience life in one of my favourite cities in the world. Take a look for yourself.

Hosier Lane, Melbourne

Here’s how to enter: let me know in the comments which shot of Melbourne or the surrounding area stands out to you from the following Pummelvision clip, and why, and we’ll randomly pluck a winner right out of the comment thread.

The winner will recieve return flights for two people to Melbourne, plus:

Give your eyes a pat on the back, they’ve just been pummelled by Melbourne and the surrounding area’s best-loved spots, including a few hidden secrets.

I can sense that you’re primed to try and win that trip to Melbourne, for you and a friend.

Don’t forget to include your email address in the appropriate field (it won’t be published, or used for any marketing), so that we can contact you if you win. If you don’t leave a valid email address (or leave it blank) we cannot contact you, so we’ll regretfully have to do a redraw. I’ll feel pretty bad for you if this happens, but you’ve been warned.

But don’t worry, we will never use this email address for anything other than contacting you if you win (if you’re sad about that, you should sign up to our newsletter).

So roll the clip again, spot your favourite shot, and slam it in the comments below with your reasons why, and get the banter rolling. Too easy! (That’s Melburnian for “Nice one!”)

[Competition closes 14 December! Roll the Terms & Conditions.]

    The shot of the couple walking along the beach by the Twelve Apostles looks great. I wish we could do the same.

      I love the shots of graffiti alley, the little penguins and st kilda… Melbourne is the best city in Australia by far

      The ariel view of that gorgeous coastline-turquoise waters caught my eye everytime!! My friend’s best friend lives there would be amazing to take her to see her!

      The Koala beer sat in the tree on his own. What a great day he must be having, hanging out in a tree in Melbourne – his only job to be fluffy and cute! That is my ultimate goal in life!

        A Koala is not a bear!!! It is closer to a Kangaroo than to a bear!!!!

    • Emma Shield

      WOW! I can’t choose just one favourite shot! I love everything about Melbourne, but if was pushed to choose I would have to say the Great Ocean Road, koalas, penguins, the trams, the train station, artwork, VW campervan (the only way to travel!), the beach…..the whole vibrant vibe…..so pretty much everything! :-)

    • Chloe Dorlikar

      For some reason, the plump (well at least I think he was plump) man in the navy, patterned knitted jumper stood out for me. Seems random, when there were pictures of Aussie animals, Beaches and street art, but I heard Melbourne is a really creative, cultured place, so maybe that’s why! I’m guessing the Melbourne Sheila’s and Shane’s dress pretty damn COOL! Ha!

      Awesome vid yes, already on list of places must visit one day in my lifetime. Am however curious and slightly worried about the guy who seems to be having his mug shot taken, number 12347 I think. Intriguing. Staff or friend I wonder…still, he seems to be smiling so guess he’s either still drunk or enjoying himself in some other ways…x

      ♥ the two photos of the Koala Bears & then the Kangaroo~!! I’ve always wanted to see and go up close to a Koala Bear and to Baby Kangaroos ever since I was little when my grandparents got me a little clip on Koala Bear souvenir & a kangaroo cuddly toy from when she went to Australia~ :) Would love to have the chance to go there with my boyfriend and experience what they did~ ^^

      the photo of the city centre with the orange sun umbrellas and the old building amongst the sky scrapers in the background – captures Melbourne’s history and culture all in one shot. brilliant.

      2192 days ago
    • Claire Hughes

      The image that sticks out to me from the array of fantastic photography! is the bright yellow hot air ballon floating across a blue sky and crop fields although the wildlife and art are also standout imagery! :)

      Wow..all the pictures are amazing but I love all the coastal pics and the hot air balloon pic…It would be a dream come true to visit melbourne and especially fraser island..fingers crossed!!!

      I’ve never been to Australia, it’s a lifelong dream to go there. The aerial shot of the coastline really blew me away.

      The clown face, reminds me of Australias quirky style and a programme called ’round the twist’ which i used to watch and made me love the idea of Australia!

      For me the cup of coffee says it all about Melbourne – cafe culture and everything that goes with it. Forget your commercial coffee house chains; Melbourne is all about the independent cafe, off-beat, innovative, quirky, artistic and original – that’s how I see the cafe culture here – and that’s how I see Melbourne!

    • It’s those bright red ferraris and karl kennedy that caught my eye… such a big part of me growing up – formula 1 in one of the most amazing settings for a race and the guy who epitomises australia for a lot of us brits, alan fletcher aka dr karl.

      It has to be the motorbike parked amidst the vast landscape; beautiful cliffs, crash waves, sun and blue skies…perfect. If nothing speaks any more of the the adventure and freedom of Australia, it is this picture. Breathtaking.

      Oh wow, that video was a good sell. The hot air balloon is probably what stood out most for me. There’s something so Wizard of Oz about them, which is very fitting.

      The shot of the people walking along the tree lined avenue with Melbourne in the backdrop, I want to go there and be a part of the city – pause to soak up the atmosphere before exploring the rest of Melbourne and all the other amazing sites captured in the montage!

      I like the koalas constantly popping up. Also the giant painted face really stuck out because it was really colourful and slightly scary.

      The Rainbow Lorikeet (blue red green bird)..Reminds me of my Aunt in Australia. She and her son from Melbourne visited me this year for the first time. One of them, my Aunt wanted to hear the UK dawn chorus which she’d missed since she emigrated in the 1960s. I bought her it on CD. She returned the favour by sending a DVD of Australian birds. The birds are so beautiful and interesting..they sum up Australia for me. I’ve never been to Australia so a trip to Melbourne would allow me to see these birds first hand and also have the reunion of a lifetime with my family.

    • Apple Wilfred

      For me, the shot of the street-art filled alley ways. They give me an overwhelming sense of adventure, like being Alice in Wonderland. Running through color filled mazes to reach secret squirrel venues, fantastic coffee and the heart of all things life should be, amazing.

      2179 days ago
    • jenny gallagher

      Wow,every shot makes you feel something different! To pick one would be too hard..Each shot made me just wanna jump right in there and be part of it.The bright lights,the scenery,the people,all AMAZING!! My dream is to go to Melbourne.. an hopefully my dream will come true..

      2179 days ago
    • Luke Lovatt

      Melbourne, always ranked highly in the worlds most liveable cities, and I believe no.1 this year – I’m not surprised looking at these shots – have a lot of friends over there who i’d love to visit. For me, the surrounding area of Melbourne looks amazing and the great ocean road is something i’ve always wanted to do, but shot wise the city itself- with flinders street and fed square – what a lively vibrant place with lots going on in an amazing environment.

      2179 days ago

      The few shots of the river at night time being lit up by the lights of the city. Not bad.

    • Gemma Tighe

      WoW! My boyfriend has just moved to Melbourne and its so difficult to picture the city so that pummel was AMAZING! I guess the most interesting pics for me were of the people as hopefully, with a bit of STA luck, sometime next year I’ll be joining them. They all look so happy and full of life, even the guy whose been arrested! A city that can do that to you has gotta be worth a try ;-)

      The kangaroo looking straight into the camera, still within all the rapid movements of the rest of the shots, enchanted me..imagine sharing this feeling with your loved one..in one of the most beautiful cities in the whole world..

    • f. prescott

      the city i was born in and now live 10 years and thousands of miles from…so many memories…riding the night trams, cafes that pop out of a hole in the wall, arresting street art, soft sandy beaches, the expanse of space and sky, so familiar yet so ‘other’, the Bourke st mall sculpture-i remember when he and his friends arrived!
      I want to go home!!!!!

    My Favorite shot is the Parma + Pot for $12, Really sums up Victoria and Melbourne, I could actually imagine myself walking down Lygon Street, Maybe grabbing a coffee and looking for somewhere to eat and casually drifting into the city, and going for a few relaxing pots of Carlton Draguht….mmmmm

    2194 days ago
  5. Jamie Bale

    My favourite shot is of the Great ocean Road (at least that is what i think it would look like… I have never been!) It is my favourite because it looks like how i wish the UK would look! The cutting cliffs with clear blue water and then just vast expanses of land that is still unspoiled! It looks incredible!

    2194 days ago
  6. Rachel Wolstenholme

    Definately the picture of the penguins running up the beach! Love it!

    Koala Bear – Would love to see them live at Healesvile Sanctuary near Melbourne along with other native wildlife of Australia.

    Just as David said the Grand Prix season starts in Melbourne and so does the first of the 4 grand slams: the Australian Open. Melbourne surely is doing something right to get all those people looking at it for such big events!

    2194 days ago
  14. Freddie Johnson

    My favourite shot is of the landscape image of Melbourne at night from alongside the Yarra river. It looks like beautiful and I’ve heard the nightlife is fantastic!

  15. Roser

    The field of kangaroos- so much more fun than cows!

    2194 days ago
  16. Mathew Clapham

    My favourite shot was the night shot about 6 seconds in with the Ferris wheel on the right. I love cities at night and think they look much prettier when they are all lit up. I’m sure Melbourne would be amazing all lit up!

    2194 days ago
  17. Kathryn Todhunter

    The stunning ariel view of the coastline!

    The nightlife reflecting on the water! Amazing have always wanted to go! :-)

    2194 days ago
  19. Matthew Wedlake

    My favourite picture is the one of the 4×4 driving along a costal road, with the backdrop of waves breaking on to the shore. Being a surfer myself, I would love to check that place out, it’s probably a bit warmer than surfing in Cornwall, England, too!

    2194 days ago
  20. Amber Ormesher

    For me, it would definitely be the two people sat on the mountain in the clouds. It just sums up my perfect idea of an adventure….total tranquility and feeling (and being…literally!) on top of the world :) Australia has always been #1 on my adventure travel list, and my life won’t be complete until I get a picture just like that.

  23. beccy stanley

    The one that stood out to me was the buildings lit up in Melbourne by the river at night. It takes me there in an instant, imagining the sounds, smells and atmosphere that would be around me whilst looking at that first hand would be absolutely incredible. I read a book called The Slap recently, which was brilliant and set in Melbourne and the picture also reminds me of the girlie characters and their fab nights out in the city…I want one!

    2194 days ago
  24. Georgie Thompson

    The shot of the beach with seagulls and a surfer in the background. Just sums up how beautiful Melbourne really is. Would give anything to go back there!

    The football because I love the buzz of the AFL. Go Collingwood haha!!

    2194 days ago
  26. Hollie Watson

    The man drinking coffee…not because I think that’s the best thing you can do in Melbourne, but because I’m a great believer that some of the best people you meet, and sights you see when travelling happen unexpectedly when you’re grabbing a coffee!

    2194 days ago
  27. Lindsey Best

    The sunset shown at around 30seoncds over the water. Nothing in the world is more beautiful than a stunning sunset. And the water is so tranquil

  33. Karen Higgins

    Loved all the snap shots :O) With them all together it just looks amazing. Quite a few nice ones but my favourite has to be the koala bear. They are so cute and are a recognised symbol of Australia would also love to get a cuddle from one, one day x

    2194 days ago
  34. Rebecca Cockburn

    The stunning picture of the rock formations leading towards a beautifully turquoise sea, stretching towards the horizon. Want to plunge in right this second.

  35. William Gates

    How could it be anything other than Karl Kennedy. The man IS Melbourne! Yea the Great Ocean Road looks stunning, the penguins look cute and the suburbs look fun but come on – seeing Karl and the other Neighbours crew would surely be the highlight of any trip to Melbourne.

    2194 days ago
  36. Emily Beech

    The shot of the bay with the winding coastal road and the car. Love driving and finding gorgeous unspoilt spots like that…And getting a chance to swim in the sea without freezing to death sounds fabulous!

    2194 days ago
  37. Rhiannon Jeffreys

    The great shot of the surf board used for a cafe menu. Coffee, salads, juices, smoothies – perfect example of chilled out Melbourne life.

    Although the beach shot looks amazing what sticks out with me is the shots of the street art. Not something I would have associated with Australia but would love to investigate it further!

    The shots of the Koala’s, they are the most amazing and unique animals and there numbers are decreasing year by year. SAVE THE KOALA’S BEFORE IT’S TO LATE!

    2194 days ago
  43. Huai Khor

    My favourtie shot would be the one with the sun peeking through the cloud, gently illuminating the cliffs of the Great Ocean Road. Perfect sunny day, beautiful sea, breathtaking scenery. It’s perfect. Just fresh being voted part of the Australian National Heritage List, it is definitely a must-see sight of Melboutne.

    2194 days ago
  44. Stewart Allan

    The images in this clip moved at such a fast pace I found it difficult to concentrate without having an epileptic seizure. I did catch a brief glimpse of Karl Kennedy from Neighbours, I can’t believe no one else has left a comment about him. The man’s a living legend. I’d high five him if I had the chance to meet him. I’d also want to hug a koala bear and see those penguins and the other wildlife for real… Not to mention travelling the length and breadth of the city on a motor bike, stopping off to chill on those beautiful beaches and having as much fun as possible without getting arrested like the chap at 0.16.. I’m puzzled as to why a convicted felon appeared in the video :) I’d take my best pal along and we’d shoot our own version of this for you all to see… Including high-fiving Karl and hugging a koala bear, riding a motor bike in nothing but underpants and a cork hat, it would definitely be entertaining to watch…

    THe classic motorbikes. This land is what biking was invented for!

    2194 days ago
  47. The picture of the couple sat on the peak of the cliff/mountain overlooking the clouds.
    Why? Because it would be heaven. I could sit there for hours. And imagine the view through the clouds, that would be something I would love to have the opportunity to do, especially with the person I would take.

    2194 days ago
  48. Toria

    My favourite picture is the one of the two people sitting on the edge of the mountain looking over the cloud inversion. I’ve only ever climbed mountains in the UK and have only seen a few cloud inversions so far, so those people are very lucky to be able to experience such a wonderful sight whilst in Australia! It looks so peaceful and to be able to share that experience with someone else would be the icing on the cake!

    2194 days ago
  49. Katherine Bolt

    I love the shot of Melbourne’s Skyline – I think it has one of the best skylines in the world and it’s just the start – it gets even better as you get closer and further in ;-) !

    The shot of the echidna. They are the absolute best thing about Australia, and I reckon out of all the Australian animals represents Melbourne the best; quirky, sleek and friendly.

  58. For me, it’s definitely the shot of the couple on the rocks, surrounded by mist, at 27 seconds. It looks completely amazing and out of this world. I’ve always dreamt about going to Australia and fulfilling that dream, sitting with my boyfriend on that rock in the mist, would be completely amazing.

    The Formula one car which would be such an awesome thrill to see, seeing just one in England wasnt enough and the persons feet in the sand.

    Surfers on the beach – I know this sounds a bit sad but ever since I watched Home and Away and saw the beach and surfers I have dreamed of surfing the real thing and not the web!
    There is so much to see and do that an hours surf in the morning to wake me up would make the day a Gud Day!

    Or… You know what? The kangaroos. Or, when I think of it, koalas. Or, the people? The epicness? Or the awesomeness? Hmmm, might be the weather? Or something as “simple” as the amazing walls. Or, I don’t know. I guess all of it makes me wanna go, not just one thing. It would be the trip of a lifetime!

    surrounded by nine to five madness, earning to travel and explore. to drink in the mad moments, to absorb new people and the utter contentment of serenity and calm. the clip of the boats on the still water shadowed discretely by the skyline of melbourne blanketed by a sleepy sunset sky. pure beauty, the essence of australia.

    my favourite photo is the one of Federation Square as it was one of the first places i visited when arriving in the Australia after years of dreaming about going there..it reminds me of all the good times and laughs i had there especially during the comedy festival. I love the way the square and flinders street station close by new and old side by side…plus the fact that I thought it was called |Unification square for a long time. and no one had any idea what i was talking about….!!

    the kangaroo originated in australia. therefore the clip where two kangaroos journey across the australian plains with the mountains in the background is perfect to me. the kangaroo is loved, is strong and always energetic, an iconic symbol for australians.

    For me it was 2 picture shot one with a lady in a Hammock Chair relaxing near the beach, I would love to sit in that place and take in the view of the beach.

    My favourite shot is the one with the tennis court on show. It appears to be a mixed doubles match in process in the Australian Open, which is held in Melbourne every year. The one thing I wish to do before I die is to attend each of the four tennis grand slams in the world, and visiting Melbourne would definitely a good place to start with this goal, as the only grand slam tournament in the southern hemisphere can be tricky to get to!

  139. Nathan Dangerfield

    The picture of the tram with The Arts Centre spire in the background. Love the fact that the main mode of public transport is the tram, you can travel around the city on it and see all the great stuff like The Arts Centre on your way. Way better than the bus or the underground.

  141. Melissa Clark

    For me it has to be the picture of the Luna Park face in St Kilda. It looks amazing at night time and is an iconic part of Melbourne. I couldn’t have enjoyed my time in Melboure any more and would love a chance to go back there. I love this place!

    2193 days ago
  142. Tanya Scanlon

    For me it has to be the shot of the kangaroos! No other animal can sum up the spirit of Australia quite like its national emblem. I’d love the chance to go and see them for myself if I managed to win the prize.

  143. I need a hero!! And I spied him around 0:13. Please send me to Melbourne so I can find my Karl and give him the gift of 0:24 (a koala bear) on 0:29 (a boat). Thank you :) you’re a STA(R) x

  154. Costi

    Definitely the picture of the Melbourne skyline at night.

    The city is more than just beautiful and colorfully lit up: its full of promises of exotic adventures and flat out awesomeness.

    It’s a whole new world to explore!
    …fingers crossed. x

    2192 days ago
  155. The shot that stands out for me in the clip is the one of the river by night with the tall buildings either side because it is a beautiful shot (the lights reflected in the river etc.), because I like cities by night and because I love the contrast between the impressive look of the tall buildings and the intimate look of the white buildings at the foot of the lit up tower on the left.

    Its got to be that pic of Aussie Rules footy.
    I understand that Melbourne is the spiritual home of this uniquely Australian game .. and the locals are totally mad about it!!
    Certainly I’d love to experience the bone-crunching thrills of this game that seemingly has no rules – seated beside 90,000 screaming Aussie Rules fans in the hallowed Melbourne Cricket Ground.

    2192 days ago
  175. Michael Burns

    Music, beaches, sun and, of course, Koalas… there’s too many to choose from. I’m afraid they’re all amazing! If I had to choose one inparticular, though, it’d be 00:13: the shot which encompasses the city, the beach and the emerald sea. It looks like a superb place to visit.

    What stands out for me in the short clip are the pics of the Koala Bears – why – because they are repeated several times from different perspectives. Also, the bright colours, be they from parrots, sunsets, people, buildings, art – repetition in different forms throughout the clip.

    The pic with a bunch of friends hanging out on the grass looking over that awesome beach (probably drinking cold beers). For me this epitomises my perception of Australia, and Melbourne in particular – chilled out, sociable, laid back and fun. Good times

    I would love to roam in the lush maze of culture that is the elaborately beautiful Melbourne – not as the friendly ghost I am now, but rather in the living flesh, I can see myself strolling down the beachfront, ogling the street art all the while holding hands with my best friend in the whole world – my soul mate Graeme :-) Bring on the dream make it real!! Yeah baby.

    Definitley the Great Ocean Road one – this would make my dream come true. I would absolutely love to do it – my boyfriend was an Aussie and he always wanted to hire a camper van and travel Aus and do things such as the GOR but never got around to doing it.
    I’d love to be able to do it in his memory.

    Parma and pot – $12. An Aussie mate of mine I met travelling a few years ago keeps telling me to get to Melbourne so we can head to the pub for this local speciality. Not got the cash to get there myself, so would be more than grateful if you could help me out! Get a catch up, a good feed and a few pints, job done!

    The picture of the maze, I think everyone loses their way in life at some point and needs a helping hand to see the end of the tunnel, like the people in the middle of the maze I’m lost, in need of a signpost to get out of the confusion and take a change of direction. Winning a flight to Melbourne could be the gentle push on the right direction.

    The shot of Federation Square and Flinders Street Station. It is such a iconic area in Melbourne city centre which genuinelly eminates all that is great about Melbourne: the buzz, the hype, mixed with the laid back nature of this city. It is beautiful at night when it is lit up also, and the lights from the surorunding buildings dance in the background. And for anyone who has been here, this shot will bring back memories of great times here and in close-by surrounding areas of the city.

    Isabell’s right, it’s got to be the coffee and cafe culture. I wish the Brits would adopt Melbourne’s love of great coffee, getting a good cup on this side of the world is a tough ask. In Melbourne you’d have to look very hard to find a bad one. Please fuel my caffeine addiction and pick me!

    So hard to pick just one!!! The excitement of the fireworks in the clear night’s sky – the cute and cuddly Koala’s and Wombats which I dream of seeing for real, the stunningly aesthetic skyline of the city, the gorgeous turquoise seas and the intricate graffiti indicating a city full of interesting and eclectic people!

Shes having a baby so I’d love to go back and see some more places and visit her!

    The view from the seat of the blue Volkswagen Splitty Van is my ideal view of Melbourne; we have owned Bay Vans, Wedge Vans, Beetles, but have never driven a Splitty. I think the coolest way of viewing the Cool City of Melbourne would be from the coolest, most iconic vehicle in history – the VW van!

    Lovely pic of Bells beach (Point Break) which is unbelievably only an hour away from Melbourne city centre. I remember seeing a row of city workers getting out of their cars on a Friday evening and changing out of 3-piece suits in to wetsuits (with surfboards in the boot of each car!)

    I miss you Melbourne…

  319. I have to give *one* favourite?? There are so many great shots. I especially like the dirty urban ones, the curving metal structure that I am assuming is a bridge and the ones of graffiti. I think I have finally selected three favourites though (1) the graffiti covered alleyway that leads to nowhere (perhaps); (2) the knobbly bridge with the night cityscape in the distance (because it looks at the world from a perspective that most people don’t); and (3) the mainly dark one with a doorway in the distance (because I have an obsession with doorways). The doorway could’ve been anywhere and you can’t see what’s at the end so you have no idea, really, where it is. I love this kind of thing, where you actually have to be there to satisfy your curiosity, and if you were the one that took the picture, you have the chance to walk down that path and see what is at the end. And if you absolutely *have* to have just one favourite, I’ll go for my number two. Whoever took that photo shows me the world from my own perspective, plus which I love the textures, the colours, the shapes and the mood. These were great. Thanks for sharing.

    By far the Koalas, they are in their natural habitat and native country, beats any zoo in the UK. Plus when Koalas are born they are the size of a Jelly Bean, can’t get cuter than that!

    Flinders Street station – Standout old colour building in the city. Its a central place to enjoy the city on the banks of the river or to take a tram/train/bus or walk to any of Melbournes landmarks! Makes the city feel like a warm and exciting place!

    Got to be the shot of the ‘speccie’ and about 7 guys going up for the ball in an AFL match. I am amazed that a sport can so completely take over one nation and be barely noticed in the rest of the world – real Aussie dedication!

  339. Cristian

    The Formula One shots…they definitely stick out of all the other shots as they are completely different topicwise. Most of the others are landscape/ animals/ city snapshots, so the red racing car sticks out. And it was the first shot I noticed that it appears twice.

    The koala bear in the tree. When I was a child a relative sent a picture of a koala bear in a tree – but it was a puzzle. Very diffiuclt to find. I spent days and days trying to find it – before my mother told me the answer. My love and interest in koala bears started then. I find them fascinating. I would love to see them in the wild. For my 21st birthday, an Aunt sent me a cheque and a cuddly koala bear. So many memories! In fact, I would love to see any animal in the wild. I am an animal person. If my husband came with me, he would want to see the architecture and sports! We both have a burning ambition to go to Australia on eday, but so far we have sadly never managed it. Australia has so much for so many – magical country

    Those photos are gorgeous. I love Melbourne, it’s a great city with so many stunning attractions! The variety of things to do there is mindblowing. However, if I had to pick my favourite shot, regarding Melbourne, then it would have to be either the little Penguins walking up the beach from the water, or watching an AFL game – nowhere else but Melbourne! :)

    The shot of a moped in front of a graffitied cafe shop wall. The blur of the passers by caught in the shot give a sense of the hustle and bustle in associated with city life, but the contrast of the boldness of the graffiti shows a dynamic, evolving and accepting place to be.

    To me it’s the shot of the coffee drinker. I’d like to know if there is somewhere that is more obsessed with the stuff than in Melbourne.

    Put in maths terms I see it as the coffee culture in Italy multiplied by the cafe culture in France. Only with more Silverchair on the radio and options for soy milk.

    The “distance dial” pointing to other cities (“Launceston” was one).

    The picture of the shop ‘Little Cupcakes’ (It’s about 29″ in) I chose this because I know it’s the kind of place my best friend Claire would take me. She moved to Melbourne about four years and I’ve never been able to afford the trip to go and see her. She emails me all the time to tell what an amazing city it is and the photos are proof of that but I would love to see if for myself with her as my tour guide!

  421. Alex Kelsey

    The picture that really stod out for me was the second one in, the bins and the graffiti on the back streets. This enables you to see the parts of Melbourne that you don’t find in the brochures. It allows one to see the city for itself and not for what is written on the pages of a travel magazine.

    Wow I am completely pummelled! The shot that stood out for me was the Melbourne F1 shot. I’m a big F1 fan and see the race down under would be amazing although from the photos shown the whole city looks incredible!

    Has to be the penguins making their way up the beach, absolutely stunning! There is no other place in the world I would rather be, surrounded by beautiful landscapes, and great wildlife.

  430. Peter Brown

    All of those pictures just look incredible! I’ve wanted to visit the Land Down Under for years and this has just fuelled my desire even more.

    For me, my favourite picture is the two Koalas sitting in the tree at 26secs into the clip. One of them has a Eucalyptus leaf poking out of it’s mouth.

    This sums up what I imagine a trip to Oz to be – hanging out with a mate, watching the world go by, working out what to do next…and looking cute :o )

    Even with all the beautiful natural scenery, chic city life and those amazing native animals…I am embarrassed to say having my photo with the Ramsay Street sign would probably be the photo I would treasure most.

    Definitely the VW campervan! I love them and it totally sums up Melbourne for me – they’re everywhere! And they epitomise the laid-back attitude of Melburnians.

    My clip is the one of st Kilda park clown mouth. This Summer I met my boyfriend while I was traveling, we had just seven days together and hit it off right away. When I told him I was ending my trip in in Sydney ( he’s from Melbourne) he said I should come visit. This is the spot where we met, months after meeting and I have never felt so nervous! It was a great moment i’ll never forget, we’re planning to move to Sydney together next year which is a big move for both of us. It’d be great to win flights and spend more time with his friends and family! xxx

    Some pretty awesome snaps there. I particularly love the one of a very angry (possibly killer) tomato facing off a rather innocent looking fish. Lots of great looking artwork. I’d love to go to Melbourne and see some of it.

    2192 days ago
  437. Joshua Gidney

    My favourite shot would have to be of the woman laying in the 2 hanging chairs in front of the beach about 13 seconds in. As after a long day exploring Melbourne’s culture by day, It would be nice to grab a few drinks and collapse into one of those chairs before heading out to take on the night life.

    Definately the VW campervan! I’ve always wanted to travel in one around Australia, but I also love the random ice cream cones upside down on some grass I think it was… something different!

  440. Jane Lomax

    OMG! Melbourne looks amazing!! So hard to choose! I love the shot of the motorbike ready to devour the roads, looking out over the beach, the shot of the couple walking by the Twelve Apostles is it? And the couple sat on top of the world floating in a sea of clouds.
    And well the city itself – loving the graffiti everywhere and especially the shot of the scooter parked on a hill in front of a bar/cafe with grafitti all over it – Got to love the style – old and new! definitely got to go to Melbourne! thanks for the inspiration xx

    The clip that definitely stands out for me, is the iconic Melbourne tram whizzing(!) past the very grand, Flinders Street Station, lit up at night to show it in its full glory. This clip epitomises Melbourne’s culture, showing the city’s vibrance, but also its appreciation of its history.

    Could have chosen any of the shots, but it’s the laneway art for sure. Wandering through the laneways of Melbourne you’re sure to discover a new cafe (serving amazing Melbourne coffee no doubt), restaurant or boutique every time. Love this city!

    Koalas, Kangers, Vibrant citylife and incredible coastlines – I had no idea Melbourne had so much to offer! I’m hooked!
    My favourite shot is the motorbike as it stops to look over at the beach. Imagine the freedom as you drive through all that beautiful scenery, the sun beating down, the wind in your hair, stopping when and where you want! Ah! This photo really makes me feel it now! Bliss!! :-) xx

    2192 days ago
  476. Charlotte Cheeseman

    The picture of the people having a barbeque above the beach. Every city, particularly Melbourne, has thousands of amazing things to see, but interacting with the locals in activities that they do regularly is the best way, short or living there, to really get a feel of the place

    My favourite would have to be either the iconic lunar park gate in St.kilda (simply because it is so iconic) or the panoramic view of melbourne at night by the yarra river! Melbourne is such a beautiful city…so young and fun. It makes my heart melt!

    2192 days ago

    Living on the UK where everything (even mainland Europe), is not to far away, it is hard to imagine the wide open spaces of Australia until you experience them. That is why I choose the photograph of the plate with all of the different locations around the continent and their respective distances from Melbourne. It gives you a sense of the vastness of the country. (About 5 second in).

    2192 days ago

    The shot that stood out most for me was of the sculpture of the person with piercing blue eyes staring outwards towards something. I think its as the image looks quite creepy that it stood in my mind. Can’t say its the picturesque view of Melbourne of my favourite out of those images, but its the most memorable out of those for me.

    Way to capture the essence of a place in less than 40seconds!

    The Koala beer sat in the tropical tree because i love wild animals and i have been known to do wildlife/nature photography, going to Melbourne would be a dream come true!

    There are so many images to choose from and I personally love those related to nature and the city. But I’ll have to go for the one with a couple sitting on the mountain top. This image really caught my eye as to me, it’s not something usual in Melbourne as I tend to picture Melbourne city-liked rather than nature-liked but with beaches. Not really sure as I’ve never been there. But to be on top of the mountain would be such a great experience! Especially with a loved one.

    2192 days ago

  520. sophie

    Near the beginning there is an image of street art that is reused at different angles throughout the clip. It shows an indian/Hindu goddess style character with a human angle and urban style to her pose (i think as it just a glance). This strikes me as my grasp of Melbourne being the Arts, live music and cultural capital of Australia. Coming from quite close to the Melbourne village in the U.K. the oz city was named after, it is these aspects I am most interested to see with the antipodean back drop.

    2192 days ago

    The great ocean road!! I had the most phenomenal trip along there taking in the scenery, seeing the penguins, watching the surfers and wondering rainforests. Got to be one of the most scenic coastlines in the world, especially The 12 Apostles!

    What a bonza prize!!! My big sister lives in Melbourne, she keeps telling me how great it is but I’ve never been able to get over there to visit (think I’d have to sell me yute!)!

    So to get over there would be brilliant, to see my sis first and foremost, but to combine that with the Great Ocean Road would be an AMAZING holiday!!

    Maybe with a bit of wine tasting thrown in for good measure!

    Where do I sign?? :D

    Too easy!
    0:31 Surreal imagery.
    The image of the foggy forest, a path leading to the unknown.
    For me this sums up the ultimate adventure, the nature, the unfamiliarity, the diversity. The beaches, the wildlife, the colourful people, the incredible views, the parties, all things you look forward to one day seeing in Melbourne.
    And then, that image.

    Mindboggling – what every adventure should be.

  540. Nina Romain

    The Yarra River is Melbourne’s Thames and it reminds me of London’s central river in many ways, meandering throughout the city, so that has to be it for me. I love Melbourne’s quirky creativity and arthouse style and think it’s the most European city in the Southern hemisphere. Me and a friend just spent the whole day in Melbourne’s windings streets, acting as extras in a street movie with a local comic, drinking coffee in a tiny narrow street café in the sunshine, nearly getting run over by the famous trams, eating gorgeous Greek food, seeing the sights, chatting with café owners about the cool bands playing there that night, getting dressed up to see the famous Aquarium and going out for dinner in St Kilda! It was such a wonderful day and I really wish I could re-live it!

    The 2 guys at the top of the mountain on the cliff edge (at 0.27 Seconds) above the clouds looking out into the horizon looks just spectacular. Showing that Melbourne as well as the city life, beautiful beaches and night life, has great opportunities to see some amazing views.

    It all looks so amazing!!! From the AFL, wildlife, beaches with the different coloured beach huts it all looks fab!!Hard to pick one favourite shot but the scene at the beach with a guy cooking a ‘barbie’ to me sums up typical aussie life :)

    I think the melbourne skyline at night is beautiful. It’s normal to see shots like that of NYC, London or Paris. So I love it when a different city on the other side of the world is given a chance to prove it’s beauty. Also a great friend of mine is from Melbourne and he’s an architect, so I know how much he loves the buildings in his city.

    Also did I see Louis Walsh? embarrasing subconcious message if I didn’t.

    G’DAY!!!!

    What a bonza prize!!! My big sister lives in Melbourne, she keeps telling me how great it is but I’ve never been able to get over there to visit (think I’d have to sell me yute!)!

    To get over there would be brilliant, to see my sis first and foremost, but to combine that with the Great Ocean Road would be an AMAZING holiday!!

    Maybe with a bit of wine tasting thrown in for good measure!

    Where do I sign?? :D

    The picture of the motorbike near and the beach and the Koala stuck out most for me. They are what makes Australia the amazing place it is.

  560. Lia Buddle

    I love the shots of the ocean – I absolutely love the sea, but, being a Londoner, very rarely get to go to the beach. I can’t believe Melbourne has so many exciting city places AND has the sea nearby! Heaven.

    2192 days ago
  561. Rich

    I love the shot of the formula 1 car at Albert park. In fact all of the sports scenes stood out to me because I’m an absolute sports nut which means that Melbourne is pretty much the ideal city for me I guess.

    2192 days ago
  562. Gemma Morris

    The picture of the motorbike near the beach and the koala are waht stuck out for me. They are what make Australia the great place that it is.

  563. Hannah Carpenter

    The photo that stands out has got to be the street graffiti of Mr. Angry Tomato! With my pale Irish skin after a day or so in Melbourne I will be the same colour as him but much happier displaying a giant grin!!! I so need to get a photo of me and him with our matching Tans!!

    The Cupcake Shop for me. In between the vibrant city centre and the stunning wilderness in Victoria there is a cafe culture where you meet some of the best people in the world and indulge your sweet tooth while you are there. Please send me back for a Sunday on Lygon Street ;o)

    00:05 the graffiti image of the black woman on the right with funky hair rocking her Nicki Minaj look. Stood out because of her big eyes – i suppose because our brains look for faces in everything we look at.

    South Bank! My year in Melbourne was one of the best of my life – the city oozes coolness and working at a hip restaurant in SouthBank allowed me to admire the melting pot of beautiful architecture, trend-setters and different culture that makes Melbourne the most livable city in the world. Been 5 years and I need a visit back!

    The night scene of the city looking across the water towards the buildings (and perhaps the Melbourne eye). It’s an amazing photo, wish I were there to explore this city and walk along the river, never been but looks amazing!

    2192 days ago
  575. I love the shot of the motorbike, seems like you could stop anywhere in Melbourne and see something new and make some good friends while travelling. Good times to come hopefully!

    I’d like to go to Melbourne to see a little penguin!

    Please pick me to win a trip to Melbourne…a fantastic place to be!!!

    The shot of the Aussie Rules because although Melbourne is a city truly obsessed by sport it is ‘footy’ that is the real heartbeat of the city with familys divided by team loyalty’s and the city grinding to a halt on grand final day!

    2192 days ago
  578. Clare

    The shot of the Iconic Lunar Park Face, St.Kilda beach and the amusment park is a must for all visiting Melbourne. Great atmosphere!

    It’s got to be the fleeting image of the little cupcake shop – blink and you’d miss it but I’m guessing it’s a hidden gem in one of Melbourne’s laneways. I’d love to be able to explore them, I’ve always imagined it would be full of quirky little cafes and stores with lots of yummy surprises like cupcakes!

    2192 days ago

    The shot of the Rainbow Lorikeet at 00:21! The bird looked happy enough boasting its colours to the world. I’ve always been fascinated by Australia’s vast variety of animals. I’ll have to see for myself what lives in Melbourne :)

  596. Charlotte

    The koala in the tree, it reminds me of my trip down the Great Ocean Road and we saw koalas in the wild. I always tell my boyfriend it was the best day of my life, not just because of the koalas but because of all the amazing things I did in a day (helicopter over the 12 Apostles was the best thing), and I want him to be able to share that with me.

  600. Joe Hickey

    At about 00:16, there appears to be what looks like a silhouette of an alien walking against the backdrop of a bluesky. If I was an alien, I think Australia would be the perfect place to touch down in – what a great first impression of our beautiful planet!

  602. I love the aerial shot with the turquoise sea, but my favourite is the one of the big clown face from the entrance to St Kilda fair. We had a flat in St Kilda for a few months while travelling, so I’d love to return but this time take my daughter and show her where Mum and Dad used to live!

    2192 days ago
  603. Matt

    Wow, well! loads stand out! I guess I would say the wildlife! the Koalas and Echidnas n stuff! It would be incredible to see these animals up and close! My friend has a picture of him petting a kangaroo.. so I’m quite jealous of that, to say the least! .. and obvs Melbourne is the home of Kylie so .. so that’s a natural reason! hehe.

    [i swear I saw Lewis Walsh in one of the pictures! ... or was that just my eyes going O.D. on xfactor??!]

    I love the image of the motorbike perched up on a hill overlooking the beach and sea.
    This conjures up a sense of freedom and exploration. You can imagine that beyond the image there is an open road and some beautiful sights waiting to be discovered.
    I would love to visit Melbourne and to explore the natural and urban landscape on a Motorbike and to find out if all the interesting things I have heard about the culture, the sights and the people is true.

    The night time scene on the water…. all the buildings lit up and the reflection of the lights in the water. All of the blues and purples just look incredible. Love to see it for real. (Also, just had a new baby cousin born in Oz yesterday….love to meet up with my family!) :D

    2192 days ago
  627. John Kitt

    I’d like to say that St Kilda and the gorgeous cakes sold in the shops on Acland Street stand out. The magnificent Flinders Street Station as well, but in reality the most beautiful sight in Melbourne is the young woman I’ve never met, but have been speaking with since January 03rd. She’s simply stunning.

    2192 days ago
  628. Simon Sleight

  629. sarah rygielski

    Wow, Melbourne looks soo amazing, cant possibly pick a clip as everyone was fantastic. The clips of the beaches stick in my mind, as there so beautiful! Loved the clips of the wildlife, kangaroos and Koalas as they seem to represent Australia!:)

    2192 days ago
  630. Emma Barronwell

    the motorbike driving down the hill with the gorgeous hills on one side and the sea on the other! seems like a perfect combination to me!

  631. I love the great ocean road, my girlfriend was driving I was drinking, we saw the apostles (were 12 I think there are 11 now), a couple of beaches on the way, and was lucky to get close to a koala by the roadside (one tourist managed to pick the wild koala up, unscathed – not however recommended no matter how cuddly they look!)

    Would be nice to pop down again with a mate. Like your pics of the great ocean road!

    2192 days ago
  632. Andy Gwilliam

    Flinders Street Station – I love that place. Such an amazing building and a crazy hive of activity. When us British say “it’s like Piccadilly Circus in here” (to mean busy) Aussie’s say “it’s like Flinders Street Station”.
    Also, did you know Melbourne was founded by Batman, and used to be called Batmania! True story. Why would you change that name??? That would’ve been the best place name in the world – second only to “Upper Ramsbottom” in Lancashire.

    2192 days ago

  637. As a city boy through and through it’s got to be the Yarra River City scene. The skyscrapers are my personal mountains. I would give my right arm to be on that river side sipping cocktails in a swanky bar to turn to the side and see the whole river lit up by the Yarra river flames!!

    2192 days ago
  638. Carly O'Neill

    It all looks absolutely stunning and i hope to experience it all one day! But my absolute fave, no doubt about it is the 4 x 4 driving along the coast, an awesome mixture of sea, sun and greenery! Take me there now! :D

    2192 days ago
  639. Laura Conway

    I love the shot of the people chilling under orange canopies, with a pink hazing sky turning into night, as Melbournes city light begin to flicker on. The same shot flashed up later in breaking sunlight….a great way to show how a city centre can be beautiful.

    I also love the winding coastal road – blue ocean, breaking waves,open roads….get me on a motor bike in Melbourne!!!

    2192 days ago
  640. Jamie Robson

    It’s the pictures of the graffiti streets and the images of the motorbike which I most enjoyed and picked up on. I guess they both represent a sense of freedom and subcultural fascination. I love that Melbourne has chosen to embrace street art, cultivate it and ultimately display it with pride. To see this in person and attempt to find more would be awesome. Throw in a motorbike and I’ll be an even happier guy. :D

    2192 days ago
  641. Rose Jennings

    The tropical bird….no idea what kind of bird it is but those colours meant it was imprinted onto the back of my eyeballs long after it was gone. Melbourne looks an amazing place if those pictures are anything to go by..I just wish you had a slow down button so I could see them all properly!

    2192 days ago
  642. Peter Lochhead

    All of the pictures really evoked a sense of Australian culture, community spirit and diversity, but for me, the shots of the many lane ways in Melbourne stood out. They seem to represent hidden secrets dotted around the city waiting to be discovered!

    2192 days ago
  643. Robert Riddle

    For me the two young boys walking across the over pass, from what I think is an airport terminal.. With nothing but a back pack and each other’s hopes and dreams, the simplest of pleasures!

    The shot of the penguins for sure, they look so adorable running down the beach. A close second is the shot of the lights of the city reflecting in the water, it is just beautiful.

    At such a frenetic speed, it’s hard to pick one out but I liked the iconic kangaroo and the koala. Melbourne deserves to be seen at a much gentler pace!

    my favourite is the clip at 28seconds of the couple sitting on rocks looking over the horizon. this to me sums up travelling, where you just take in the beauty of the surrounding area. i’ve been travelling but never to Melbourne! this would be an amazing adventure for me!!

    2192 days ago
  660. Emma Peate

    The amazing graffiti clips, and the fact that a city like Melbourne seem to accept and indeed embrace it as part of the culture, part of the city and embrace it as art, even though as you go through the clip it contrasts so much with the architecture and the beautiful beaches & wildlife such as the Koala bear, although the colours of the bird enhacne the colours in the graffiti!

    It looks simply amazing!

    Would absolutely love to go to Australia, all the scenery shots look stunning! However for some reason the photo of the creepy mask stood out to me…and I’m sure I saw Karl Kennedy in there!!

    I ♥ Melbourne! Pictures that stood out for me: Flinders Street Stn.- historical building where so many paths cross over; The beautiful photograph of the pier at sunset, reminds me of St.Kilda and all the Jelly Fish at Williamstown. Finally the graffiti art “Imagine a city…where everybody draw(s) whatever they liked. Where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring..” Banksy: it’s Melbourne!

    I love the picture with the people chilling under orange canopies, with a pink hazing sky turning into night, as the city lights flicker on. The same shot is feature later in the breaking sunlight -showing how stunning a city centre can be.

    Also love the open costal road; breaking wave, moody sky, blue ocean….get me from drizzly Belfast to Melbourne please!!x

    the image with the field full of kangaroo’s was amazing to see!

    It has to be the picture of the F1 car. Having been to Melbourne before I can not imagine how the city would be transformed into an F1 racing track. It must be such a truly awesome atmosphere.

    I love the shots of the Street art, living in Bristol, England there is a huge street art scene and the Melbourne Street art shots look even more vibrant than ours(must be something to do with the great weather!) Would be good to come and see some of the Banksy’s in Melbourne too…although I hear they may have been painted over :-(

    All looks fab though and would love to visit!

    Wow, it´s pretty impossible to choose, Melbourne seems like an amazing place! I guess what caught my eye was the aussie football!! I´d love to see a game!! And the streets with all the colourful graffiti. Melbourne´s definitely got some style :-)

    I’m jealous of birds. So the prospect of being a big yellow one for a few hours appeals massively. Get me in that hot air balloon, soaring over Melbourne’s fields with mountains in the distance. One gigantic tick off the bucket list.

    The beach aerial shots look amazing with the aqua sea. I also noticed the koala and kangaroos as for me as an animal lover I would love to see them in the wild. Perhaps what stood out most however, was the grafiti heads, as this was something unexpected for me.

    I really loved all the scenery photos with the dramatic rolling skys but my favourite has to be the picture of the guy with the prison photo. It made me actually laugh out loud because I couldn’t even start to imagine what a squeaky clean guy like that did to get a mugshot! :)

    It has to be the street art photos, particularly the one of the little man. You can’t walk down a street in Melbourne without there being some cool artwork around, such an amazing, vibrant city.

    All the AMAZING wildlife living in Melbourne and how awesome it would be to see such colourful beautiful animals and scenery for the first time.

    The shot of the hot air balloon in the sky. Because it was such a perfect composition of the image: the bright yellow balloon in the center of the frame, contrasting with and separating the greens and browns below and the blues above.
    It’s the perfect combination of man made machine vs nature, because they go well together.

    My favourite shot has to be of the night-time shot of Melbourne – Central Train Station with the tram going past the front of the building. I love the architecture of the train station and it just looks even better lit up at night in that photo.

    The F1 car immediately popped out at me, I’d love to see a Grand Prix live! Then have some long walks on that beautiful coast line, maybe finishing off the trip by going to watch some Aussie rules Football. I’m a big sport lover but don’t quite understand Australian Football so it would be great to see it in person too!

  718. The image of the couple high up in the mountains above the clouds is breathtaking. I didn’t know the region had mountains that high. They look as though they could almost be perched on a sea front, watching the waves coming in from a stormy sea. Amazing. I’ve never ventured to that part of the world – but it looks like an amazing place. Hope I get the chance to take my other half with me to see it.

  734. The night shot of the illuminated buildings in the background, and the lovely walkway in the foreground @ 0:21. It captures the soul of Melbourne, kind of like a ghost of the leftover has-been buzz of the city during the day, continuing into the night. Beautiful.

    The spot of my choice is the car going along the coast! Great ocean road, I guess. I would love to do just that! I would take my girlfriend, our surfboards, a tent and some outdoor cooking devices and go and explore! I looove driving and I love outdoors. This would be the perfect holiday, unforgett
