Congrats Vienna! It was an honour to hold the title of World’s Most Liveable City for the past seven years but we’re not greedy and it was time to give another city a turn.
We’re renovating our trophy cabinet so don’t get too comfortable.

Happy 148th Birthday Melbourne Town Hall.

Did you know the opening of Town Hall on the 9th of August 1870 was celebrated with a Fancy Dress Ball?
The festivities continued for a couple of days and the menu included six boars’ heads, 12 saddles of mutton, 12 sides of lamb, 250 fowls and half a tonne of ice.

Do you think it’s important that new buildings are well designed and contribute to a city we can be proud of well into the future? We do. That’s why we’re reviewing our urban design policies for the central city and Southbank.
There’s still time to have your say before submissions close on Friday 10 August, so take a look and share your feedback

Did you know that Centre Place was originally called Cummings Alley until 1915?

It was among the first laneways to be revitalised by the city in the 1980's.
Today it is a great place to grab a bite to eat.

We think you will agree, we are really, really, ridiculously good looking. We are getting ready for the catwalk @melbfashionweek

It’s time for a Monday brag. We’re rather chuffed with our new ‘Skinny Park’ at Bellair Street Reserve in Kensington. What do you think? What do you love most about going to the park?

Did you wake early or stay up late to see the #lunareclipse last night? @emeraldwink took this beautiful shot. We’d love to see yours. Tag #melbmoment 🌕🌝
