As a born and bred Sydney-sider now living in Melbourne I’m often asked the inevitable question – which city do you like best? Answering “both” doesn’t seem to be PC especially with the long running rivalry between these two great cities.
But it is true – both cities are fab but for different reasons. To date, all my manuscripts have been set in either Sydney or Melbourne and I enjoy bringing what I love about each city into the story.
Sydney – you can’t go past the stunning harbour, the beautiful beaches, relaxed lifestyle and the balmy weather.
Melbourne – you can’t go past the café culture, the fashion, quirky city lane ways and the obsession with sport (think AFL, Melbourne Cup etc).
So what is the best thing you like in either Sydney and Melbourne?
