Artistic Melbourne is the cultural capital of Australia, with its edgy street art, top museums and multicultural food scene.
Chic laneway eateries and rooftop bars are sprouting across the city, transcending the borders of flashy St Kilda and hipster Fitzroy. The inner-city suburbs are equally exciting. Spend the weekend rollerblading along the Esplanade in St. Kilda, or rummaging through secondhand pieces at the Camberwell market.
Women digital nomads will feel comfortable in Melbourne, as long as you follow common sense like you would at home. Avoid taking public transportation alone or walking down dark alleys at night.
Melbourne is not a destination for the penny pinching digital nomad. The country as a whole has a high cost of living, and is best experienced when you are already working on a paid project!
Melbourne has been called a city with 4 seasons in one day, and that is true! Between the months of March and October (late summer to early spring), be prepared for a wide variety of temperatures, humidity, and precipitation.
Summer (late January-mid February) is sizzling hot, with the worst of the high temperatures. Some afternoons reach 40-45 Celsius, and the ozone layer here being virtually nonexistent means you need to take extra precaution with sunscreen protection.
