How can you tell if Melbourne is the city for you? Here’s a list of all the things that make up a typical Melbournian.

You wear black, devotedly.

“It’s my uniform, OK?”

It may be the AFL, but you know all the best teams will always be from Melbourne.

OK, Victoria. But it’s all just outer Melbourne really.

You know that an umbrella and a jacket are important accessories.

You want to participate in the annual Zombie Shuffle.

You either love or loathe dressing up for Cup Day.

And leaving with your shoes in your hand is definitely not classy.

You can’t wait for the Boxing Day Test, especially if it’s the Ashes .

Even if you hate cricket, you can’t pass up a chance to have an all day picnic/drink-a-thon with your mates.

You need a café and a thrift store in your neighbourhood, preferably within walking distance, but you’ll take the tram if you have to.

You collect rail tickets.

And you have a preferred ticket system, either team Metcard or team Myki.


Are there any other indicators that I’ve missed? Do you fit the mold? Let me know.

  1. No I do not: no, nope and not at all!!
    I think I am the antithesis of a Melbournian.
    Would you like to be one???
    I am going to sew a new dress….with the ruffles from this dress…Simplicity 1872 Does that make me a Melbourn-ite??
