Local woman, Claudia Harris (27), is from Melbourne.
Speaking to The Betoota Advocate today, Claudia says she really misses the coffee scene in Melbourne and the fierce Australian Rules tribalism that only really exists in Melbourne.
“Well, as someone who grew up in Melbourne, I often wonder why places like Brisbane and Sydney are so similar to eachother,”
“Like, I’m surprised that they don’t just splatter fluro coloured paint over abandoned back alleys, like they do in Melbourne,”
“In fact, the whole graffiti-slash-guerrilla art thing only really exists in Melbourne,”
“Like, I like Bondi and stuff, but Melbourne’s Italian community are pretty world-renowned for their restaurants,”
“Its a bit more European down there, I guess”
“Like in Prahan and Carltfilda”
“Actually Yarraswickroy is pretty similar to to Sydney, and some parts of Brisbane”
Despite living in Queensland since she was 18, Claudia often visits Melbourne and someday plans to move back to Melbourne. This is due to a range of reasons that people who aren’t from Melbourne don’t understand, mainly because you have to be from Melbourne to get it. Because its a Melbourne thing.
“The trams are definitely something I miss, like 24 hour transport is so important”
