Hello, Melbourne!

Megan McKean

Much anticipated follow-up to Hello, Sydney!. A delightful look and find adventure with fun facts that kids and parents will both enjoy featuring a ‘mischief' of magpies.


This charming picture book from the creator of Hello, Sydney! treats us to a tour of Melbourne hosted by six friendly magpies. The simple, playful illustrations portray Melbourne’s most iconic sites, including Flinders Street Station, the Royal Botanic Gardens and Hosier Lane.

There are lots of fun facts that even locals may be surprised by. Did you know that Ned Kelly’s armour is housed at the State Library, the NGV has the largest stained-glass ceiling in the world or that you can discover a penguin colony on St Kilda pier? You can even see Readings Carlton on the ‘Little Italy’ page, with a smiling Mark Rubbo standing out the front.

Hello, Melbourne! touches on many of the city’s passions – art, sport, nature and of course, food – in a fun journey with plenty to spot on each page. This is a delightful introduction to Melbourne for a visiting child, a reminder of the many reasons to love the city for a local, or the perfect present for an international friend. Hello, Melbourne! is suitable for ages 3+.
