Opinions/advice needed Recently moved to Melbourne, hoping to make friends


Morning all.

Recently moved to Australia on a WHV from the UK but looking to move here permanently eventually. I’ve been in Melbourne since February and struggling to meet people.

I’ve used Facebook groups and Bumble BFF to make friends but not great amount of luck. Admittedly I’m a little shy and introverted, was wondering if there are any suggestions on how to meet new people in a new city? I’m based in Eastern Suburbs but happy to travel if there’s social events etc elsewhere.

Thanks all.

Willing to travel outside my inner north comfort zone bubble for exceptional bacon.

Opinions/advice needed Where can I find out what’s being built?


They’ve started constructing something on what was a random grassy/parky area near me. I’ve tried googling the streets that area is nearest to amd the suburb and adding “construction” but nothing comes up.

Is there somewhere where I can see what’s being built there? I’ve checked the council sites ans there’s nothing. I’m pretty sure it’s a residential building either homes or an apartment complex, but it could also be factory
