The destruction of France’s Notre-Dame cathedral is devastating. But so is the destruction of Indigenous sacred sites. In Australia, this happens all the time, usually for the purposes of mining or the development of highways.

Melbourne is a vibrant and lively city of music. Any night of the week, quality live music is never too far away. Whether you like folk, indie or heavy metal, our venues have you covered. To get a better grasp on the mecca of music, I had a chat with two major Melbourne bands.

There are those rivalries that will go down in history as absolute GOATs (Greatest of All Time for all my acronym illiterates out there). Coke versus Pepsi, Star Wars versus Star Trek, an English breakfast versus a Continental breakfast. Alongside these pop culture tensions are the rivalries that emerge between cities. From Moscow and St Petersburg, to Barcelona and Madrid, Australia’s own Melbourne versus Sydney seems to be one of the more infamous. According to the rest of the world, this battle between Oz’s two biggest cities has gotten a little bit out of control!

While my brother played footy, I made daisy chains on the sidelines. While the boys at school kicked the ball, the girls dangled from monkey bars. They played Jack in the Pack while we did cartwheels. No ever told us we couldn’t play footy but no one ever told us we could either. I always wanted to play but the only way was to join the boys’ team and be the token tomboy. So instead I choose (and loved) basketball and became a Fremantle fan for life.
