Inside Melbourne is a collection of stories about the many Melburnians who shape the human backdrop of what has been dubbed the world's most liveable city.

From the tram drivers and baristas to the city's suits and creatives, each has a story to tell about their life, work and relationship with Melbourne. The faces of these Melburnians may be ones you see every day.

Perhaps you greet them with a "G'day!" Or perhaps you miss seeing them all together - whether they're standing right in front of you or otherwise. Either way, you'll get to see them now.

Welcome (to) Inside Melbourne.
