Hi Julie and thank you for your question. Melbourne has a good gay scene but like all cities it depends on which crowd you choose to hang out with. I moved down to Melbourne 4 yrs ago from Brisbane and have made some really good friends.
The scene in Melbourne is very diverse from the club scene to socialising in pubs etc, we also have lots of events such as Midsummer carnival to pride.
Melbourne is great in short!
If you have anything else to ask just ask.
