The amazing Deserted Melbourne Flickr page

Sometimes sheer luck points you toward the exceptional and fascinating. That's the case with Urban Melbourne's recent 'discovery' of a Flickr page dedicated to Melbourne arguably at its most barren.

Deserted Melbourne Postcode 3000 deals solely with images of Melbourne, the city, without the people who inhabit it. From below ground to street level to vantage points up high, all angles are covered during all times of day and night by this impressive corner of Flickr.

As the CBD morphs into a 24 hour city due to an ever ballooning population, opportunities will become more scarce to snap Melbourne at rest, which makes these images all the more remarkable!

unfortunately, our min. wage is too high for that to ever be possible -- $10+ is probably more realistic, if the hip$ter foodtruck trend is any indicator.

Visual Melbourne

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”.
