August 30th 2012 marks the 177th Birthday of the City of Melbourne!
It was 177 years ago today that the city was founded and the first European settlers landed on the north bank of the Yarra River back in 1835.
This is also a special day in terms of celebrating the beginnings of the first ever Melbourne community.  A community that has grown and developed in such a way that it has contributed hugely to Melbourne being recognised in this present day as an essential must-see destination on any visit to Australia. 

To recognise and commemorate the birthday of Melbourne, we here at Trip Tide are dedicating the month of September to discovering and uncovering the hidden gems of "the worlds most liveable city" in Melbourne Uncovered!
Please join us and share your photos, experiences and top tips of Melbourne to let others know exactly why this city deserves to be on everyone's most wanted list.
