Summertime in Melbourne is a chipper time. The city is alive. People are out and about enjoying longer days, warmer nights and some December frivolity. We’re wearing less but in brighter colours; our freckles are starting to show; we’re back in the pool and on the bike; and a sure sign, people are sunning themselves on deck chairs at Fed Square. There’s an excitable energy in the air and people are lapping it up.

Our photographer Shannon Boh gets a piece of the action in this gallery of the city. From the banks of the Yarra to the early morning markets, he captures a buzz that’s contagious.

Take a look through our gallery of summertime in the city and get out there. We’ll be bringing you all the action for the warmer months – stay tuned.
