After extensive research on the internet to find the best places in Melbourne to see celebrities, a person with nothing better to do with their life came across the website Boroondara Life which recommended that Camberwell was a good place for celebrity spotting.
“No it’s not! It really sucks! When I read that Camberwell was the home of Geoffrey Rush, The Minogue sisters, Barry Humphries and Jeff Kennett I thought ‘Wowzers!’ I can’t afford to go to that place in Hollywood where they have the stars on the footpath but I definitely can top up my Myki and catch a tram. Well, I’ve been making that journey for 6 months now hanging out at all the places that I would expect to see a celeb…Red Robyn, Pilates studios, Woolworths carpark and nothing! I have a strong mind to contact Boroondara Life and give them a piece of my mind!
Boroondara Life was not available for comment but strong anecdotal evidence from locals suggest that it would be extremely unlikely to see the Minogue sisters in Camberwell anytime in the near future.
“Yeah I think Kylie kind of prefers England now, I’m not really sure where Dannii hangs out but I haven’t seen her at the Palace for ages. Sometimes you can see Geoffrey Rush when he’s not wearing a disguise, buying bread rolls from Woolies. I saw Jeff Kennett getting a haircut the other day… that was really exciting!”
Suffice to say that despite the many positive features of Camberwell, spotting A- list celebrities is probably a time wasting venture that will lead to huge disappointment.
