I think it would be great to incorporate a link to Parkhound www.parkhound.com.au which offer all Street Parking data for the CBD area. This will assist people who are travelling into the city looking for parking.

::Thanks for the tip. I've added the notice, and we'll see if anyone else wishes to contribute. My mapmaking skills are a disaster, so hopefully someone knows how to make a decent map around here. <big>[[User:JamesA|<font face="Segoe UI"><font color="#4682b4"><big>J</big>ames'''<small>A</small>'''</font></font>]]</big> <sup>[[User talk:JamesA|<font face="Segoe UI"><font color="#191970">'''>talk'''</font></font>]]</sup> 04:18, 14 May 2012 (EDT)
 
*Looks good JamesA - my suggestions are:
**don't make the Mornington a subset of Melbourne. It should be a subdistrict of Victoria as it is a destination in its own right. The Dandenongs are arguable either way, so I'm not fussed.
**I question whether Flemington needs its own article.
**Does South Bank need its own article, separate to the city? It has enough destinations in its own right and is distinguishable even from "South Melbourne"
**"Parkville/Carlton" might be better named "Inner North". [[User:JRG|JRG]] 09:13, 12 June 2012 (EDT)
 
::Thanks for the comments, JRG. Great to have some feedback! I'd agree with Flemington not requiring its own article, but where does it belong? West Suburbs, North Suburbs, Inner north, Central? And Inner North is a much better name, and then we can chuck in North Melbourne. The Toorak area also needs its own name. I'm tempted to say "Wealthy inner suburbs", but that would be biased. :P Possibly "Stonnington", and expand it to include Malvern?
::I was a little unsure of the Mornington Peninsula. Official sources say that coastal region down from Frankston to Portsea is part of the metropolitan area. But I wouldn't include places on the other side like Flinders and Hastings in Melbourne. A region of Victoria would probably be best.
::As for Southbank, I feel that putting it on its own may not get it enough info. I know locally, it's regarded as a world of its own. But going by the [[Melbourne/Central]] article, there's not too much to say about Southbank. I guess if we listed many of the restaurants on the waterfront, got some shops from Crown and added attractions like the river tours and Eureka Skydeck, it could all add up. I'm happy to let it have its own district, and if it doesn't work, it can be merged later.
::One last thing: should the large Suburbs articles be further divided into suburbs/councils? Eastern Suburbs is going to add up to be one huge article that isn't much use to the traveller, when it's talking about places that are dozens of kilometres apart. I think dividing them into their councils and moving articles like [[Melbourne/Werribee]] to [[Melbourne/Wyndham]] (including other places like the RAAF base at Point Cook) would work better. Okay, that's all I have to say. :) <big>[[User:JamesA|<font face="Segoe UI"><font color="#4682b4"><big>J</big>ames'''<small>A</small>'''</font></font>]]</big> <sup>[[User talk:JamesA|<font face="Segoe UI"><font color="#191970">'''>talk'''</font></font>]]</sup> 09:57, 12 June 2012 (EDT)
 
:::Something super easy would be to define the inner city into local government areas, following this map here: http://chartingtransport.files.wordpress.com/2010/04/melbourne-lga-regions1.png So you'd have:
:::*Melbourne
:::*Yarra
:::*Port Phillip
:::for the 'centre section'
:::then Darebin, Stonnington, Moreland, etc. for the inner suburbs, and then a few more broader articles to cover the suburbs further out.
:::To be honest, I think we should have Melbourne, Yarra, and Port Phillip, and then group the other LGAs, because I don't think many tourists are going to find that much in Ascot Vale or Reservoir. [[Special:Contributions/60.240.136.168|60.240.136.168]] 05:34, 2 July 2014 (EDT)
