“The State library in Swanston Street opposite Melbourne Central train station is pretty amazing and often overlooked. Beautiful glass and sandstone and not many tourists around.” — The Teskey Brothers

“I find my hometown of Warrandyte to be the most inspiring and naturally beautiful part of Melbourne. It’s a 35 minute drive north east from the city ( take bus 906). It has the Yarra river flowing through it (great for a swim and a picnic) framed by mighty gumtrees. Warrandyte was one of the earliest places where gold was found so it’s got a lot of cultural history. These days it’s known for the strong arts community. All four members of The Teskey Brothers grew up here and we still spend a lot of time in the area. Recently we shot a video for our song ‘Louisa’ in Warrandyte which was a lot of fun.” — The Teskey Brothers
