24 Hours in the Life of Melbourne

In 2017, Chris Cincotta set his alarm for 4am and ventured into Melbourne's CBD in time for sunrise. After six months of planning- and with the help of a crew of mates for supplies and support - Cincotta spent the next, sleepless, 24 hours roaming - interviewing and photographing the people that make our town buzz.

Cincotta's sunrise-to-sunrise odyssey takes him past favourite and secret Melbourne places and uncovers the stories of the travellers, new residents, and true-blue Melbourne natives he encounters along the way. With a wealth of knowledge about our bluestone metropolis, Chris also peppers '24 Hours' with fascinating snippets of history: The location of a corner where olden-days lovers used to rendezvous, and the true meaning behind the glowing golden apex of The Eureka Tower. 

A real Melbourne local, you can often find Chris leading a walking tour through our laneways and famous public buildings, or selling colourful prints, calendars and books from his repurposed news kiosk on Swanston Street. 

With 200 pages of beautiful colour photographs, and packed with little-known Melbourne history and stories, this book is  a must-have for the coffee table of newcomers to Melbourne, or a memento for those who wish they could return.
