Welcome to my blog for the Nellie Melba Back Blocks Tour completed in Australia in 1909. For the next 6 months I’ll be visiting the 30 plus towns where Madame Melba performed in New South Wales and Queensland. Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and West Australia will be travelled in 2017.

Each concert and town has been researched and contact made with local groups to add any more information. Photos of the town in Melba’s day and today will be collected and added to this blog.

In the next couple of weeks I will be adding the places and dates Melba visited and perhaps you have a Melba story you can contribute.
