About this website
The White Hat Website provides comprehensive information about Melbourne and Australia in a manner that is Informed, Intelligent, Independent and (sometimes) Irreverent. In particular, we attempt to maintain a comprehensive online listing of what's on in Melbourne, and feedback from our users and newsletter subscribers indicates that we have the most useful listing of events, festivals and markets in Melbourne.
Our first priority is content, and then if there is time and resources we will attempt to make it pretty. There is rarely time. Our pages try to avoid the hype and marketing talk found on many sites. You will find few exclamation marks on our site!!! We aim to present information in a manner that is Intelligent, Informed, Independent and (sometimes) Irreverent.
