This is where information about Melbourne's suburbs and key locations will be placed.

Many of the inner suburbs of Melbourne are predominantly slums. They are often dangerous places with gangs, violence and corruption. The suburbs that we associate with wealth today, such as Brighton and Toorak, are typically the wealthy ones of the time. Suburbs south of the river are prone to flooding, as proper drainage hadn't been constructed yet.

Before adding a location, wait for ST confirmation that you have the place, or have been to a place and actually know what's going on there.
Players can also note if they frequent an area and aren't secretive about it.
