9 Best Australian Lifestyle Blogs | Man of Many

Modesty is key, right? Since launching back in 2012, Man of Many has grown to become the largest independent men’s lifestyle blog in Australia. And while we aren’t above flaunting our credentials, the goal has always been to drop the culture, tech, fashion and gaming news you actually want to read. Whether it’s the biggest music festivals you need to know about, the latest tech gear to hit the market or the best new experiences you can’t afford to miss, Man of Many is here to help make your weekends a little bit more enjoyable.

This Aussie lifestyle blog operates out of Melbourne and Sydney and utilises a thorough, albeit playful reporting style to bring you the latest in food and pop culture trends. Broadsheet is the kind of lifestyle site one visits in order to find the activities they didn’t even know existed in the first place. In addition to providing coverage of everything noteworthy in food, fashion and pop culture, the site also excels at the customised experience by allowing users to create their own MyBroadsheet accounts. That means you can not only use Broadsheet as a platform to explore the best in nightlife and fashion but also as a space to keep track of your own favourite destinations or your wish list of activities.

Vice has been making plenty of waves in the past few years and with good reason. The publication represents first and foremost a return to “real news”, with reporters who keep their ears to the streets to bring us international stories that the other outlets have been paid not to cover. Vice is also committed to embracing people from all walks of life so as to heighten a vital sense of cultural awareness. As far as Australian lifestyle blogs go, Vice of course appeals to the adventurous types, those who want to step outside their comfort zones by indulging in the experiences of other cultures and ethnicities. By emphasising experiences that are truly new and exciting, Vice is perhaps the best resource for the man who’s tired of playing it safe or predictable. After all, one adventure usually leads to another.

If scientists could tap directly into the mind of a twenty-something Australian male, and then convert that data into a website, Monster Children might very well be the result. Don’t be fooled by the name. This is the kind of Australian lifestyle blog that takes a no-nonsense approach to all the nonsense that we young men love so much. Smoke, drink, pop culture, hilarious news bytes, girls, surf, skate, travel, fashion, etc. etc. The lifestyle blog is a wealth of stimuli, almost to the point where you want to stay in and play around on the computer instead of going out at all. Of course, should you choose to get up off your ass and say find the best surf spots or go hear some great music, Monster Children has your back.

This Australian lifestyle blog has branded itself the “house of pop culture” and it certainly has the content to back up such a claim. The site boasts a tremendous portfolio of lifestyle articles, pop culture news, social media events, and its own recording studio in addition to managing content for artists and companies alike. Pedestrian TV is a refuge for all things pop culture and a immersive world unto itself. It offers an endless range of recommendations for those who want to go out and then an equally endless range of entertainment options for those who’d rather stay in.

The main page is beyond accessible, going as far as providing star ratings of new restaurants as well as articles on the best things to do for the weekend, which is exactly why you came here in the first place. Concrete Playground is also a lifestyle blog where the layout, design, and photography is as tantalising as the food and drink. An essential resource.
