Recreational drug taking (including drinking) is part of the nightlife of our city. Policymakers, healthcare professionals, academics and industry insiders need an accurate picture of how, why and when we take drugs in order to keep us safe while supporting nightlife and good times. To that end, the totally anonymous Global Drug Survey is asking people around the world to be honest about their drug use. For years the Global Drug Survey (GDS) has been asking people to share their recreational drug habits by filling out a confidential and encrypted online survey. Because recreational drug use is illegal in many countries, it can be hard to get accurate information on the issue. The survey is privately commissioned by a group of international experts in drugs, health and public policy – so you don’t need to fear being contacted by the feds. This year the GDS is focusing a lot on CBD oil, which is found in many countries in everything from dietary supplements to hand lotions. But does CBD oil actually accomplish what it says it will? It's currently only available in Australia by prescription, but many people order it online illegally. If you're one of them, the GDS wants to hear from you. The GDS is also asking questions like: Do you take psychedelics as medicine for psychiatric illness? What are your biggest regrets after drinking, if any?

We should err on the side of caution when describing Williamstown as “greater Melbourne”. Not only will the locals love to tell you it’s only 20 minutes to the city (and no tolls!), but there’s a beach that’s accessible via public transport, a gorgeous pier to stroll down and stunning views towards the city and across Port Phillip Bay. As Melbourne's first seaport, Williamstown has swiftly developed into a trendy seaside suburb with a village feel. There are plenty of cafés and restaurants, you can hop on a bike and circle the water’s edge, or just find a quiet spot to sit and think about all the things you still have left to do. Looking for more fun in the west? Check out our guides to Footscray and Yarraville while you're here.
