Marinella Padula

Head Writer

Marinella has been helping to make Melbourne more unaffordable via a variety of publications since the early 2000s. The irony is not lost on her.

Marinella Padula was part of the Deck of Secrets crew since the times when coffee was just a warm, caffeinated beverage and you didn’t have to queue outside a restaurant at 6 for dinner at 8. Yep, she feels old too. Melbourne may have changed beyond measure but Marinella still delights in discovering those special gems that, for a little while anyway, take you to a better place.
