1. WhAt focal length (35mm equiv) would be you bring? In general.

I took the Sony RX1 (fixed 35mm) and got along fine.

2. Are the ppl there "photography friendly"? Like those shops owners, ppl sitting in a cafe , guys walking along the roads. I am asking this because in some countries ppl do not like to be taken photo.. Or are intimidated by ppl taking photos like a tourist

People in Melbourne are incredibly photography friendly. Go to the Central Business District, where people are generally well dressed and happy to chat / pose.

Melbourne CBD.

Also consider a side trip to Tasmania, which is like a microcosm of Australia. There's whiskey, surfing, hiking, and no one's in a hurry.

Winter surfing in Tasmania.

Have fun.
