Great Ocean Road

We hired a car and did the road trip in one day but it was definitely rushed. Preferably you should try to spend at least a couple of days to see everything. It would’ve been worth it to take our time to appreciate and explore it more thoroughly. If you are limited for time and have to do it in one day like we did, make sure you leave Melbourne early in the morning. We took the inland route coming back […]

Queen Victoria Market

The Queen Victoria Market is one of Melbourne’s most historical sites, opening in 1878. It began as a livestock market and now has everything you can imagine. You can find literally everything here from fresh fish and fruit to clothes and art. There is also a food court. Night markets are open in the summer, from the end of November to mid-February […]

Phillip Island

Phillip Island seems to be well known for the penguin parade, but there is more to do and see to make the long trip truly worthwhile. I know in asking about the island, there were many that said “don’t bother”, but we ended up taking a tour out that direction, and found it very worthwhile. The big difference is probably us “furr-i-ners”, who can truly marvel at the uniqueness of native wildlife, and the native Aussies, who take such for granted […]

Rialto Tower

Rialto Tower – for a number of years stood proud as the tallest building in Melbourne and the tallest reinforced concrete structure in the Southern Hemisphere It has lost the Melbourne tallest building status to the building featured in most of these images – the Eureka Tower, the world’s tallest apartment building for a short period of time […]

St. Kilda

Nothing, arguably, epitomises St Kilda more than Luna Park. It was established in 1912 when St Kilda had become the city resort of Melbourne (and was trying to re-establish itself as a respectable area following its ‘colonisation’ at the end of the 19th century by prostitution, drugs and alcohol) […]

Dandenong Ranges

My last morning on my 1st trip to Melbourne was spent here, in the Dandenong Ranges National Park. Me & my mates were eager to hit the outdoors and after pouring through the pages of the Lonely Planet, decided on the trails here, just off One Tree Hill […]

Old Melbourne Gaol

I would recommend you put a visit to Melbournes Old Gaol on your ‘Must Do’ list. This remarkable old building is in the care of the National Trust of Australia and they do a superb job of letting you experience the sad history and heavy atmosphere of the Old Gaol […]

Federation Square

People seem to either love this place or hate it. This is basically a small pedestrian square built right next Flinders Station, with some very… unique… architecture as its claim to fame. The square is surrounded by several building whose design is nothing if not unique. The buildings house museums, […]

Chinatown, Melbourne

Melbourne’s Chinatown resembles most Chinatowns I have seen back in the states. This particular area of Melbourne is located on Little Bourke Street and branches out to side streets and alleyways. This Chinatown dates back to the Gold Rush days of the 1850’s that brought a flood of Chinese immigrants looking to make it rich[…]

Cook’s Cottage

Arguably Australia’s oldest building, Captain James Cooks’ parents cottage was sold in the town of Great Ayton, North Yorkshire, UK, for £800, dismantled and transported to Melbourne, Australia, where it was re-erected in Fitzroy Gardens. The purchase of the cottage was a gift from a wealthy industrialist, Sir Russell Grimwade, […]
