    We visited the Conservatory today as part of our walk through the gardens. Our daughter was married in the Conservatory in 2000 so it brought back many memories.
    The floral displays inside this delightful are wonderful and the temperate environment a welcome relief from the chilly winds outside.
    Entry is free and this really is a must visit attraction. I have posted some photos which show how delightful it is.
    The immaculate upkeep of the grounds and the Conservatory is a credit to the city.

    This lovely area on the banks of the Yarra River in the heart of Melbourne is a great shopping and dining precinct. Great place to stroll along and choose from the large number of eateries or browse the shops. From Southbank you can also board the ferries to Williamstown or join one of the river cruises.

    The Street Art of Melbourne is of a high quality and in some cases paid for by the City of Melbourne for specific purposes. This in itself is a contentious issue and has caused great debate amongst street artists and others.

    They make political statements, honour those who have died and showcase beauty in the form of portraits / cartoons.

    I enjoy walking and photographing here various times of the year as the Street Art is very fluid - ever changing - with the exception of a few larger murals. This makes for an exciting trip each time - what am I going to see today?

    Kudos to the the incredible street artists and their sheer talents. Spend time looking - up, down, in the side alleys, on windows and rubbish bins so you don't miss the small - large intricacies available for the human eye to feast upon.

    You can book a guided Street Art / Laneways tour or grab a map about all the laneways from the Melbourne Tourist centres.

    A stunning building used for son's graduation. Beautiful place to celebrate such an occasion! The outside area was great and during the night had a great feel about it with lots of people hanging out and enjoying the night.

    Excellent family dinner in a local ambience. The team was friendly and polite. The seafood paela and lamb skewer were totally fantastic! Love the food and ambience!

    I f you want to walk down Collins Street, which is around a mile, most visitors will start at Spring St. This is called the Paris End of Collins Street. Apart from the remaining historic buildings, most of the global high fashion brands have are gathered near here. Collins St was once the centre of Australian high finance, where Australia's movers and shakers did their deals. There are still some nice buildings, such as the Block Arcade. By the way, trams in the CBD are free, so if you're tired of walking, hop on a tram.

    I arranged to meet a friend at Brunetti; the normally bustling coffee shop was emprty. We were told Brunetti had been designated a Covid "hot spot" and they were only doing take out coffee; so we walked down Lygon St and found a bench to enjoy our coffee. We chatted for an hour'; the passing traffic was limited. There is no doubt Lygon St will bounce back, as it always does, but although the lockdown has been lifted, people are still wary of being out in public places.

    We did a combined lunch and tour of the building. The guide whom I think was called Mercellez was excellent - she showed passion and enthusiasm despite having done it for 12 years. Apart from knowing so much about the building she was friendly and open to questions. The building itself is a real gem especially if you love Art Deco and vintage history and social stories. I highly recommend this memorable tour. We did have to walk up several flights of stairs but I would say that there were other options if you have a disability - just ask when you go online to book

    There are two halves to Chinatown in Melbourne. The upper half between Russell Street and Exhibition Street seems to have more to it. Lots of places to eat and shop.

    The Town Hall lies at the heart of Melbourne's civic culture. It dates from the latter half of the 19th century, when Melbourne was Marvellous. Amongst its many features, are the Visitor's Centre. The City Gallery hosts rotating exhibitions relating to Melbourne. The Town Hall has always been a centre for the perfoming arts; now it's a favourite venue for the annual Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Whether you can gain entrance to the main hall depends on what functions are in progress.

    Southern Cross Station is a great improvement on the old Spencer St Station. Southern Cross is well-organised and easy to find your way around. It is the main stop for regional and interstate services. If I have one criticism, it's that the conveniences can be difficult to find.

    This foyer could be in any stately building in Europe or Dubai. Melbourne has quite an enchanting building that should feel lucky it has been refurbished.

    I have wandered up Centre Place the last three days. I find it quite enchanting as it is a melting pot of different places to eat combined with the world variety of people coming and going.
