All of our travelers settled into luxurious accommodation and enjoyed some of the exciting sites in Melbourne on our “Historical Melbourne” supported group holiday.
We visited Old Melbourne Jail where we heard many interesting stories of past inmates including Ned Kelly. We all thoroughly enjoyed being locked up by the warden in cells! In the afternoon, we took a drive to the MCG & AAMI Park as it was raining. Then took a walk around Fitzroy Gardens to relax before heading back to our rooms to get ready for our dinner in Chinatown. Huge day enjoyed by all.
Next we enjoyed a long ride on the famous Puffing Billy steam train!! We traveled from Belgrave Station to Lakeside Station soaking up all the amazing views, finishing off the day with a beautiful Italian dinner. A definite must do in Melbourne!
On our last day in Melbourne we squeezed in as much as possible before flying home. We started at AC/DC lane, everyone enjoyed the murals & took an opportunity to take plenty of pics. Next stop was lunch by the water before shopping at DFO. Our day concluded with a relaxing cruise on the Yarra River & some more shopping at Melbourne Central. Melbourne sure was the place for shopping!
After a big day, we headed back to our accommodation to prepare for pizza night! Then it was time to pack our bags, ready for our flight home to Sydney tomorrow morning!
We loved Melbourne. What a fabulous city!
