Melbourne is the “Cultural Hub”of Australia. Every street and avenues are full of little surprises. The most famous beach in the suburbs of Melbourne would be Brighton beach due to the Brighton Bathing Boxes. They are extremely colourful huts built in a row on the beach. It’s a must go place for tourists in Melbourne!
I always believed that Pink Lake in Australia is very dreamy. I never though we would bump into one of the pink lakes during our travels. On our way back from Melbourne at a location just past a town, Dimboola, which is close to the The Grampians, we saw this pink lake! We were on the High way and we spotted this pink lake which appeared to be red from afar. Although we quickly whizzed past the lake we decided to quickly U-Turn and head back to check out this crazily beautiful nature’s creation.
I have always wanted to go to the Grampians National park since I have been in Australia to see the beautiful scenaries, crazy rocks, amazing wildlife and famous aboriginal paintings. After four years in Australia, I finally have a chance to take my young cousin to visit this place during our travels from Adelaide to Melbourne. Grampians is roughly 500kms from Adelaide (5.5hours of driving) we woke up very early that day and made Grampians our first destination!
This time, we travelled from Adelaide To Melbourne via Great Ocean Road. The Great Ocean Road is a 276 km stretch of road built mostly on top of coastal cliffs. The trip is filled with magnificent sceneries ranging from amazing cliffs, raging Oceans and magnificent rocks crafted by the wind and sea over millions of years. It is a road that is well visited by locals and many travel across the world to see. But what to see on Great Ocean Road exactly? We have made a list of can’t missed attractions!
As soon as the announcement for Les Miserables coming to Melbourne’s Her Majesty’s Theatre was made, Laura and I bought the tickets as soon as the tickets went on sale for the public. We bought the tickets 10 months before the show! Which we thought was pretty crazy. It seems like it has become a yearly thing for us to travel from Adelaide to Melbourne for a weekend to watch musicals, last year we watched King Kong. This Edition is 25 anniversary edition that premiered in London in 2010. It’s awesome how they came to Australia 4 years later.
On our last day in Melbourne, York took me to a very nice Italian place in South Melbourne called “Etto Italian Street Pasta” . The place was 20 minutes walk from the place we stayed (we stayed at Crown Metropolis within the Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex). Even though the store was small, it was packed with people dining inside and mainly takeaways.
