Welcome to Melbourne!

Melbourne often gets overshadowed by the glamorous Sydney, but once I visited Melbourne I found it hard to leave. Beautiful city with a very welcoming and at-home feel to it, Melbourne may possibly be my favorite city in Australia.

Jet Lag

Melbourne being my first stop in Australia, it took me a day or two to fully adjust to the time change. But the upside to that was I caught a beautiful sunrise from my hotel balcony overlooking the city that first morning.

So Much To Explore

Melbourne is very much a city alive with the bustle of the crowds. One of my favorite things about it was how easy it was to get around on foot. This last picture overlooks Flinders Street, one of the main streets running parallel with the Yarra.

Pros and Cons

    Nice page, the photos are great! If only the flight to Australia wasn't so long!
