Day 9 : Melbourne

Then we crossed the Yarra River. We passed the Round Concert Hall, The Victorian Arts centre which houses the Australian Ballet and the Melbourne Theatre Company (this building is easy to recognise with its high metal tower - 115 m) and the National Gallery of Victoria with one of the biggest collection of international pieces of art in Australia.

Then we finally arrived at Kings Domains. This park (together with the Royal Botanical garden) dates from 1852.

These parks are the green heart of Melbourne, a real oasis to walk and enjoy the green.

In this Kings Domain you also find the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, where a lot of open air concerts and ballet performances are held, there is place for 15.000 visitors.

Another nice spot was the Pioneer Women's Garden, and while walking around we discovered more silent and hidden gems in this park.

Address: Saint Kilda Road
