Melbourne my beautiful

  5 votes

Melbourne is a 3.5 million city, capital of Victoria in the south of Australia. It features a modern city centre and apart from that, no skyscrapers but an endless sea of little victorian houses. Through the city runs the Yarra river, which combined with the many parks and gardens, cafes and restaurant, and relaxed people gives the city a laid-back feel.

Favourite spots:
Royal Botanical Gardens - a great place to enjoy a sunny day. Brunswick Street - lots of groovy bars, cafes and quirky shops. The State Library - they have international magazines and newspapers.

What's really great:
The people are really laid-back and friendly, always up for a chat.

Accommodations:
Don't know, I rented a room in a shared house.

Hangouts:
There are lots on Brunswick Street, but I can't remember any names.

Restaurants:
Lots of choice on Brunswick Street or Southbank (Blue Train Cafe; Bonbons).

There's also a great Thai place on Bridge Road in Richmond.

The Tram restaurant in a converted tram carriage.

Other recommendations:
Aussie Rules Football at the MCG.

2 hour walk from Brighton Beach to St. Kilda.
