Melbourne's casino is one of...
Melbourne's casino is one of the best in the world, and i've been to a few. hehe. Also the nightlife here is fabulous. A must go to is the F1 Grand Prix in March. Best time to visit Melbourne is from December to April, summertime. Why? Party party paaaarrty. Fantastic relaxing atmosphere. Loads of parks and very spacious, but yet modern enough to shop for everything you could ever want and more.
Victorian Arts Centre
Until Southbank and Crown Casino and the Rialto Tower came along in recent years, the Victorian Arts Centre was an even more focal point of Melbourne than it is now, featuring on all the calendars, etc of the city. The Arts Centre lights up really well at night and can be seen for quite some distance.
I was brought here by friends who study at Melbourne University, to see the historical paintings inside this non-common-look building. Our society view is that, if the building looked less common, that must be something not common and so want to see. I went in to see some historical paintings, understanding some history of history of Melbourne and then I took some photos, typical tourists of modern days.
Melbourne is not easy place to say what to bring the weather can be all over the shop like a mad woman on after christmas shopping spree.what time of year you arrive would change many things on your packing list. medical wise australia's health service is very good at you can obtain most things you would ever need for minor problems .though like traveling to any place if your not local make sure your travel insurence is well covered like any capital city you would be stupid not to bring a good camera as there are many things worth wanting to keep visually long after the trip is over. melbourne people love the beach and we have some area's where there is plenty of sand and for the most part our beaches are clean but unlike sydney victoria's beast surf beaches are more then an hour away at least. this pic is of cocogal and my friend newyork_gal taken with the yarra river and flinders street station in the background.
on the left hand side is the area known as south bank full of shops,bars and restaurants.
and still on that side of the road is the crown casino.
in the moods for some wine
Yering station (38 Melba hwy).
In here is the site of Yarra's 1st vineyard. Yering's tasting area has an art gallery and they also have two awesome restaurant one is located in Chateau Yering and the other one is called matt's bar which is a glass complex overlooking the valley. Their wine ranges from $ 15.50 - 58. for dessert wine I recommend the late harves pinot gris and also their rieslings is quite good too.
