While tennis was our main objective in Melbourne, we still planned to explore the city in our off-time. Unfortunately my 36 hour fever/cold coincided with most of our time in Melbourne so we didn’t experience as much of the city as we had planned.
After the day session of tennis I had enough energy to walk around for an hour, so we started along the river.
Melbourne has created a nice bicycle and pedestrian path along the river that provides several nice vantage points of the city.
Southbank; CBD (central business district).
Federation Square and museums
Hosier Ln. Note the bride in the far left…

There were many fun pieces and quite colorful on the whole, though there seemed to be a higher ratio of simple tagging to art than we experienced in Ghent. Could just be time of year or the areas we visited. I’m definitely glad we found a few of the alleys and I wish we’d had more time to find some others.
The next morning was slow with Leandra doing some laundry and catching up on work emails. After our breakfast with a local foodie blogger we got back in the car for our drive up the Great Ocean Road.
