Ok...apologies again for late updating but we r veryy busy hehehe...anyhoo last time we were in thailand so i wil continue...
Since the zoo in thailand we mainly went shopping...in markets and MBK shopping centre so nothing out of the ordinary to report there...then we flew to melbourneee, ozzielandd....
When we arrived in Melbourne it was a very chilly 14c ! Bearing in mind we only brought summer clothes really we were cold! We stayed in spencer hotel which is just 10 mins walk from the city centre and was really nice and friendly and welcoming. On the first day there we mainly explored the town and got to grips with the trams around the city and the ozzie life. PLus we found out that on the saturday the aussie footy grand final was taking place in melbourne and over 100,000 people were expected to come :O busy busy.But big party atmosphere around the town. On the finals day the city was heaving and everyone was wearing some kind of footy shirt and there was a big screen in federation square which we watched some of the game at which was cool. We also went to queen victoria market and up the rialto tower where u can get 360 degree views of the city...didnt see much due to rain and its still really cold! Went out for dinner with some others from the hostel to an indian then onto an amazing choclatier place for dessert mmmmm. Met some very weird/cool people at this hostel lol. On sunday we ventured to st kilda and the beach...really beautiful area...if it wasnt for the 50kmph winds and rain lol. But loads of little streets filled with cake shops and coffee shops. Then on the way back we found a dfo outlet shopping centre where they do hollister, abercrombie and american eagle outlet! We were a tad excited hehe.
More venturing round melbourne and there is a free city tram for tourists which does a whole loop of the city with commentary and u can hop on and off as u pls and its free! Lovely! We used it very much to our advantage :D. Also visited the old melbourne gaol where we saw a reenactment trial of ned kelly and were 'fake' arrested and put in the watch tower! Really good...well worth a visit!.
Then Tues we did the awesome neighbours tour and went to erinsborough high, the studios and actual ramsay street with the real houses where the real people live!!! Then we went on the tour bus and watched old schoool episodes including scott and charlenes wedding and then went to st kilda and met connor (used to be in the show, irish dude??) and had a chat and photees with home for a while :D
ANyhooo will update sooon....onto sydneyyyyyy
