Last week, my family came over to Melbourne during the Easter vacation period and we had a great time discovering different parts of the colourful city together. We opted for a slightly different itinerary this time around (its the second trip for my family), exploring neighbourhoods that were slightly off the beaten tourist track and enjoying what typical Melburnians would like. I suppose we had the benefit of my prolonged stay here as a student, plus our insatiable curiosity to try out unique experiences in different parts of the neighbourhood.
Here is the start of our 10 day holiday in Melbourne, the Great Ocean Road, South Australia’s Limestone Coast, Adelaide City (and surrounds), and Kangaroo Island. First off is a trip around the city. I hope you enjoy this journey as much as we did!
Our first stop was the Children’s Garden located at the Royal Botanic Gardens, off the South of the Yarra River.
This huge gourd was almost as long as Ethan’s leg, and is probably still growing daily at an alarming rate.
