My mother used to work in this building. Like forty years ago. Before I was born. It was a bank then. One of those things that you never think to take photos of until after it's gone, so I took some photos of it.
Also today they raised the Sentinel another level. But instead of "10" there was a whole stack of cool graffiti!
Woke up in the middle of the night from hurty, and was delirious enough to stress over the time - 2:43 but in what time zone? Probably the first 2:43.
Aimed to leave the hotel at 9am this time (since it was "really" 10am), giving us an extra hour in Melbourne :)
Decided that we were going to go do the super duper expensive hotel restaurant. Turns out it was an all you can eat buffet for $35 each. I only managed to get two plates worth of food in (I never get good value out of all you can eats!)
Went back to our room and packed up, then checked out and left our bags with the concierge, and Nat and I did a quick photoshoot of the hotel.
Went for a wander up Exhibition St. Saw sushi burgers and a sign saying nothing happened.
Then wandered up through Exhibition gardens (Carlton Gardens) to the Exhibition Building.
I was most surprised when we got around to the north side of the building because there was a whole museum that wasn't there fifteen years ago! Made taking photos from the north a little difficult heh.
Decided that we'd actually go into the museum and have a look.
Pygmy blue whale skeleton
Big taxidermy room "Wild" .. at least a lot better organised than the one in Japan
And we have a thylacine too!
I had a long wander through the body exhibit, and then a quick run through the mind exhibit (would love to have spent longer there) before meeting up with the others to decide on a plan. While everyone decided what we were doing next, I raced up to take some photos of Phar Lap (would liked to have looked through the whole Victoria exhibit there as well)....
So went back to the others and we walked up to Lygon Street. Although we didn't have time to sit down and eat, Nat got some take away pasta from one place. Next time we'll organise ourselves better to actually eat here properly.
And then it was back to the hotel to pick up our bags, and hop in a taxi to head off to the airport.
Our plane back - Virgin Blue 737-8Q8 (VH-VOU)
We didn't get much of a view during the flight because it was dark, but we did get a nice sunset from the plane on the tarmac
So arrived back in Canberra and Andrew drove us home.
Totally great weekend away, lots of fun, and even a decent amount of exercise :)
We want to come again next year and organise ourselves better to see some of the comedy festival and have a proper meal on Lygon Street :)
