Melbourne was our second stop in Australia, we spent the first couple of weeks with the lovely Hunts, our friends from the UK. We visited the city , the beach at St Kilda, ate incredible food and enjoyed the luxury of living in a beautiful house. Thankfully we even managed to land ourselves jobs and after a telephone interview at half 4 we started …


I had 3 months to get fit enough to hike 20km trails graded 'hard' for days on end. My plan was to do 1/2h brisk walk each day and on weekends do an approx. 20km hike in the Warrandyte State Parks nearby.

    The "Backpackers bar" downstairs charged $10 for a pint, hardly backpacker prices. We paid in advance for our 5 nights, then when they lowered the prices of the rooms they refused to refund us the difference, as if they didn't know the prices would change when we paid! Out of the 5 nights, we had 2 nights' sleep, we were on floor 7, yet the music from the bar on floor 1 sounded like it was in the next room, and it went on until 5am! Half of the facilities like cookers and washing machines didn't work, in fact we had to spend about $20 just to dry our washing because the dryers were crap! Overall - absolutely rubbish, stay somewhere else for your own sake.
