We arrived in Melbourne late on Wednesday the 27th, in the rain on a day that had been 37 degrees; well it isn't nearly as warm now so as they say here we had to 'rug up'. We did a nice walking tour of the lanes and arcades and there are a lot in a very small section of the city. There is art everywhere, musicians playing along the streets, lots of …
We got on the road this morning at 07:45 – 10 degrees with a light mist and a bright rainbow - and headed into the sun towards Warnambool and along the Great Ocean Road to Torquay then inland to Geelong and finally to Melbourne. We stopped in Peterborough at the first scenic lookout towards the Great Ocean (and it truly is). At 12:15 as we …
Wayyne and I got the Kluger returned to Hertz this morning and walked back to the hotel; no issue with having it overnight and extra night. We got in contact with Erica and met with her and Derek at the 'i' at Federation Square; to get there we had to walk past the tram-way construction again - I'm sure they must have every damned hydraulic …

It is huge with most everything one could ask for and the produce was to die for.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAlto Hotel on Bourke Melbourne
We stayed here with another couple for 6 days and found the hotel and staff to be most satisfactory.
