After the chaos of Dubai and 13 hours flying overnight we arrived into Melbourne and rain! By the time we check in and get sorted the suns out and we head to St Kilda beach to chill as tomorrow we head to the Great Ocean Road.
The walk to St Kilda takes us through Albert Park which is a lovely peaceful space just seconds from a very busy …
So we had a nearly 16 hour flight from LA to Melbourne but it really didn't feel like it.. Getting used to long flights as they don't feel so long anymore.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBayview on the Park Melbourne
A good choice for a reasonable priced hotel over the Christmas holidays for us. A bit out of the city but we enjoyed being near Albert Park and walking distance to St Kilda beach.. The restaurant, pool and especially the staff were excellent. We were upgraded to a 5th floor room which included a seaview due to a problem we had, which Matthew the Manager sorted in double quick time. Very professional and helpful even though the hotel was full due to the time of year and the Cricket supporters!!!
