... is actually slang for food that is made from native Australian vegetation/fauna. We had a short walk around the farm and were introduced to local plants and we smelled some, ate others, and stared at the rest. Surprise though, there's a spinach I LOVE. Shocker!
After we saw the plants, we went inside a restaurant on the farm where they make food from the plants! (And trout, and other things).
Then we continued on to a koala reserve! YES KOALAS. They were all wild so we ...
... back in the UK we were plumbing for Richmond – Go Tiges! Sadly, however, Richmond were handed somewhat of a spanking, going down to Hawthorn 118 to 52! We are still not 100% sure on the rules of the game but it was a great atmosphere so we enjoyed it nonetheless!
On Tuesday we set off down the Great Ocean Road, which is a couple of hours south\south-east of Melbourne, where we spent the next three nights in a house ...
... things I have learned about the Camino de Santiago de Compostella, is that while many pilgrims have similar experiences of the local people and other pilgrims, the walk itself, the food, accommodation, friendships; it is also a very personal experience at a deeper level where things inwardly shift. Priorities in life can change to lesser or greater degrees and some people find the internal journey life changing. Walking long distances over weeks or months, ...

... when it was very expensive to buy, so as a reward for their help, 'Satan' allowed the men that helped him distill it to drink it for free. Oh yeah, and because it was so hot they all got naked. Hence the name, Naked for Satan. Glad we got that cleared up. Then it was back for a quick drink at my hostel and a goodbye. After packing, a quick 'f you' email to my landlords and a shower, I was ready to say see ya to Melbourne and prepare for my trip the next day. The Next ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mantra 100 Exhibition Melbourne
Sistemazione fantastica, strutture eccellenti e posizione ideale. Proprio a due passi da tutto, soprattutto dai ristoranti. A poca distanza a piedi dalla zona dello shopping. Il personale era molto disponibile e accomodante. Abbiamo richiesto una partenza ritardata che ci hanno accordato senza problemi. Soggiorneremo ancora qua ogni volta che andremo a Melbourne.
Excellent accommodation, facilities & location. Just around the corner from everything, especially places to eat. Short stroll to the shopping precinct. Staff very helpful & accommodating. We required a late check out which they gladly were able to accommodate for. Will definitely be staying there everytime we go to Melbourne.
L'atrio non colpisce molto ma è compensato da una fantastica sistemazione. L'appartamento era enorme con un ampio salotto e una cucina completamente attrezzata. La camera da letto era abbastanza grande con un enorme letto e un bagno lussuoso. L'appartamento è stato ristrutturato di recente con mobili costosi. Un ottimo prezzo.
Die Lobby ist keineswegs beeindruckend, aber die Zimmer sind atemberaubend. Riesiges Apartment mit großer Lounge und voll ausgestatteter Küche. Schlafzimmer von guter Größe mit massivem Bett und luxuriösem Badezimmer. Wurde kürzlich mit teuren Armaturen ausgestattet. Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.
Unimpressive lobby but made up for by amazing accomodation. Huge apartment with large lounge / fully equipped kitchen. Good sized bedroom with massive bed and luxurious bathroom. Has recently been refurbished with expensive fittings. Very good value.
We arrived early afternoon and were initially checked in to a smoking room. We stepped in to the room and it was too smoke logged for us and our 1 year old so we returned to reception to be checked in to a non smoking room which was fantastic and not any trouble at all to Maria in reception who was lovely and very patient with our son touching all her things!
stayed a week in self catering accommodation, Pacific International on Exhibition. Excellent accommodation, would use them again. Very modern and right in the heart of Melbourne coud'nt hav e been better and there was a 24/7 supermarket very near by. If you have a National Trust Membership card, take it with you to oz, you would be surprised where you can use it. Ned Kelly's jail was a good visit, and do go to the MCG and have a tour round the ground etc. its well worth it, also the casino area down on the waterfront, the food there is fantastic. Melbourne is a great place, and don't forget a day trip to the Great Ocean Road.
A lovely one bedroom apartment, kitchen facilities very good.
Bedroom cushioned between living area and bathroom which was great as no noise from busy main road.
Not in the heart of melbourne but great tram services a short walk away.
would stay again, shame we only had two nights there.
OK, not too impressed
We stayed in a two bed apartment. It was a very dark and the main living area was overpowered by an expanse of white kitchen cupboards. I'm not sure their purpose, as the equipment for the kitchen took up half of one cupboard. This left approx 15 huge cupboards bare! This did make the living area utilitarian and had a souless cold feel to it. The bedrooms were ok. The back room had no window and was very dark. The bathroom was tiny, with a half sized bath. Sorry to keep on about the kitchen, but the designers of the room could have halved the kitchen area to make the bathroom a lot bigger. It was very central though and the staff was pleasant. The room was also clean.
(Luxurious) home away from home!!
Stayed at the Pacific International in May 2003. A quiet little boutique hotel, it is perfectly located on Exhibition St which is only a 5-10 minute walk away from the main Melbourne High Streets.
The Pacific has spacious, beautifully decorated rooms with separate bedroom and living areas and chic, well-appointed bathrooms. The living rooms also have their own kitchens and dining tables (so no room service) which, along with the comfy sofas, make the Pacific a real home away from home.
All in all, had a wonderful stay at the Pacific, which successfully combines the luxury of a 4* hotel with the comforts of home.
