We stayed one night at the Sebel Lodge Yarra Valley and really like the rooms with a nice view on the golf courses. The restaurant served excellent breakfast with everything imaginable included. What was disappointing was the internet fee of 0.55 AUD a minute. While the rate was capped at around 30 AUD/day, you would easily spend that amount for only an hour of connectivity, which is just too much!

1st Stop - Gas station to get a Maxibon (if you ever come to Australia, you need to check out the ice cream department - in fact, in this moment, stop reading and google 'Maxibon' - DE-licious!)
2nd Stop - The Pokie. Contrary to popular belief, this is not the same thing as the 'Hokey Pokey.' In fact, it is called 'Pokies,' and yes, it is an Australian term for a casino. No food to be served, too tired and too upset to drink, the waitresses felt pity for ...
Work is done for us both so now to focus on the holiday.

... however the famous beach huts (worth $500,000) distracted us and our cameras for the next hour. The view of the city from Brighton was amazing, and we decided to find a bar and sit, have a drink and admire the sights. We headed back to Melbourne for the evening to grab our stuff and get some food before we had to catch the, as Suze described it, "disgusting bus" to Sydney. ...
... and hold events. They were playing the cricket on the big screen when we arrived. From federation square we got on the free tourist tram, this is a old looking tram which goes in a loop round the city. As we got on at 5pm they didn't do the full loop but we got to see a lot of the city once we had a seat. The tram gets very busy and when you are stood up you cannot see out the window. We went for a look around the big shopping centres and got some posh cream for our cold faces and ...
... including ACDC Lane and other quirker parts of the city. We stumbled across a fantastic place for dinner down one of Melbourne’s main alleyways. Sitting outside on a Saturday evening having dinner was just surreal. I had rarely gone out for dinner while staying in Melbourne previously and it was nice to have an explore of all the amazing places on offer. We were going to stay out longer but our 4am start was beginning to catch up and the pair of were fast asleep by 9pm, old buggers that we ...
