Melbourne, Australia Self Drive Road Trip - Day Four

Melbourne is a curious mix of the old with the new

Day one and two was on Nature. Day three for animals and Day four is on towards the city. We did not exactly plan it this way but that was how it turned out.

On Day Four of our Self Drive Road Trip, we drove from Campus Clayton Serviced Apartments to Melbourne CBD after checking out in the morning. The weather got better and better since we arrived with fear of rain and flooding.

We drove straight to Holiday Inn on Flinders, Melbourne. It was still early so we dropped our baggage, got back into the car and drove to Southern Cross Station nearby to return the car. After that, we went about on foot and on trams.

It is easy to walk around Melbourne or to take the trams on the free tram zone or better still take the city circle tram or free tourist tram which comes around every 12 minutes. When you are in the tram it you get to hear recorded info about the attractions in the city, all for free.

First we walked to Queen Victoria Market, then we went to Melbourne University to visit our niece. We went to walk around the University, look at the lecture rooms, libraries (there are 10, we only looked at 1) and had lunch there. Then we continued walking about the city, visiting Saint Paul's Cathedral, the State Library was splendid.

We sat around Flinders Station walking people passing by and went to watch the Buskers near Myers. Finally we had dinner at Chinatown before calling it a day and returning to the hotel.
