Melbourne, Australia Self Drive Road Trip - Day Five

Continued from previous....

Finally, we have come to the end of our trip. As the Chinese say, "There is no never ending banquet under the sun" meaning All good things must come to an end. We had to check out of the hotel by 11 am so we went out for a quick walk and tram ride this time to Federation Square, Southbank and Dorklands.

The Melbourne Visitor Center at Federation Square is a good first stop for tourists, not last stop as we did.

Flinders Street Station - a good meeting point for friends

We were treated to a Sunrise in Australia and a Sunset when returning home to KL.

We stayed at a motel, a serviced apartment and a hotel. Each one of them was lovely in its own way. Parkview Motel, Port Campbell was a lovely little motel we could drive right up to our doorway. Campus Clayton Serviced Apartments had all the amenities of home while Holiday Inn Flinders on Melbourne was strategically located near the Southern Cross Station and within walking distance to many attractions and tram stops in the city.

We visited two universities. We met students, workers, other tourists, buskers, living statue performers. We saw kangaroos, a group hopped right across our car at one point, koalas, dingoes, rabbits, birds, penguins, wombats, lots of cows and sheep. We saw old buildings and new ones.

We drove 1000s of km, walked 1000s of steps and it was all worth it. Of course, now we are back, we will have to sleep many hours to recharge our batteries and get back our momentum. It took me hours to record our trip in writing because otherwise, it will fade with memory but it is worthwhile to make that effort. Now I have a record of our memorable family trip that I can search for when details skip me. That's the beauty of a blog. The posts were written with a combination of photos from our mobiles.
