Syd’s Wild Dayz Wednesday 28 December

We started our first full day Down Under with a chilled out day in Melbourne to get over the previous day’s long flights. The day began catching the free City Circle tram from just by our hotel round to Flinders Street station and a visit to the Tourist Information Centre. From there we embarked on a self guided 3km circular walking tour of the city centre and then at the finish of that walked across the Bridge, obtaining a great view of the MCG, to Southbank for lunch.

In the afternoon we took another tram down to the Docklands area and explored this part of the city which has sprung up from the previous industrial area in the past decade or so. Then in the evening, after the surreal sights of a choir singing Christmas Carols on a summer evening and a penguin playing the bagpipes on a street corner, we ended our first day by sharing a delicious ‘tasting menu’ in the Allegro restaurant.
