Yay! We are going to Australia later on this month! Melbourne for 2 weeks, and Canberra for 2 days. My husband and I met while studying at Melbourne Uni in 2004, and I’ve only gone back there once in 2007 after I graduated in early 2006, so you can imagine how excited I am at the moment. Yay again!
My husband has been going back to Melbourne regularly for work, and this time is no exception. It means, for 2 weeks, during the weekdays it will be mostly Mamae and the kids exploring the city.
We have some ideas about places to go that are free or wouldn’t cost us a lot of money…. Melbourne Museum, Royal Botanic Gardens, City Library, State Library of Victoria, and NGV are definitely on our list.
We are going to spend some time at University of Melbourne too. The south lawn is a nice place to “kick a footy”.
And since Christmas is just around the corner, I think it’s a good idea to take the kids to see Myer Christmas Windows.
So, any recommendation for places to go around Melbourne, that won’t break the bank?
