Australia - Melbourne and Surrounds
One of the places I wanted to visit last time I was in Australia was Melbourne, but we were only there for three weeks so there simply wasn't time. Therefore I made it my mission to ensure I went there this time round!
I stayed at the Pegasus Apart'Hotel which was in the perfect location, very close to the Queen Victoria Market and in walking distance of the main shopping area.

I took in a lot of the sights on foot and it felt as though I walked miles! Among the places I visited were, the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, St Kilda and the beaches of South Melbourne.

The main highlight from my time in Melbourne was my Great Ocean Road day tour with Melbourne Coastal Touring. I chose to do a boutique tour which has a maximum of eleven people, however on the day I did it, there were only six of us, which meant the day ran very smoothly and we were able to move from each stop quickly and easily.
