On Trend Attraction: Eureka Skydeck 88 and Edge Experience, Melbourne, Australia

Eurekea Skydeck 88 - photo courtesy of eurekaskydeck.com.auEven as a Melbournian I loved this attraction as it gives you a different aspect of all those other Melbourne attractions you thought you knew.  For the extra cost we did the Edge Experience and while it is a cool thing to do, it is probably not essential.  I would suggest you go late afternoon so that you can see the city in daylight, stay a while and you can take in the night view and gain two different perspectives from the same view.

Life’s a beach at Seaford Beach, Melbourne Victoria

Seaford Beach, Melbourne Australia

Seaford Beach, Melbourne Australia

How good is this.  It has taken Alex and me 30 minutes to get to Seaford Beach, Melbourne by car, using the Eastern Freeway all the way and passing through a total of a mere 3 traffic lights (too easy).   It is 5:00pm on a Saturday and still about 32 degrees.  There is hardly anybody on the beach, the water is perfect and there is the occasional tease of a breeze.

A flash Christmas party at Mural Hall, Melbourne and a not so flash taxi ride home

So it’s approaching Christmas and time for the annual Christmas work function (groan).  Working in a fairly large office you get invited to some nice Christmas party venues and the venue this year is one I am looking forward to although its probably not necessarily the coolest Christmas party venue.  The coolest venue was probably the Big Brother house at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast while I was living in Brisbane but I am getting off topic… oh yeah… Mural Hall, Melbourne !

Hilton Hotel, South Wharf, Melbourne Australia Review

My (long suffering) partner Alex did a very smart thing recently when he booked us to stay a night at the “new” Hilton Hotel at South Wharf, Melbourne.  I actually initially gave him a hard time about booking a hotel at South Wharf given we were going to attend the tennis that night and the Tennis Centre is at the opposite end of the city to South Wharf.  But… having now stayed at the Hilton, South Wharf, I take it all back Alex and admit that I was r…r…wrong (which is very difficult to admit)!
