I really enjoyed the photography and decorative art exhibits in this admission-free museum in Melbourne. It has great architectural and water displays as well. It's definitely one of the better museums I've visited and comparable to those of Paris...

One of the best places to enjoy Thai food in Melbourne is Chin Chin, which also serves local wines (they have Old World wine options, too). Chin Chin doesn't take reservations, but there are plenty of places to wet your whistle (or change your...

One of Melbourne's top picks for ambiance and great food is Cookie. Unfortunately, I didn't take photos of my entrée to visually back up my claim. You'll find Cookie on the first floor of a multi-level walkup. Additional establishments occupy the...

Coming from the bush - Hurstbridge, Australia - by train one enters from Flinders Street Station to the heart of Melbourne. This city is beautiful in its old world charm mixed with eclectic modern architecture. Just a delightful sight for the...

Of all the cities in Australia, Melbourne is the one fussiest with its morning cup of joe. Here are five tried-and-true coffeehouses that have survived the city's critics and can be proudly considered Melbourne’s finest. 1. Brother Baba Budan –...

The Press Club in Flinders St is one of my favourite eating & drinking houses in Melbourne. Last time I was there the eatery was booked out so over to the Press Club Bar we went. 20 types of Ouzo - don't mind if I do. Of course, one needs to drink...

Dumplings are my favourite food group. Yes, in my diet, they make up a whole food group of bite-sized, juicy deliciousness within a soft, preferably thin dumpling skin, which is then dipped into a bowl of soy sauce and freshly chopped ginger—oh...

Coming in off the streets of a typical windy and wet Melbourne winter's day, it was a welcome relief to be able to relax next to the fully stoked fire. My gaze flickered over the menu, from which names like "Mr Fu," "Communist Manifesto," and...

This rooftop bar is THE place people dress up in Victorian costume for (not talking Halloween) and is just as fun as it's menu-which includes descriptions with "!!!" Seriously. Quite classy, the cocktails for "two players" or "playing doubles" are...

Cumulus, Inc. in Melbourne was, without hesitation, the best dining experience I had while on the continent of Australia. Is it fair to build up a meal so boldly for a restaurant that changes its menu frequently, if not daily? Perhaps not....

Maits Rest Rainforest Walk – well, that was my first acquaintance with a rainforest ever! The experience was not something that you undergo every day. I don’t think I ever felt so close to nature – fresh, green and pure. There’s nothing more...

When my guide described the place we were stopping for lunch, on our way back to Melbourne following completion of the Great Ocean Road, I pictured a truck stop; an American, side-of-the-road barn with quick eats that would offer McDonalds or...

The 12 Apostles are one of the most visited of landmarks or natural elements in Victoria, Australia. Most, drive to see the rock formations which jut out from land into the crashing ocean waves. Visitors can also ride in a helicopter over the...
Great Ocean Rd, Princetown VIC 3269, Australia
There is something primitive about seeing Twelve apostles - like earth trying to come out of ocean. It feels like traveling in time. This time, I also took a short helicopter ride above them and it was astounding.
