Just to give you guys a super quick update - Melbourne is a pretty interesting city. Plenty of things to do if you have lots of spare cash and also some free things to do as well. Highlights so far include: AC/DC exhibition at the Museum, an exhibition on shopping at the State Library, City Loop Tram ride, Botanical Gardens etc.
I spent $10 for a ticket to watch a Twenty20 Big Bash match at the MCG - Tazmania Vs Victoria. Dwayne Bravo was putting in a guest appearance for Victoria - I very nearly didn't see him bat as the Victoria opening batsman made their partnership last for most of the twenty overs! Bravo hit the boundary that won Victoria the game. Very good evening out for $10!
Most of the rest of the time in Melbourne has been spent looking for cheap accommodation and a job - neither of which are that forthcoming! I am going to leave Melbourne and do a tour of the Great Ocean Road in a couple of days - hopefully picking up some fruit picking or farm work along the way.
Apologies for the length of this blog - free internet
isn't readily available either!
