The queen victoria market..The queen victoria market..The queen victoria market.. was full with people but not cramped.
G'day mate,

We got the bus from just outside the camp into thecity centre. It took almost an hour but it was a saturday and there are so many sets of traffic lights along the way, your'e stopping every 2 minutes. Our first impressions of just the outskirts of the city was not that great, it looked just like Plymouth! It was no where near as clean or as nice as Adelaide. As we got closer into the city not that much changed, it got bigger with some skyscapers but it still didn't look that nice, well not what we were expecting anyway! We jumped off the tram to go to Victoria market which is a huge thing in the city centre. Everyone seemed to be there! It sold meat, fish, sweets, clothes, souvenirs, fruit and veg all in over 1000 overcover stalls! It was real good fun looking around and not stressful like some of the other markets we have been to!

We went next to have a look around federation square which had some live hippy band playing there. In fact everyone seems to dress like a hippy or an emo with pink hair or something! After
the meat section..the meat section..the meat section.. were 'hailing' about there meat sales all over the place so this bit was pretty loud!
taking in the atmosphere of this 'alternative' (Weirdos!) city, we came back to the campsite to have a few beverages with dinner.

The next day we were off to pinoak court AKA 'Ramsey street'! We drove for about an hour out of the city to get there before turning down a little road, a short way down on the left hand side was pinoak court 'Ramsey street'. We drove up and parked and Han leapt up out of her seat with alot of excitement! The houses are lived in and are only used for block filming 3 monthes of the year! A security guard was sat in a car to keep obsessive fans under wraps! We were the only ones there and its just a regular street, it was really surreal actually! Its much smaller than it looks like on TV. We got some pics but we felt abit creepy as they are peoples actual houses and were probably inside when we were taking them! It was cool to have seen it but it was a shame there was no tour or anything.

We had quite enjoyed Melbourne although it was quite different to what we had both

Party on dudes
