Luna Park

Luna Park will turn 100 this year and has proudly entertained the people of Melbourne since 1912.

The famous face was being restored at the time of taking the images, so the face you see is the hoarding created to make it look like the real face.

St Kilda Pier

The pier dates back as far as the 1850's. The original pier was constructed to allow settlers to unload timber and building materials. However a storm destroyed the original pier. It had to be rebuilt and has been extended since. The breakwater was added in 1956 for the Melbourne Olympics to provide shelter for yachts.

The St Kilda Pier Kiosk is heritage protected and was rebuilt after the century old building was destroyed by fire in 2003.

It is also home a penguin colony with more than 100 pairs living there.

Fitzroy is a inner city suburb bordering the north eastern section of the Melbourne CBD.

You'd need at least a week or two to explore it properly.

A day or two? Melbourne is no town and certainly takes more time to explore than a day or two. I've spent weeks down there and not even seen the entire CBD, let alone the inner city.

Really love Melbourne. Its a great city. One thing, however, I find surprising is the bad shape of many buildings. Like people don't invest in maintenance.

Are you making reference to the buildings in Fitzroy? Some people see the "grit" as art and in Fitzroy's case trying to show the working class aspect of this suburb. I can understand why they look that way.

There has also been sustantial gentrification of Fitzroy and inner city suburbs as well, which itself is a great thing.

One aspect about Melbourne which makes it stand out as a city is its love for its history. Melbournians are proud of how the city has evolved and developed since its creation over 175 years ago.

Williamstown

Williamstown, 10km west of Melbourne is one of the oldest settlements in Victoria founded in 1835. In the early days of Melbourne, Williamstown was the main port for the colony with goods sent by barge up the Yarra River.

It is a suburb etched in history. The first batch focuses on the original commercial heart - Nelson Parade and it's historical shopfronts, which over the years has become a popular dining strip. It is popular with tourists and visitors.
