Melbourne, by far, has the best and most grand architecture in Australia. One of my favourite things about it. Just walking the streets taking it all in. Nothing quite compares here.

Such a shame to see so any of the older buildings go, but unfortunately progress, and changing tastes, does that. Some were lost to fire though, like the Garden Palace and a cuple of Melbourne buildings too.

I would love to see more stonework incorporated into new buildings here in Melbourne, but cost is always a big issue it seems for such 'luxuries'.
