It's currently 2 degree's (according to our internal heating). We're not complaining. We have mediterranean summer's-- so the icey wind and frost is only at this intensity in July. This will warm up soon. Spring (Sept-Nov) is beautiful- and probably the best time to visit. Februrary can be repressive heat- where we usually have a week of 40+ days.

Mount Dandenong - Melbourne

Mt Dandenong and surrounds

These were taken on saturday - sunny Spring day... time to drive off to the mountain

We went to Mt Dandenong -its about 60kms from City and 600 meter high in altitude above the sea




A beautiful little town called Olinda is on the way ... great spot for holiday

Its a long and winding road - its simply breathtaking drive to this part of town.


















Had afternoon coffee and cake at SKYHIGH









Its balcony has a wide view over the metropolitan MElbourne
















also went to Rhododendron Gardens
yet it is not fully bloomed yet....

The Rhododendron Gardens are absolutely stunning in late Spring!
Worth a visit.

P.s. the first three shots are of Sassafras, not Olinda, Ali.

Grand Final Parade

Despite Global financial market gloom, things are very happy in this city. The wonderful spring has sprung and the warm weather has embraced the city again and more importantly, the Grand Final has arrived.

One fine day in September - Melbourne will stand still for the greatest day in its sporting calendar - the Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Final

To celebrate the Grand Final weekend - they staged the annual tradition of Grand Finale parade which took place on Friday midday in the city main street. I did come around to check out during my lunch break. It was a sunny day reached 25 degree and the atmoshphere was just simply awesome.

It attracted almost 70 thousands of spectators ... especially this year is the only time since 2000 that both local Melbourne teams reach the final.

Some roads were closed and helicopters hovering the sky - its such an important event for this sport mad city....

This time the reigning champion Geelong team will face off with the glamour team Hawthorn

Some of photos taken - around Melbourne Townhall







Geelong captain - Tom Harley below




bit of fanfare








the Hawthorn players







Hawthorn superstar Lance Franklin




Fans and spectators filled the city and embraced the festivity
















Lance Franklin in action





(photos are from the AGE)

for those who fancy some sporting talents - the Gods of Football are also in competition to win... their good look
check it out

the actual grand final itself is happening right now....

enjoy the tour....
