That lane festival sounds like a lot of fun! The article sounded very surprised by it all... :
"YOU wouldn't normally expect it in a month of Sundays. Melburnians yesterday turned out in force to enjoy a feast of summer festivals"

Are summer festivals not a normal tradition there?

Moving right along from this immature comment.....

Summer festivals are very common, but this summer the weather has been more autumnal, especially after January. Normally Feb has hot weather yet this year the hottest day in Feb was only 35C, normally we see a few 40C and many days over 35C. So considering that the weekend that this particular was festival was held on had temperatures of 21C it was good to see a solid crowd out in force.

Aren't you the guy that always made those stupid threads in the Ozscrapers skybar about "Do you have many lizards in Australia?" and "Do you have many Spiders there?"

You have the worst spelling as well, it truly is appalling. Your grammar isn't much better either.

Well Timmy Brissy, you had better get control of your split personality (uh, oh yeah, we
all believe your "brother" posted that) or I will be more than happy to chuck you in the brig ! Your choice.

Melbourne Docklands at Sunset

I know what you did last weekend...?

Straight from work - walked to Docklands for the Loreal Melbourne fashion festival... it was fun and plenty of eye candies to perve

the link
http://www.lmff.com.au/

The venue was Central Pier in Docklands - it was a massive hall - fit to accommodate the long catwalk....
Its week long show and mainly for public to see what are on this winter...

We ended up having dinner in the area....










National Bank Headquarter




Telstra Dome








Small yacht for the VIPs - cocktail soiree

Melbourne in March.....

I know what you did last weekend...?

March is really busy social calendar in Melbourne...

Sometimes last weekend - i took these photos as I went to Queer and Gay Film Festival and at the same time, Fashion Festival, Autumn Racing Carnivale, and Melbourne Food and Wine Festival were also on ... and then Waterfest Moomba Festival was also one (Gappa has captured this crazy festival that attracted more than half million people to the city)

Oooh and this Sunday - The Australian Grand Prix Formula 1 will start...

I didnt partake on this Melbourne Food and Wine festival this year as some of the ones we were interested were held on Monday and Tuesday nights - its bit tiring after working all day....


http://www.melbournefoodandwine.com....-home-page.asp



I was interested in famous Donovan restaurant Birthday Party in St Kilda but it was Monday night... well we will go there sometimes later... Apparently the party was a blast....

This festival also interesting regular program called THe World Longest Lunch - in Flemington racecourse... pity - they had it on Friday ... some people just didnt have to work .... !

here the excerpt from the link

http://www.melbournefoodandwine.com....w-festival.asp


------------------
World's Longest Lunch


Drink in the expanse of the single, elegantly laid long table. Eat the atmosphere. Enjoy a welcome drink upon arrival - cocktails by Plymouth Gin and Cointreau, Brown Brothers wine or a Redback Wheat Beer. Listen to the clatter of thousands of knives and forks as we serve a delectable three course luncheon with perfectly Victorian wine.

A special train service to Flemington Race course station has been arranged by Connex. The train departs Flinders St station, Platform 10 at 11.35am, Sth Cross at 11.38am and North Melbourne at 11.41am. A return train will run following the lunch.

------------------

There were lots of dinner parties outdoor in the Melbourne famous laneways and there were plenty of discussion and seminars bringing all famous chefs and foodies around the world...all for the sake of enjoyment on food and wine....

yes - it sounds so decadent....


These photos were taken on the way to cinema and there was demonstration - the quintessential Australian Barbeque - right in Federation Square

The Fed sq was transformed into typical Aussie backyard and completed with Australian style of washing hanger, working shed, and green grass... its hillarious

















and also the regular SUNDAY BOOK MARKET in Fed Sq atrium








wait for more photos...

Melbourne Bay - Half Moon Bay Beach

Melbourne Bay

These photos were taken on Monday -after back to back outing on the weekend

Monday was fortunately a Public Holiday and it was really hot day (37 degrees)

So its time to relax on the beach

We went to this Half Moon Bay - at Black Rock in Melbourne south east suburb - at around 6pm - to avoid the scorching heat

Only few people were there - and we had fish and chip on the beach..... aaah perfect Australian summer....

Enjoy










The bay view from the car park - very genteel spot















Couple of hotties on the beach

Melbourne Inner City Neighbourhoods

Melbourne Inner City Neighbourhoods


On Easter Monday - we were blessed with beautiful warm autumn weather in Melbourne and it was an ideal day to go out and enjoy the city.

My other half decided to check some of the houses that his ancestors used to live in Melbourne. We are talking around 2 to 3 generations up and about 1910-1920 periods

The areas we were visiting are now became the city's hip and expensive inner city suburbs and I took this opportunity to capture the areas and the difference house styles in Melbourne neighbourhoods.

Enjoy


Barkly Street, Carlton

The map of Carlton and Carlton North


Cartlon is known to little Italy village in Melbourne due to its history for the Italian migrants.
It is the first suburb of the northern side of City grid - and its famous food and cafe strip called Lygon st divides the heart of Cartlon

It is so handy to get to the city and it has plethora of cafes and restaurants and other modern convenient

There are many Victorian style of terrace houses and now they are fetching prices well above $1M mark to buy.

My other half ancestor used to live in one of those terrance houses and I can assure you that the areas have plenty of architectural delights














Canning St, Carlton North

Next one up to the northern side of Carlton. It is becoming a hip suburb with cute little cottage style homes alongside the wide streets








Edwardian style homes




All furnished and elaborate frontage








There are plenty of two storeys terrace houses around too











The city skyline is in the background
