The various Melbourne threads in this subforum are a great way to start!

And then there's OzScrapers which will have everything you can think of.

Excellent, and doesn't even include Southbank, Rialto or Docklands!
Well done!

I'm trying to make the most of my Rialto membership, so here are a few more photos:





Check out the lights on the shipping channel:


By sheer coincidence, I managed to catch the moon rising.



For those of you who like to click on everything, you may notice that the links are now clickable. I finally got around to making a set of scripts that will display all the metadata on a page. Plus, you can search for (select from a list of) keywords. Not much on there now but I plan to add more photos to it and actually finish writing the scripts in the near future. Check it out. Still a bit crude but it is quite functional.

invincible and The Collector, you guys post the most and the best Melbourne pics of anyone from OzScrapers!

I may as well contribute. Here's a pic (from iphone) from the Australian Open on thursday night. Margaret Court Arena...James Blake v Sebastien De Chaunac. The east block of the city is visible in the background, beautiful view. Better than the enclosed Rod Laver Arena for sure! Cheaper too...but no Federer

Blake won by the way

Great work as always. I've never been to Springvale, looks like the community really got out and celebrated.

Clearing the backlog.












I should probably be a bit less lazy and write up some captions and descriptions.

EDIT: See the whole set of photos (including more that I didn't post) here: http://vq.id.au/photos/collection_static.php

These photos were taken in the middle of February, but the trees are shedding their leaves already.

Melbourned is an awesome place

Eureka skydeck is the best place to go in and have a few view of the city.
