Almost wet myself when I saw these, love it.
I can easily see why Melbourne is the most liveable city in the world .. it has stunning shops, restaurants, cafes, pedestrian friendly, architecture for all tastes, beautiful scenery, friendly and very cutting edge (the list goes on) - I would be very proud to live there Thanks for the comment

In addition to what Alphaville said, Matthew Flinders was also the person who originally adopted the name Australia for the continent.

According to Wikipedia, he is second only to Queen Victoria in the number of statues erected in his honour.

... number of statues in Australia, I'm thinking?

I would think figures like Ataturk, Mao and Lenin would have had more statues erected in their honour than either QV or Matt Flinders.

Interesting thought though!

Aww, I'm glad to see that SYDNEY and Mr Kiwi Fruit enjoyed your holiday here. I moved to Melbourne 5 weeks ago, and I'm still loving it. So many great little hole-in-the-wall bars, crazy laneways and beautiful old buildings. Your photos are beautiful, and I hope you enjoy it just as much when you move here (you said you were moving here, right?). People here are very friendly, and it's easy to find work, so it's a good city to relocate too. Plus (I assume) you're both on Kiwi passports, so you'll have no problem with immigration laws.

My flatmate is a gay kiwi, and he says Melbourne's just like a really big Wellington. So that means I have to visit Wellington one of these days

So what did you guys do when you were here? What's your favourite area? You'd better both start supporting Carlton in the quintessentially Melbourne AFL as well, don't ever become a Collingwood supporter though....

Am very very happy to see you enjoyed your time here.
