Last week I traveled to Sydney then Melbourne then drove 4000km's from Melbourne to Townsville and stopped at pretty much every major town on the east coast so..

(Albury, Wodonga, Canberra, Sydney, Newcastle, Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, Ballina) and WOOOOW what a country we live in!

This is about the first set of my 3500 pictures I took, so take this set of Melbourne as Part one!

I love Melbourne it felt like Auckland on steroids, its such a beautiful place that I rate it as the best city in Australia and cannot talk anymore highly off.

I'll probably go into greater detail in a later date but because its late at night I thought id share Part one ready for tomorrow mornings early trade :)

















































Part two coming soon..

Sounds like an epic trip, looking forward to the rest of the photos.

That area behind Melbourne's Southbank looks like it is waiting to take off. Lots of empty or barely used spaces there. I guess Docklands is the focus at the moment, but being so close to the city that area should be huge too.

1 + 2 bedroom apartments from $295K sounds cheap by Melbourne standards for so close to town (looking at that add in the 4th last pic), I realise that's the worst 1 br units, but still it's cheap isn't it for a modern development.

I think every development has what they call a 'teaser' apartment that is relatively cheap. It usually consists of a ground floor apartment facing a lane way which the developers can't sell, but at least it draws the buyers in.

I think its great that a person looking for a pad close to the city can get a unit for under $300 000 and that works well for those who work in the city yet dont receive a high income. But then there are the strata fees that go with living in the complex, that would chew up the money saved.

The thing about real estate in Melbourne is the quality of the housing. When you compare it to Sydney, your money goes alot further.

Nice driveby shots though. :)

I didn't even know that we even had that development, im sure it hasn't been reported in the threads, i dont think its on the radar.
I could be wrong, but thanks for mentioning it..

Its been one year since I went to Harbour Town and I like it for the fact that there are few people there. I cannot stand crowded shopping centres. As the area continues to develop, I can see more shoppers using it. Transport also keeps the crowds away too.

Good shots of Collins Street as well.

Yeah great pics - keep them coming. Gotta say, though, Latrobe and the Argus Building are a disgrace. Something needs to be done pretty soon.....:eek:hno:
