Day 24: Goodbye Melbourne!

Last day in Melbourne! We had a pretty busy day and an enjoyable evening. We went to the Southern Crossing rail station and observed the interesting curved structural steel design. Here's a couple pictures:

After the train station, we headed over to the Melbourne Cricket Grounds and got a private tour, which was really cool. The tour was lead by an old man named Robert who was the typical awesome crazy, funny senior citizen that knew so much about Melbourne Cricket and has been coming to that stadium since the 1940's. I was I could've seen a match in that stadium but we have to leave tomorrow!

We were fortunate enough to be able to go see a play that evening, The Summer of the Seventeenth Doll at the Victoria State Theatre. It was better than I expected it to be even though it turned out to be a tragedy. Everyone loves a good tragedy a guess.

Talk to y'all tomorrow in New Zealand! War Eagle!


  1. Nice shoes - headed to the river later?

  2. Of course. I don't have enough socks to wear tennis shoes everyday though.
