Melbourne - December 2007

Second stop on our Christmas sabbatical. A sightseeing tour around town, a day trip to Phillip Island to watch the Penguin Parade and see their nesting sites, Christmas at the aquarium and since Melbourne is the cultural capitol of Australia, we took in a couple of plays - Monty Python's Spamalot and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Now that's culture! Believe it or not, Spamalot was universally preferred by the Hongsons 3.


Every night there were hourly pyrotechnic displays at the Casino (across from our hotel)


The botanical gardens
Luna Park at St. Kilda beach
The wildlife park on the way to Phillip island.








Worlds longest earthworm museum!




Christmas! Santa found us!




Going stir crazy?
