For the sports lover, Melbourne will again prove to be delightful as it hosts the Australian Open (one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments), the Melbourne Cup ( horse racing) and the Australian Grand Prix (Formula One). Additionally, Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is always on the cricket calendar, no matter which cricketplaying nation is touring Australia. I love seafood. The docklands area (the port) boasts some of the most-exquisite seafood fine dining in that part of the world. In fact, chefs who routinely act as guest judges in the popular reality show ‘Masterchef Australia’ run many of these restaurants. And the view from these restaurants is to die for.
View of Bolte Bridge from Docklands. It spans Yarra River and Victoria Harbour. Decorative, yet utilitarian, installations around Docklands. This walking plaza is a seafood-gourmand’s delight.
