City Sights in Melbourne

During our stay in Melbourne, the city was even livelier than usual, with the Australian Open going on and the Australia Day holiday just days away. Hubby and I checked out some of the city's gorgeous architecture and did the lovely 5K waterfront walk from Melbourne's ritzy Port Melbourne suburb to St. Kilda, a beachside area favoured by backpackers.

Federation Square - Melbourne's most modern public space

Condos with indoor pools, and a view of the water. Can life get any better?
Scene-y St. Kilda

Melbourne is a fantastic city for running, and I took advantage of it as an opportunity to also get some great views of the city. The path along the Yarra River lets you take in the city's skyscrapers and also some beautiful gardens - all the motivation I needed.
