On nights when you just want steak and after a hard gym session, letting someone else make food decision on your behalf is definitely not a good idea. If, however, you want an option that hits the protein and carb spots, then Food Republik is the place to be! Continue reading
Melbourne Open House: Coop’s Shot Tower and Museum
I didn’t quite catch what this place was all about. From what I gathered is that they used to make shots. How and why? I don’t know. This was towards the end of my tour, having clocked close to 20,000 steps and been walking for 2 hours straight without water and food. (I didn’t get the chance to eat).
Melbourne Open House: State Library of Victoria – La Trobe Reading Room
The La Trobe reading room is always open. Plus it has been used in a few movies – extra points for you if know which one. I’ll narrow it down for you. It’s one of the ones that Katie Holmes did in the noughties. If that doesn’t get you, then checking out the Ned Kelly armour is another worthwhile visit.
Melbourne Open House: State Library of Victoria – Queen’s Reading Room
This room, in it’s hey day was spectacular. Or perhaps it’s my love of black and white photography that is tainting my views. If that’s the case, the current restoration will give you some idea of how amazing this place is.
Melbourne Open House: Myer Mural Hall
I don’t know whether this was always there in the Myer building or if it’s a new addition. If it’s new, then it’s definitely worth a visit. Why?
Melbourne Open House: Scot’s Church and Assembly Hall
More than once I have walked/travelled past this place and never once did I stop to have a look within here. I was glad I did. There is something about old churches that always makes me wonder. If these buildings could talk, what would they say? How many things have they seen? Survived? Or are yet to see?
Melbourne Open House: The Melbourne Athenaeum
Did you know that the Athenaeum has a library?! Well neither did I!! And they have an amazing range of rare books which is every book lover’s dream. For a measly $99/year, you can check out up to 30 books at a time, countless of eBooks and there are no late fees. They have a whole range of other things you can do here – book clubs, classic movie marathons. You just don’t know what is out there, until you look.
Melbourne Open House: Melbourne Town Hall
The incoming flurry of photographs haven’t even begun. Here’s some of what I captured during my visit to the Melbourne Town Hall.
Melbourne Open House: Young and Jackson Hotel
Watch out… the flurry of photographs from the weekend are coming!!
Melbourne Open House: The 2014 Challenge
