Greetings from Melbourne. It's a great city, we're really falling for it. Check out the photos - tell us what you think!

The hostel we are staying at is very expensive, but on the flip side it has lots of freebies, so it is our policy to cane them as much as possible. This means free tours and pickups!

One of those free tours is a vineyard tour, which we did today. The 'winery', which we went to today, is located in the Yarra Valley, to the east of the city. Located in the town of Healesville, the winery was small and they didn't have that many samples to show us! However it was free so we made the most of it!!

After that we headed back in to the city, where we had a tour, which showed us some of the landmarks. Melbourne is huge, with 3,000,000 habitants (about the size of Birmingham).

In the evening we spent time in the hostel's 'RooBar' (how cheesy!) meeting more of the travellers at the hostel.
