|The city of Melbourne from the Shrine of Remembrance|
Since our hotel is centrally located, we decided to visit this place first, the Parliament House, as it was just a stone's throw away from our hotel. It is the seat of Victoria's Parliament since 1855, located along Spring St .
Just a little across the Parliament House, you will see these two gorgeous buildings: The Princess Theater and Hotel Windsor. A throwback to anything European-looking.

Life is mainly froth and bubble
Two things stand like stone —
Kindness in another’s trouble.
Courage in your own

After a fill of fresh air, we crossed the street to take a stroll along the posh Collins Street. Where the rich and famous of Melbourne, shop. Chance upon Regent Theater on one of the streets near Collins with a big tarp that says "FAME"!!! Too bad we made other plans that night, so we missed out on this chance. And looking back, I am so regretting it.

From Flinder's we proceeded to the Shrine of Remembrance along St. Kilda Road. Originally built as a memorial to the men and women of Victoria who served in WWI, it is now a memorial to all Australians who have served in the war.

We then explored and walked along St. Kilda Road, where you will see a lot of interesting places.
