We've purchased tickets through Calder & Lawson House of Travel for the last four days of the Aussie Tennis Open. Sure we could have booked them online but for the second time we've done it through Calder & Lawson because it guarantees us great seats which are out of the sun

As enticing as the shops are, we’ve hired a car and are heading to the Dandenong Ranges. Once through the suburbs we enter the eucalyptus forest, towering above us long straight trunks soar to the sky, protected by the canopy tree ferns flourish below. It is beautiful. We stop just shy of the village of Kallista at Grants Picnic Ground. Here 20-30 enthusiastic cockatoos and multi-coloured rosella birds greet us, looking to us to feed them, it isn’t long before one settles on Cea’s shoulder! It sits quite happily there for some time until we move on to walk one of the three loop tracks on offer.

There's nothing better than coming back from holidaying overseas with something different to the standard chain store purchase. Melbourne doesn't disappoint, in fact it's retail heaven.
Clothes, homeware and, for the sanity of my husband, motorbike shops all in the CBD - everyone's happy. In fact I could actually open a shoe shop, short of not wanting to part with any of the pairs I've bought.

Flew into Melbourne today, coming from 24 degrees to 13 was not nice! Went up Eureka Skydeck to experience 'the edge' - the view was insane! Would highly recommend this to all.

I conquered the Sydney Harbour Bridge climb this morning - the history and views are stunning! Finished the day off with a very relaxing harbour cruise on the Captain Cook - 24 degrees today! Just like a summers day.
