    heaps of places , such a pity you going for such a short period of time.

    Great ocean road
    12 apostles - go during the sunrise when sunlight is softer and away the cliffs

    Angelsea Golf course
    if you want some kangaroo shots in the golf course, of course

    St kilda beach
    with the tram shot , and Luna park (newly renovated) with its colorful icon, The luna mouth
    Sundays at st kilda beach can be quite crowded, good for street shots

    Fitzroy - brunswick street
    A colorful suburb filled with restaurants and quirky shops, check out the shop signs and shop display if u are into those shots

    Fitzroy Gardens
    If you like possums, cute google eyed marsupials, they come out at nights, pretty tame for good animal shots, just bring some food, Note : can be quite agressive

    Ripon Lea Estate
    Old victorian building , good architectural shots, love the garden, offen weddings are held here

    Werribee Park
    Another old victorian estate, with the rose garden, old colonial mansion, spreading estate, lotsa locals go for their wedding pics here

    WIlliamstown
    A suburb with lotsa victorian houses, good for a drive

    Hanging rock
    This weird place is famous after the Peter Weir movie, Hanging Rock,
    basically a rock emerging from a flat land, mainly farmland, beautiful shots taken at dusk, with an errie feeling, especially when the fog comes in

    Daylesford
    If you are into interesting countryside, cottage houses, romantic lavander farms
    Basically a popular tourist getaway for the Locals, not many tourist go there
    I took many shots there, mainly farmhouses, country pubs, victorian houses

    Little desert Park
    about 4 hours away from Melbourne
    Wild life, plenty of good camping sites, on the way there, you will pass the Pink Lakes (they are really pink!)
    Good lighting helps, coz i went there when it was dull and cloudy, you need rich sunlight to capture the pink lakes.

    Gee, i can go on and on,
    but then i won't
    there isn't enough time to visit all of them!

    Sunlight is great in Australia, anything u take, turns out good!

    Enjoy your stay in Melbourne. Walk around the city if you're into architectural photography, plenty of interesting details. Got to mention that magnificent blue sky we can only dream of over here. Good luck.

    Its Melbourne Central. Located at the corner of LaTrobe Street and Swanston Street. Diagonally opposite of RMIT. Shouldn't be hard to miss.

    Here's a pic of the 12 Apostles I took during my trip to Melbourne in May last year. This was taken during the sunset.


    All my pics during the trip were taken using my Minolta SLR camera. Took abt 10 rolls there. A lot of nature and scenic places.
    The building within a building in Melbourne Central is an interesting place for an interesting picture.
    Another nice place will be Brighton Beach where they have the colourful beach huts.
