Healesville Sanctuary

This past weekend, we went to Healesville Sanctuary for the Wine & Wildlife event. After a stressful morning navigating public transportation, we spent the day sampling wines and looking at animals! Definitely coming back to this awesome place whenever we can.

National Gallery of Victoria

I went to the NGV last week to see the Festival of Photography, and then I just walked around admiring everything. My favourites were the William Eggleston and Ross Coulter exhibits. The former is a window to the past, while the latter is a kind of modern take on performance art.

Photography is so diverse and amazing.

City By the Yarra with No Fixed Address

Last month, I got to photograph a tour by No Fixed Address. Their mission, from their website:

“We are offering competitive, world-class walking tours, delivered by experts who are considered homeless or living in supported housing. As our guides are from the streets, they’ll be able to comment on not only the history of the city, but also delve into the
impacts of historical events that affected our society.”

Our tour guide, Pete, showed us parts of Melbourne I didn’t know existed! It was a great time and I highly recommend it as something different and interesting to do in this city.

Car Shows

I met up with a photography group to go check out some classic car shows this past Saturday. These were taken at the Souvlaki Hut Charity Car Show and Rockabilly Rats, Tatts N’ Pinups at the Waltzing Matilda hotel. There were a lot of American cars that were good to see. I was extremely happy to learn that rockabilly music is popular here and people know how to swing dance!

Queen Victoria Market | Melbourne

One of the greatest things to do in Melbourne is visit the Queen Victoria Market. It’s the largest outdoor market in the southern hemisphere, and it has absolutely everything you could think of. From home goods and clothes, to all kinds of fresh foods, to live chickens.
These were taken on two different days: a busy Saturday and a Wednesday winter Night Market. We plan on doing all of our grocery shopping here 🙂
