    Melbourne – the food lanes. explore 🙂
    their tropical forest museum 😛
    yaari river train ride -> food ain’t that great -> if you have done these trips in other places then probably not so great
    The night trip has wine tasting.. plus you can visit all the Masterchef restaurants 🙂

    Oh visit the digital museum (sorry blanking out on the name.. but it is the downtown/ CBD area) – they have movie making business and how it has changed over the years and use of various techniques – technology/color/hues.. i like it

      Thanks! We’ll mostly be sticking to the CBD (where our hotels are) in each city since we’ll be doing a lot of traveling other times (including the Indian Pacific from Adelaide to Perth!). I’m already excited about all the food in Melbourne and am sad that I only have one belly since everything sounds delicious, especially since we’ll be so close to Chinatown.

      We’ll be in Adelaide, too! But just for a really short time (like, a day) that’s already super full. 😩

        Thats unfortunate. 😕
        I am actually surprised you will be coming to Adelaide. Not many people know Adelaide. Just one day is too short though, there is a few places like Kangaroo Island, Victor Harbor, Flinders Ranges, Port Lincoln. I guess you will be just going places close to Adelaide like Hahndorf, Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens. The flowers will be nice as its spring in September. But you will never know the weather in Australia, someday we have 4 seasons in one day. 😂

          We’ve a day set aside for Kangaroo Island! But just not much time in Adelaide proper, unfortunately, since we’ll be there primarily to board the Indian Pacific (which is how we’ll end up in Perth!).

        I hope there is more beanies here from Adelaide. It will be great to have a dramabean gathering here. Which part of Australia are you from?

          Secret: Brisbane is the best part of Australia 😬😃

          Have a great trip! For Melbourne visit the Great Ocean Road, for Perth go down to Margaret River and for Sydney you will see the Opera house anyway!

    Me! Me me me! I am out and about at the moment but will be back in Oz by then. I live in Canberra, which is almost exactly between both Melbourne and Sydney so happy to do a Beanie catchup in either.

      I have a little more free time in Melbourne so that would be easiest for a meetup (plus we’re there on a weekend) but I’m also an awkward duck who feels extra awkward asking people to change their plans to meet a random internet stranger. 😂
