We enjoyed walking around the city and doing some shopping at our European brand stores that we do not have in America. We then stumbled upon Eureka 88, which is the highest observation deck in the Southern Hemisphere. We enjoyed going up to the top of the building and all the spectacular views.
After grabbing lunch in the city centre it was off to the Australian Rules Football game. This game was a cross-town rivalry game and drew a crowd of 70,000 people. We learned immediately that the Aussie’s love their football and are very passionate supporters of their squads. It took us a little bit to understand the rules of the game, but thankfully there were nice people around us who taught us the ins and outs of the sport. I think they also found it entertaining because we were absolutely clueless but yet eager to learn.
Goodnight from Melbourne!
