Winter Break in Melbourne
Posted Jul 16, 2016
Took grandkids to Melbourne to experience an AFL game at the MCG, plus a few other things depending on the wonderful Melbourne weather. The hotel is within 2 blocks of Melbourne Central which has Hoyts Cinemas. It is opposite a the Exhibition centre and to the Museum which has an exhibition on Jurassic Park them on dinosaurs. The hotel apartment became our home away from home. The hot water was excellent which you might understand after 3 hours at MCG highup and freezing. Found the skating rink at Harbour Town (& Icehouse). The kids skated until then dropped, one price of about $27 let them go all day if they wanted, $4 for us to watch, but we got a coffee with it. The grandson was still recovering a week later, strained his tummy muscles. Very clean and friendly atmosphere in the hotel, without watching you like a hawk. I would return.
