We had a wonderful 3 day experience with Sea Kayak Australia, exploring beautiful Wilson's Prom. They were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and professional right from the beginning of our booking until the end of our trip. It was an unbelievable experience and couldn't recommend them highly...MoreI am glad you had a good time. Dane is great value and the scenery at the north end of the prom is remote and beautiful. Please come again on another sea kayak tour.

Escape Rooms are an exciting & challenging real life experience that enable small groups of people to use clues within and sometimes beyond the room to solve puzzles that allow them to escape the room.
We had such a great time trying to decipher the riddles and clues. The clues themselves were very well thought out, and I am surprised we actually cracked all of them, as they were so clever! Great thing to do with a family, an hour...MoreHi Afamlonga, Thanks for taking time and reviewed us!! We glad to hear you all had an amazing time in our escape room and we hope to see you again soon. Nick and Benson

Operating since 1993 with many experienced riders licensed by Victorian Taxi Directorate.
Every year my daughter’s school organises 'a surprise transport' to take the Year 12s for a final picnic. This year we organised a Harley ride from Yarra Junction to Healesville for 15 Year 12 students. John and the guys were very efficient and friendly - even waiting down the road to make a well-timed ceremonial entrance which thrilled the entire school. The kids were then taken on a road trip towards Lilydale and then Healesville, travelling the scenic route through the Yarra Valley Wineries. Each of the students was provided with an appropriate jacket and helmet with a speaker that allowed them to talk to the rider. The class described the trip as 'fantastic', 'exciting', 'cool' and could not stop talking about it. If you are looking for an exciting and original way of doing some sightseeing I could not recommend them highly enough -there are also side-cars which some students rode in and enjoyed.

The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is Australia's largest, oldest and most popular sporting venue. The MCG has hosted plenty of international cricket, including the first-ever Test and the 1992 World Cup final, countless VFL/AFL Grand Finals, the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games. It also hosted the final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Other sporting spectacles include FIFA World Cup soccer qualifiers, rugby league home and away matches and State of Origin and international rugby union clashes. Apart from its sporting events, the MCG has also witnessed many blockbuster music Concerts, and even Pope John Paul II held a mass there when he visited Melbourne in 1986. The MCG has a total capacity of 100,024 people, comprising 95,024 seats and 5000 standing room spaces. The stadium also houses the National Sports Museum, which includes some of the most priceless pieces of memorabilia in Australian sporting history.
A fantastic experience for any sports fan, regardless of your interest or experience in Australian sport. As it happens, I went to the first game of the season with 90,000 others, and this in itself is a very rare experience. Not expensive either, so get there for the opening bounce.

Visit the Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne's most iconic landmark, where Victorians have been coming since 1934 to honour the service and sacrifice of Australian men and women in war and peacekeeping. Enter the Shrine and experience the quiet solitude of the Sanctuary where hundreds of thousands pay their respects each year. All visitors are invited to participate in a Remembrance Ceremony featuring the Ray of Light re-enactment. Surrounded by the Shrine Reserve, the Shrine is elevated, overlooking the city of Melbourne within 13 hectares of beautiful parkland. Enjoy stunning views of the Reserve and many of Melbourne's landmarks from the balcony of the Shrine. Explore the monuments and memorials throughout the Reserve, including the Gallipoli Memorial, as well as the many remembrance trees dedicated to Victorian service units from the Boer War onwards. The Eternal Flame on the Second World War Forecourt symbolises eternal life for those who have served. The Ray of Light ceremony is central to the experience of the Shrine of Remembrance. A ray of natural sunlight passes through an aperture in the ceiling of the Sanctuary and falls onto the Stone of Remembrance over the word "love" at precisely 11.00 am on 11 November each year. This is the moment when the armistice was signed in 1918 marking the end of hostilities in the First World War. The ceremony is now reproduced every half hour using electric light to allow all visitors to the Shrine to experience it. The Shrine also has an extensive permanent and temporary exhibition space. The Galleries of Remembrance is a $45 million Victorian Government redevelopment that utilises 1,600 square metres of undercroft space beneath the Shrine. Over 850 objects illustrate the experiences of Australians at war and in peacekeeping operations, from Pre-Federation to the present day, with a particular focus on individual and unit stories of Victorian service and sacrifice. A highlight of the exhibition is the SS Devanha lifeboat, a Gallipoli landing boat on loan from the collection of the Australian War Memorial. The Devanha carried soldiers of the 12th Battalion and the 3rd Field Ambulance into Anzac Cove on the morning of 25 April 1915.
An amazing building with a million stories of heroism, sacrifice and man’s inhumanity to man. Having spent 30 years in the army as a chaplain these sacred places tug on your heartstrings as you see the individual faces and learn how ordinary people have done extraordinary deeds to protect loved ones and fight for peace. The sunlight service is beautiful in its simplicity and pays respect to those who have suffered and died in service of Country. So much to see - give yourself plenty of time to look around this treasure!

It really doesn't get much better than this! The performance (which celebrates Graeme Murphy's 50 year contribution to the Australian Ballet) starts of with a film clip of Graeme talking (amongst other things), about his passion in finding the artist in performers - that moment...MoreThanks for your review and thoughts on the production and costumes. Happy to hear you enjoyed the introductory short film which will form part of a documentary by Philippe Charluet. Keep your eye out for that one!

A grand building of the Victorian era with a gorgeous dome and excellent facilities.
With a day to spare in Melbourne I decided to visit the library. The changing face of Victoria exhibition was excellent. I enjoyed seeing Ned Kelly artifacts too.
Later I visited the geneology section where I was helped by a very knowledgeable lady.
