This building has been on my list of must see places in Melbourne because of its beautiful architecture that I’d seen online and knew it was one of those places that had to be viewed in person, so when the chance came to visit on a recent trip to Melbourne I did just that and it didn’t disappoint. The State Library is located on Swanston Street in the heart of the city and from the outside the 1850s stone and heavy column fronted exterior could look like any building of its era, but what lies behind is a spectacular feast for the eyes.
I love our beach house. Its 24 feet long, has one bedroom with ensuite, a spacious kitchen / dining / living area, is air conditioned, has sky lights and a dual axle. The best thing about our beach house is that we can hitch it on and move it to a new beach, a new climate, a new view, whenever we please.
We left Western Australia with some sadness, thinking about all the good times and great experiences we had in that state. That now makes it every mainland state and territory in Australia that I’ve been to. Pretty happy with that! We headed into the Northern Territory, a place we’ve been to quite a few times over the years but haven’t visited for over a decade.
