54: Melbourne, Australia (Travel to the Great Ocean Road)

March 14, 2019

Arriving in Melbourne was exciting as we began our month traveling to a few cities in Australia. The large, beautiful city has a multicultural vibe with a ton of great restaurants, strong artist attitude, and a beautiful coastline. We walked for miles around the town taking in all of the beauty of St. Kilda, eating at a Japanese restaurant on Chapel Street, and enjoying the street art within every pocket of the city. The trip was topped off with the ride down Great Ocean Road to take endless photos of the gorgeous beaches and unforgettable landscape. Spotting bouncing kangaroos and sleeping koalas were a bonus that made the week in the city a great start to our adventures in the Land Down Under.
