Sightseeing day in Melbourne city. We took the train to the city with Geoff Hayhow as our tour guide. Weather a bit grey and chilly but we had a great time exploring a fascinating city. It’s a mix of modern high rise and lots of narrow lanes crammed with shops and cafes, very continental in feel. We travelled around on the extensive tram network and between us saw much of the central distriact as well as St Kilda’s beach, numerous shops and the Percy Grainger museum! Sarah and Nick also took in the view of the city from top of the Eureka tower, the highest building in the southern hemisphere.
All the students returned to their host families for the evening. Back to work mode tomorrow with a day at Westbourne Grammar School where we are doing workshops and a concert.
