Melbourne, Australia

Land down under

After that terribly long flight, I have arrived in Melbourne, Australia. I will be staying at the The Westin Melbourne Hotel. The cost per night at this 5 star hotel is $195.

I will spending the first day of my stay here relaxing and getting familiar with my surrounds. I have nothing planned for this day but I am hoping to have recovered from the long flight enough so that I can go for a walk to visit nearby shops and parks.

On day 2 of my stay in Australia, I will be going to the Melbourne Zoo. The Royal Melbourne Zoological Gardens contains more than 320 animals from Australia and around the world. This is the oldest zoo in Australia and was opened on October 6, 1862. The cost of admission to the zoo is $31.60. I am looking forward to seeing animals which we do not have back home.


On Day 3, I will be heading out for an evening at the opera house. The Melbourne Opera House is one of the most iconic places in the world. They are known to be the leading opera company in the world. It was founded in 2002.


Now I am off to my penultimate city which is Auckland, New Zealand which is 3 hours and 45 minutes away. The cost for this flight is $623.
