Day 7 – Fitzroy Garden & Melbourne Museum

I wanted to visit one of the many garden in Melbourne at least before heading home, so I chose Fitzroy Garden as it has The Conservatory and Captain Cook’s Cottage. We check out of the hotel and left our luggage at the conceirge then took the free tram to Elizabeth Street and walk to FG, the only garden we manage to visit 😦

We took a slow walk on the way to the garden while admiring the nice ass of the Melbournian Joggers (very envy lah). We saw alot of big coaches park at the garden, guess this is also one of the touristy spot.

We head to The Conservatory first, and I pass the Fitzroy map to hubby so he can do his thing – navigating me! At The Conservatory suddenly strong wind blows followed by light showers, my photo below is the proof.

Captain Cook's Cottage

 We sat on a bench in the Garden and finish up the strawberry we bought the day before from the Victoria Market. By the time we finish our food, then it started to rain again and we have to run for shelter, but before we knew where to run to the rain stop. crazy! Then we pass by the Cathedral again.

Melbourne Zoo tak jadi pergi, Healesville tak jadi pergi, so we went to Melbourne Muzium. The Melbourne Muzium is right opposite of the Royal Exhibition Building.

Walking towards Melbourne Museum

 Inside the Melbourne Museum, we actually spend about 4 hours there, and Melbourne Museum is well worth the visit @ AUD8 per person. Explore  Animals and Plants, Rocks & Fossils, History & Technology, Indigenous Cultures, Human’s Anatomy and many many more. Melbourne Museum is a MUST GO.

After our visit to the museum we head back to the Central CBD, and hang out at Starbucks for a hot cuppa coffee and bought 2 pack of sushi from the Food court for AUD10.
