Melbourne 2012

On Monday August 27th 2012, 80 very excited Year 6 students  - and six teachers - descended upon Coolangatta Airport bound for Melbourne!

Thanks for these photos Mrs Collins!
Thanks Mrs Jones!

We were met at the airport in Melbourne by our coaches and whisked away to our first stop - the Melbourne Cricket Ground!

A guided tour of the entire ground - players' rooms, the Members' Area, the Long Room - everywhere!

The Members' Area - what a view!

The view from the stands.

Melbourne Skyline from MCG
Thanks Blake!

Our fantastic tour of the MCG was followed by a visit to the National Sports Museum - a museum located at the MCG dedicated to Australian sport!

We travelled to our hotel - Melbourne Discovery -  after our time at the National Sports Museum had come to an end. 

After checking in, receiving our keys and finding out who our room-mates were  we enjoyed our first dinner in Melbourne...... and set off again....for a night time visit to Eureka Skydeck!

Finally, to bed - the end of an action-packed day!

After a great night's sleep (???) it was up for a 7am breakfast before heading off to the world-renowned Melbourne Zoo

Great photo Mallika!
Lucy's excellent elephant photo!

Next on the itinerary, the Melbourne Museum!

Next, the Chinese Museum...............

Great photo Bailey! Thanks!

At 8am we set off for Ballarat - Sovereign Hill!!

Another early start - bags packed,  rooms tidied  - and it was time to hit the shops with a quick visit to the Queen Victoria Markets before heading to the airport and our trip back home!  

Farewell Melbourne!

For taking us to Melbourne I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot but best of all I have lots of fun and I hadn't been to Melbourne since I was 4, it was great to actually seen what the MCG looks like in real life and things like that.
