On our way home from Apollo Bay we stopped by Aireys Inlet to view the Lighthouse. Called the Split Point Lighthouse, it was used in the Australian kids TV show Round the Twist. It was not open when we went past, so I captured some photos from the outside.
I visited Rippon Lea House & Garden a few weeks ago. It is a beautiful old Mansion and gardens. I would describe it as a peaceful oasis within busy suburbia. Within its fenced surrounds, you forget you are within a city!
Paradise! Love to take a dip?
It is definitely worth a visit! I’ll be back.
I went with a friend to the State Library of Victoria a few weeks ago. This is no ordinary library – you can’t actually borrow books, it is there as a reference library and place to study or view historical work.
At 2pm they had a tour run by a volunteer called the dome tour. This was a great experience. I learnt quite a bit about the library, and explored areas I did not know existed. Did you know all books published in Victoria must send a copy to the State Library?
The State Library is an amazing piece of architecture. Our tour guide told us the glass in the dome was actually covered for a period of time. Imagine how dark that would have been! Thankfully the dome was restored as it is beautiful!
So if you are free and in Melbourne, I highly suggest the Dome Tour at the State Library.
Last weekend I walked past the RMIT Design Hub on the corner of Victoria and Swanston Streets in Melbourne CBD. Quite a spectacular building, which has a great pattern. I took a moment to get some photos.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend 🙂
A few weeks ago on a lovely Sunday afternoon I visited the Shrine of Remembrance. This building is designed for people to pay their respects to those that have fought for our freedom. I find it quite a lovely place as it focusses on the peace and good in the world, rather than glorifying the evil of war.
What do you think of the photos?
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
Recently I visited Cape Schanck Lighthouse on the Mornington Peninsula. It was a gorgeous sunny day. Mornington Peninsula is such a beautiful place, I was very relaxed and inspired by the surroundings.
If you are ever down that way, its worth a visit!
Cheers, Andrew 🙂
Last weekend I found an interesting bluestone church called St Augustine’s. Quite a lovely building with gorgeous red doors and gates. I love red, especially against the dark bluestone.
Whilst I was capturing my photos a plane flew overhead which was a bit of a surprise. Made for an interesting photo though would you agree?
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend 🙂
