The Coolest Floor In Melbourne

I sent thee to the vanished garden of colour.

This is the most amazingly floor, which I found accidentally in Melbourne’s National Gallery of Victoria or the NGV as it’s referred too. I was actually hoping to see the massive stain glass ceiling they have there but unfortunately it was closed for a private function by Dior so I wasn’t allowed in. Instead I went up to the first floor to get a better view of this fantastic floor that they have. Isn’t it hypnotic!I found that I could stare at it for ages and see all sorts of shapes and patterns in it.

Dunedin At Dusk

Along the path of rock and time.

The Dunedin peninsula has some fabulous stone walls on it that date all the way back to the days of the first settlers. They break up the land like a jigsaw and while some have fallen down, there’s still a large number that are standing, which is fairly impressive considering how exposed to the elements some of the walls are. If you go exploring for them you’ll need to remember that they are on private land and farms, especially around lambing time. Fortunately, this track is open to the public throughout the whole year.
