After our tea/coffee break, Mike and I went across the street to check out Hosier Lane and surroundings, known for it’s vibrant street art.
Definitely a great opportunity for some photographs! Here are a few of my favourite shots.
Really liked the boy and girl in this shot
I can spend hours wandering through alleys like this observing the art and looking for hidden stories.
Down below and up above, something interesting to see everywhere you look.
Even garbage bins can be art
We then made a quick stop at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV). It was then we realized that there are actually NGV sites and the one we visited first (closest one to Federation Square) was of Australia.
We didn’t stay for long, but I really enjoyed looking through this room. Visitors took time to sit down and draw their version of Jan Senbergs’ “Show Us Your World”
We then walked over the bridge, across Yarra River and passing by Flinders Street Station along the way.
Enjoyed the view by the river and decided we would definitely walk along it later.
Not too far away was the National Gallery of Victoria – International.
Unfortunately, what we didn’t realize was the gallery closed at 5pm and it was already 4:30pm. That was alright! We did a quick walkthrough with plans to return tomorrow. I didn’t take many photos, but loved this stained glass ceiling.
Christine met up with us shortly after 5pm to hang out for the evening. She agreed to a walk along Southbank Promenade by Yarra River, which was lovely with the view and enticing aromas of food from nearby restaurants.
We ended up stopping at Saké Restaurant & Bar to enjoy a drink. Christine and I had the smallest (but tasty) belinis we’ve ever seen while Mike really enjoyed a sake bomb.
With the first pangs of hunger, we hopped on a tram towards St Kilda beach for dinner… read about it in our next post! 😀
