Upon checking in to Ibis Melbourne's Little Bourke Street. Our 1st meal was... Korean instead. Can't remember the name of the restaurant, but it was just a few blocks away from the hotel. Meal was pleasant, we had soothing feel after having non-rice meal over the past 8 days. I don't specifically crave for rice, but it was fine. We had a walk around Melbourne CBD, took the Circle Tram, half through the town. Circle Tram is free, hence no hassle to wait under the chilling Spring weather. We walked around, near China Town too. Identifying the area, before our last day's street walking.

On Day 2, we were out on a full day tour to Great Ocean Road. A Tour With A Difference (http://www.atwad.com.au/). The tour van came picked us up from the hotel. There were headed to Great Ocean Road. Weather wasn't promising that day. Hence pictures were not as nice as expected. I barely remember where I have been, except some forest educational tour, light house, ocean rocks over and over again. Didn't quite enjoy the journey, as compared to self-drive trip. Good thing was, lunch and dinner was included in the tour package. That saved us quite a penny.

After lunch, our next destination was Eureka Skydeck 88. Unfortunately, the sky turned gloomy in just couple of hours. I have been wanting to visit this place since it built. Remember those good old days when I was peeping it through my colleague's office nearby. View from the top view was simply lovely! One could stay as long as you wish up at the viewing deck, free Wifi available, there's no limit on your stay. You may bring along foods/drinks and sit whole day. Simply awesome. Unfortunately, we do not have much time spent, was there only 1 hour as we need to catch our flight that evening.
