Melbourne – The Most Livable City
Melbourne is one of the most livable city in the world. It is the capital of the state Victoria. The friendliness and welcoming nature of this city is evident by the number of people from other countries settled there. The beautiful landscapes, the awesome beaches and the brilliant weather; they all make me want to go to this most livable city, to feel more lively than ever. Maybe my dream will be fulfilled someday. Here are some of the places I wish to visit.
The first one that caught my interest is ‘The Great Ocean Road’. It is a 243 kilometers stretch of road along South-eastern coast of Australia between the Victorian cities of Torguay and Allansford.
See that? Imagine driving along that road in a car with rooftop open. How awesome it must feel to watch the ocean as you drive along this 243 kilometers road. A deep longing goes through me
even as I imagine myself driving along this path. Then there are the 12 Apostles. They say these apostles began forming from constant erosion of limestone millions of years ago and the sunrise and sunset are especially beautiful at this place when they change colors according to the sunlight. Here is a video that shows the 12 Apostles from the sky.
Next on my list is the Penguin Parade. Have you ever seen Penguin? In real? I haven’t! I have always been fascinated watching them over TV but never have I seen them in real. So I want to visit ‘Penguin Parade’ which is one of the popular wildlife attraction in Australia. Watching several penguins emerge from the sea around sunset and watching them march towards their sand dunes must be a spectacular scene.
Then there is the ‘Princess Theatre’. This is one of the most spectacular landmarks of Melbourne. But this isn’t the only reason. It is said that this theatre is is haunted by a friendly ghost and since I read that, curiosity has got the better of me. I have to visit this theatre once.
Next is ‘Eureka Tower’. It is 975 ft. skyscraper. Even though I am scared of heights, I am definitely going to pay for the skydeck experience. I want to go on ‘The Edge’ which is a glass box 3 meters out of the building, almost 300 meters above the ground. Imagine the thrill! It’s pure adrenaline rush. It will be once in a lifetime experience.
Oh I forgot! ‘Peninsula Hot Springs’. It is said to be the first natural spring and day care spa in Victoria, just 1.5 kms from Melbourne. Just imagine soaking in this heavenly place, letting the healing waters work the magic as you relax! Too good to let go, isn’t it?
