After three weeks of general solitude we found all the hustle and bustle of Melbourne a bit overwhelming at first! 

We had a great evening out with Chris' old uni mate Jenny-Lee and her husband Rob. We were given a private tour and discovered some of Melbourne’s secret laneways and rooftops, the cultural hub of Federation Square, buzzing pop-up bars and yummy dim-sum hawker eateries. 

The following day we cleaned out our campervan and returned it. After 24 days of crossing Australia some factoids are: we covered 6718 km, stayed in 19 locations, drank 108 litres of water and stopped to get petrol 22 times! 

We did our bit to support the eradication of blowflies

Melbourne has some great street art

And some very quirky bars - with Jen & Rob
