Cathi and Dave stayed in the Melbourne CBD on Flinders Street.
After we returned from our Sydney to Melbourne tour of the high country and our visit to the gold rush town of Beechworth, we visited the State Library of Victoria to see Ned Kelly’s armour.
We also attended the Formula 1 race – see all the photos here.
During the 2014 Australian Open televised in the US on ESPN, Tourism Victoria ran the commercial ‘Forever Yours’. The song is ‘New Night’ and is performed by Ali Barter. ‘New Night’ was written and composed by Ali Barter and Oscar Dawson for the 2014 Tourism Victoria ‘Suitcase’ campaign.
The lyrics to ‘New Night’ are:
Like a laneway leading to another world
Like an oyster holds a secret, holds a pearl
There’s a reason why we’re here now on this earth
No, please don’t say another word
OoooOoooh, OooOooh, on this new night
OoooOoooh, OooOooh under starlight
We, we take a long drive on this new night
On this new night we will stay
