Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Stained Glass Windows






These are some of the east facing windows of St. Monica's RC Church. They were made by Hardman of Birmingham and date from the 1940s and 1950s.

A snippet from the National Trust says "and vaulted eastern apse with elongated windows. The main facade incorporates a large traceried window framed by an arch and octagonal turrets placed above a deeply-recessed porch. The building is notable for its elaborate window tracery and soaring hall-church lit by spectacular stained glass."

Hello there, I'm Hanisah from Malaysia and I'm studying culinary art. This may be an inconvenience for you but i'd like to know more about your country. I've an assignment about international cuisine and i'd like to use your country as my presentation but i'm not sure about the information that i've gathered from the net is accurate or not. And i was hoping to be dressed in australian type of clothing but i'm not sure about the custom clothing there.
Please give me advice, if you are willing to help me please email me at misskishimaru@yahoo.com.

And FYI i love the beauty and the scenery of your country it's so beautiful and your blog is so fascinating. Love the pic.
