Melbourne Daily Photo
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.

Tram Or - Horse and Carriage?
Did you know that any horse-drawn vehicle is permitted to enter the city centre? It’s an old law, but it still holds today. Designated park and stop areas for horse-drawn vehicles are marked along Swanston Street. See Map.
Horse-drawn carriages can show you around Melbourne - imagine relaxing back and, to the gentle sound of the clip-clopping of horses hooves, being taken around the streets of Melbourne, around the Yarra, over Princes Bridge, in the comfort and style of a bygone era.
You might decide on a Royal Blue Landau Carriage, drawn by two beautiful white or black Percheron Horses - you could even have fully uniformed coachmen dressed in red tails and a top hat! Now that is guaranteed to impress! So catch a ride from Swanston Street and let your trusty steed take you on a nostalgic journey as you traverse the wonders and marvels of Melbourne.
