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.

Saint Ronans (Wishing) Well
Maybe not a fountain, but even better - a Wishing Well.
Driving along the beautiful Black Spur, on the side of the road is Saint Ronans Wishing Well. If you enlarge the picture, you can see the water trickling in the lower right-hand side.
Saint Ronans Well is a natural mountain spring and when you stand here you can hear (and see) the sound of trickling water as it gently flows over the small rock wall and down a gully, under the road to the other side. Listening to the twitter of birds trilling their merry song make this an enchanting place. There is a space for two (or maybe three) cars to pull over and park.
