Hello all! In SBM ITB soon we’ll be facing the final exam (sigh!)…… well there might be stress and more stress starting this week! Butttt there’s always a good news after the bad one, holiday!!!! Ok, here’s some suggestion for your holiday destination; Melbourne, Australia.
1. The Melbourne Arts Centre
(known as the Victorian Arts Centre until 2003) is the major performing arts venue in Melbourne. The complex consists of a major concert hall and theatre as well as a number of smaller performance and gallery spaces, cafes, restaurants and other facilities. It is adjacent to the National Gallery of Victoria (International Collection) and nearby is Federation Square with the NGV Australian Collection, Australian Centre for the Moving Image and BMW Edge performing space. Also in the Southbank precinct is the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art and the Malthouse Theatre. Thus the Arts Centre forms a hub for much of the larger scale arts activities in Melbourne.
2. The Sandrige Bridge
The first bridge on the site was built in 1853 for the original Melbourne and Hobson’s Bay Railway Company line to Sandridge from Flinders Street Station to Port Melbourne at Hobsons Bay on Port Phillip, the first passenger railway line in Australia. In 1857 the St Kilda railway line had opened parallel to part of the line to Sandridge, and the original bridge was replaced in 1858 by a timber trestle bridge carrying two lines of rail traffic, with the tight curve of the original railway removed by rebuilding the bridge on a more oblique angle as seen today
3. The Flinders Street Station
is the central railway station of the suburban rail network of Melbourne, Australia. It is on the corner of Flinders and Swanston Streets next to the Yarra River in the heart of the city, stretching from Swanston Street to Queen Street and covering two city blocks. The Melburnian idiom “I’ll meet you under the clocks” refers to the row of clocks above the main entrance, which indicate the departure time of the next train on each line. This is a popular meeting place, at the intersection of two of the city’s busiest thoroughfares. The station is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.
