Will be packing my bags tomorrow night for my flight to Melbourne Saturday morning :ok Temperature dropping to 30 degrees by Sunday when I arrive - not too bad I suppose :lol Planning on playing limit RSE game on Monday afternoon (AUS $550 buy-in) with Sky winnings, then a few days of relaxation mixed with PP and IE freerolls if I can wake up in time. Main event starts on the 14th so I should be well settled by then. Will post updates and photos as I go along all being well :ok

Really must find all those clothes I haven't needed to wear since Goa. Big question is - do I need a bikini top ? :eek:loon

If you get time to look around I recommend the Victoria Museum' date=' the gaol, penguin island and eeerr the Neighbours tour and China Town is good for a meal :ok
Was going to post up in GC to ask if anyone could recommend what we should see in a whistlestop visit. Had spotted penguin island in the guidebook so that's a definite for the list then. :D

:D It depends what you are into but I am into history and with Oz being a relatively new country there is very little to be found. The old gaol is very interesting as it was built by the early settlers (convicts) and it charts how the town developed through the 19th and 20th century and the way the curators have done it is amazing to see. It is also the place they took Ned Kelly after his capture and hung him, it is amazing how one of the aussies biggest heros was a violent robber and murderer but they seem to skip that issue and tell you he was a simple Irish man minding his own business and was being persecuted by the English :rollin:rollin:rollin...you gotta love them aussies

Re: Aussie Millions I don't know anything about Ned Kelly :$ - so just googled him - reading the wikipedia article - please tell me it's a wind up and there wasn't really a chinaman called "Ah Fook" :lol :lol :lol

In 1869' date=' 14-year-old Ned was arrested for assaulting a Chinese pig farmer named Ah Fook.[5] Ah Fook claimed that he had been robbed by Ned, whose story was that Ah Fook had a row with his sister Annie. Ned spent ten days in custody before the charges were dismissed. From then on the police regarded him as a "juvenile bushranger".

Re: Aussie Millions Things to do in Mlb ? Ohh tons really, great city. Head down to St Kilda pier at night and check out the penguins, go up the rialto tower 2nd tallest building in the southern hemisphere, take a tram ride; there is a free service that goes round most of the touristy spots. You can head out of town and go up the dandenong mountains, stunning views at the top. Take a tour of the MCG. Have some cold beers in Fed square and watch the world go past. I was going to write, go to the Crown Casino for some poker, but I guess it's already on your list. :lol

:lol:lol seem to remember my 10 year old finding that funny at the time ;). I'm not sure why (gold rush?) but Melbourne had a lot of Chinese immigrants in the 19th Century and has a very large community now. The best pub in Melbourne is in China town The Exford, me and Jeffers had a booze in there a couple of times with Freddy Flintoff and some random aussie called Brownie.
