We arrived in Melbourne at around lunch time after leaving Launceston slightly late (thanks JetStar) and picked up the hire car which is smaller than the previous two but better for getting into small parking spaces in the hotel car park. After checking in, we headed down to the river, picking up some lunch on the way and then took a boat trip through the CBD area and out to the port. Not the most picturesque side of Melborne, but the guy doing the commentary was quite amusing.

Then we caught the free tourist tram and did most of the city centre loop (a sudden dournpour scuppered our plans to explore more of Melborne on-foot) before getting back to the hotel bar for a well earned glass of wine.

In the evening, we went back down to the waterfront for a bite to eat (in BearBrass) and some drinks (Transport bar).
