Port Authority building, Melbourne

You feel pleasantly lucky when you can look out of your hotel room in Melbourne and see this nice old bit of architecture. Melbourne of course did well, architecturally, when the 1850s goldrush money poured into town - there are a bunch of beautiful Victorian buildings. In addition to that Victoriana, there are plenty of other buildings to appreciate as well. Sydney has a bunch of good ones too, but it's when you visit a less familiar city that you tend to notice more.

More happened than appreciation of architectural detail...more photos to come. It was an excellent flying visit.
