Docklands - Melbourne - Victoria - where is everyone?

Docklands in Melbourne has become a home to thousands of Melbournians, not to mention tourists like myself. I managed to score a very nice unit in one of the many, many high rise buildings that sprung up in that area over the last decade or…

Ballarat - Victoria - a sleepy town with a turbulent past

Ballarat in Victoria must be one of the prettiest towns I have recently visited. The manicured lawns, the tranquil lake in the middle of the town, the black swan. I think I could easily live there. It is close enough to a large city and it looks…
