Do yourself a favour and drop into the NGV for a visit, or high tea, or just afternoon tea, or both.
Not all exhibits cost you to go into, only some. Even so it was only $22.00 AUS. Well worth it, we all thought. They do allow you to take photos in most areas, so long as you don't use flash.
The high tea, was great fun. We had bubbly, and 3 tiers of nibbles to sample. There was also a menu for pot teas, which I loved and tried one, really enjoyed it, and also coffee for the not tea drinkers. You need to book, naturally for the high tea, which is upstairs, but they do have a cafe downstairs with a good assortment of yummies to choose from.
Melbourne with it's diverse cultures is a wonderful place to just stroll around. I enjoyed catching the train into the city from home and then walked from Flinders Street Station, across the Yarra, and up to the NGV. Lovely walk, with street vendors offering their wares, and also (appropriately for Christmas) a silver Angel near Flinders St, station.
All in all a lovely day out with the girls, celebrating a milestone birthday!!
