The day after the Great Ocean Road tour, we met up with a passel of folks under the guidance of australianjoe for a day long tour of Melbourne. As two in our party with mobility-impaired, Our Host had worked out a route that included plentiful tram hops and many rest stops.

Our first destination was the National Gallery of Victoria. We weren't there for the art, but for the architecture.

Can you believe they wanted to ditch the water wall in the recent rennovations? I think the ceiling was always safe, at least.
