[photos] Australia: Touring Melbourne, National Gallery of Victoria

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.
