Myki a bit confusing. Pricing not great for this. You pay the same price for one stop or multiple stops! It's free within the cbd itself though. Try Lune croissanterie 161 Collins Street!!

Melbourne is a beautiful city. There are lots of parks, great boat ride through the city to willimastown and the trams are very convenient. The new skyscrapers surprised me as the colours change as the sun strikes them from different angles.

It's not in the same League as Sydney but well worth a couple of days visit especially to take the ferry down the River Yara to Williamstown.
