I have to be honest. Actually I would rather've been in Sydney at New Years Eve. But that simply didn't work out. So we were stuck in Melbourne. What can I say... naturally the fireworks in Sydney would have been more impressing, but otherwise Melbourne was a nearly perfect place to spend the last hours of 2002.
Beautiful blue sky accompanied us on December 31st, 250,000 people joined us in the celebration. We enjoyed the great fireworks and the company.
Melbourne is nice place to be any day. The small city center with loads of museums, beautiful parks with shopping possibilities, and much much more. I loved a night walk, which led me to the Shrine of Rememberance and back to the Waterfront. Great!
