Sovereign Hills, Ballarat

Here I am posting the last set of my Melbourne Collection. This round we're travel to Sovereign Hills, Ballarat which required approximately 2 hour train ride.

Sovereign Hill is an outdoor museum presenting the story of Australia’s fabulous goldrush history. Its particular focus is the impact of the great 19th century gold discoveries on the growth of Ballarat, which was a small pastoral settlement when gold was discovered in 1851.

Let us enjoy the essence of gold :)

Great Ocean Road

Great Ocean Road is really a great place with great scenery for photography. Unfortunately, this only applies to those who are self driving! If you're following some sort of tour, you will be end up suffering inside the bus. Sitting inside for 4 hours looking through the windows with a crying face. Passing by the great scenery where you're unable to drop down to have a shot. This is hell~~~

End up, my whole collection of Great Ocean Road only contain 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and London Bridge T_T

Melbourne CBD

It's been one week since I'm back from Melbourne, Australia. Finally I manage to get some of my photos converted and uploaded to flickr. Before I started this entry, I was thinking whether I should write it as a travel log or just to make it as a photography lounge. After some deep consideration, I'm just going to link the bunch of photo here since there are rich information regarding on Melbourne flying on internet. Still I will some of the useful information so that you can refer as well :)
