The trains don't stop here any more!!
The Buangor railway station now sadly sits in a state of dis-repair, with it's broken windows, the peeling paint, missing wall boards, the guttering that is falling off.... The rail line first came through around 1875 but I'm not sure if the station building is of that circa..

Melbourne's first Night Noodle Market being held in the Alexandra Gardens November 18-30 it's open weekdays from 5pm and weekends from 4pm admission is free.
We decided to go in Saturday night 23.11.2013 and have a look, we left home at 5pm and although busy around inner Melbourne we found a car park easily and caught a tram to Alexandra Gardens.
Well if the crowds were anything to go by the first night market will be a great success with food from countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Japan, Indonesia, China, India, Philippines. However we found that the queues for the more better know eateries were very long stretching from one side of the area to the other, so the wait would have been an hour or longer to be served. We opted for Aangan Indian stall because the queue was a lot smaller, but I have to say the the food was excellent and we felt it was good value for money. Overall we enjoyed the experience..

A recent visit to a garden of a friend, bought to mind a old saying, one man's trash is another man's treasure. I did love my visit to this garden it just had so much charm, every where you looked there was something tucked away, nothing seemed to be waisted, even an old pair of boots were used as a planter pot...
