Graffiti Alley Melbourne

This is my second visit to Graffiti Alley in Hosier Lane in Melbourne. It was much busier this visit and parts of the alley were badly shade effected. Making it difficult to get photos looking down the ally in some directions. But still worth the effort as this alley is ever changing and some of the art work is just stunning.

Werribee Park Mansion

Werribee Mansion  was completed between 1874 and 1877 by brothers Thomas and Andrew Chirnside who were wealthy pastoralists. The mansion boasts 60 rooms in several wings and was built in Italianate architecture style. It is a lovely place to spend some time wondering around the formal gardens or through the beautiful mansion.

Victoria State Rose Garden

A visit to the Victoria State Rose Garden at Werribee was a delightful way to spend several hours on a Sunday just wondering around enjoying the scents and colours of so many different varieties of roses. Sadly for us though the 34 degree temperature and hot wind the day before our visit had taken a toll on many of the roses. Which meant we had to search hard to find good roses worthy of a photo, but find some I did.
