Melbourne General Cemetery

 Melbourne General Cemetery is one of the most important cemeteries in Australia. The first burial was in 1853 and there have been more than 3000,000 burials. It is almost a walk back through Melbourne's history with some notable interments, so much so that they do run tours of this cemetery.

Harcourt Rail Bridge Victoria

The Railway Bridge, over Barker's Creek, near Harcourt in Victoria, this bridge was constructed of Harcourt granite in 1859-1861. It is a picturesque three arched bridge on the Bendigo to Castlemain  rail line is still in excellent condition and is on the Victorian Heritage Register.  

We called into Kallista on the way home and blended in with the bus loads of tourists, who were feeding the wild birds there. So I took the opportunity to take some close up photos of Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Crimson Rosella, Long Billed Corella.

One of Melbourne's most recognisable landmarks and one of the city's much loved cultural icons. 'Under the Clocks' is a favourite Melbourne meeting place, hence the phrase "meet me under the clocks"
